Even then my RPMs are between 120-130 on the flats, 90s on the middle and 70-80 on the max uphill.
I played with the custom feature and discovered one can REALLY crank up the resistance to a level where standing climbs "as if" one is on a spinning bike can be done. Have to start doing that more often soon!

Sorry for the confusion, I know it is hard to track miles on a bike when it is on a trainer or a spinning bike so for the challenge sake I was thinking for every 15 minutes your spinning that will equal one mile. for example I was on my bike this morning spinning it was 20 minutes so that is one mile the other day I was on 30 minutes so that is 2 miles hope that helps
I'm thinking it's more than a mile per 15 minutes. I do computraining which is similar (possibly higher intensity, but I've done both and I don't see it as that much more intense) and I put on 18 miles in an hour.
Sounds like a great challenge for winter though! :) But please explain the mile. Maybe this is what you are coming up with for the challenges sake and not a true conversion? I'd like to hop on but need to know how to post the goal. Thanks...
Welcome to the Winter Spinning Challenge, use this forum to post your results. for every 15 minutes of spinning, will equal 1 mile you can post your results daily or weekly let's see how much miles we can rack up
