Tried two bikes. This was the first with full computer facilities that allowed you to race down a track and severely injure yourself without pain! Just could not get on with this contraption at all so switched to a more simpler model that matched my brain.
A good strategy was to ignore the screen, at your peril and look at the sea. Very relaxing. Covered 12 miles in all over two visits, and with the level ramped up, it was not a bad workout.
