Congratulations, you're so courageous! I ride outdoors, but I limit it to the weekends in the morning when the roads are quiet (use trainer at night). Have you read the pain cave threads? I'm hardly alone in my logic. I agree with you that we shouldn't pander to pernicious drivers and back woods hillbillies...but for you to dismiss the efficacy of using a trainer as both a vehicle for safety and convenience, is a little douchey!
I didn't dismiss the efficacy of the trainer as a training tool. It's perfectly great for people who make "pain caves" for convenient or because they enjoy riding indoors. I'm merely countering your initial assertions that it's "word war 3" or that people who ride outdoors need to "wake up."
Can we continue this conversation without you calling me things like "douche" and "hipster?" Or should we leave it at that?
