Indoor cycling - for kids

Um, er, not sure about this one. Although the intentions seem in the
right place and you could have a roller derby and/or training session
AND also tire out the kiddies all at the sametime. :p

Indoor cycling: now for kids

Your kid can now join you on your indoor training session. Or is this
junior trainer an indication that many parents won't let their sprogs
cycle in the real world?

The junior indoor trainer is available from child product specialist,
The Kids Window of London. It's said to be suitable for children aged
three to nine.

"Introduced in time for Christmas, the bikes are the latest in a series
of fitness products, such as trampolines and treadmills, we're promoting
to encourage children away from their computer games and into healthier
pursuits," said Jason Lewis, director of The Kids Window.

The bike ships with an-board computer to measure time elapsed, distance
pedalled and the amount of energy used.

"Although kids used to play outside until dark, today's children
regularly stay indoors for reasons including safety and convenience,"
said Lewis.

The bike costs 79.99.

So, put the nippers in front of the telly and only turn on CBBC while
the kids are pedalling.

how is staying indoors for exercise convenient? sounds boring as bat
sh*t to me.

Mine is "in case of emergency" e.g. broken collarbone or wet
weather. Haven't used it for a long time...

Raining, winter, you have 5 x 10 min E3 intervals to do and you don't
knock off work 'til 6pm?

It's not fun, but it's sometimes useful. I run a spin class (we wind
up this Tues!) and quite a few people come along. Not sure kids would
benefit much from it though...

Just got off mine. A quality workout of intervals at a time of day where
I can ride in peak hour on the roads, or masses of dogs and peds on the
bike trail. I wouldn't want to ride on it for more than 45 mins though.

Oy! You know better than that!

I've got a trainer. One day I'll get around to putting a bike in it.
