I've recently started commuting to/from work, 4 miles each way, on my fixie. It's a short ride but it's alot of fun getting a ride in every day, and it sure beats sitting in traffic in a car.
Do you think I'll see any long term training or fitness benefits in this commute? I'm a triathlete biking around 130 miles a week for training (not commuting), so potentially I'm adding 40 very easy miles into the mix. I've been biking 4 years, and it's my strongest sport.
Thoughts or opinions? Thanks!
As mentioned already, any saddle time is beneficial
I also have a fixie with toe-clips, when on hills I really have to focus on elliptical pedalling, I've found it has vastly impoved my torque on my race bike.
