Ha! I bought a Cyclops smart trainer 2 years ago hoping I could get motivated to ride indoors. Set the everything up and it sat in the basement until my wife made me take it down to make room for Xmas.
My outdoor ride season is very schizophrenic. Can ride here in Canada from mid April to mid October. Take 3 weeks off until we go to AZ first week in November. Ride there for 5 weeks. Come home for Xmas. Take about 7 weeks off until we go back to AZ first week in February. We like to travel in January as we have to watch our number of days in US. This year is all screwed up with the craziness in the world right now. We had to come back to Canada mid March and I rode for first time since then last Friday. Rode Sunday and will go out tomorrow as I hope to do every second day.
Of course Cyclops is now re-branded Saris. Gotta say, like you I prefer the great outdoors. However along with my Snooker Table, I don't know how I would manage another eight weeks of having to isolate because of my condition. The Saris has really helped out. Not to improve, but maintain fitness levels (I don't go that hard on it) I've recorded almost 2000 miles using it, since mid January. BTW, your travelling arrangements are making me dizzy. And this is from someone who spent most of my working life in airports and planes.
