Eight hours and some shopping and... Whaa-lah!!

Every summer I get blown away by the local road racers. In the fall of 2010, I went to extreme measures and added two walls to the carport to make a 7x7 spinning closet. The rudimentary addition cost a measly $225 and still affords the wife the ability to pull the family van underneath in the wintertime. Four pieces of plywood, 20 2x4s, a couple boxes of deck screws, a door, and some foam caulking basically got the job done.

To top it all off, I removed a door to the furnace room, so the shed is heated and has light!! The addition of tool boards, TV/DVD, dresser drawers, and storage shelves make the shed a versatile and comfy place to hang out. Even though it is still early this winter, the addition has kept me in better riding shape then any November since I lived in Santa Rosa, California, back in 1996.

The work I put in during the winter months surely paid off as I am riding better then I ever thought I could. This shed is the main reason for the big turnaround from being a competitive retard to a competitive die hard.

Interestingly, I had toyed with the idea of posting a pic of my winter spinning set-up. Although I did not make a room specially for it. Mine is minus the TV (although I am more of a music guy anyway) and next to the washer/dryer. I hate fracking winter.

I'd like to see how your working it with your set up! Watching the tube keeps my head up, as I have a bad tendency to look down at my pedals. Plus my music selection is fairly limited. Know of any free music download sites for the Zune?

Sadly, no. I have been downloading podcasts like crazy tho'. It keeps my attention away from the spinning a little better than music.
