Training in Wisconsin during December?

The last time we rode our bikes outdoors was more than a month ago, November 6 , and that was in the Florida Keys.  All our bicycle training has been in the basement on rollers, which is the definition of boring.  Thankfully we have a supply of recorded movies, although limited it helps to get lost in a good plot.  Our supply of good movies is dwindling - we need another free weekend of HBO or Showtime.

Even though it is boring, training is a requirement to have an enjoyable ride.  My plan is to ride for two hours at least five days a week with one long ride per week (three hours or more).  So far, so good, as today marked my ninth consecutive day in the saddle, as I prepare for a two week break to rest mind and body.

The forecast is calling for temperatures approaching 50 degrees this weekend, so I may be able to get one more ride outside before March.
