Haiku to Static Trainers:

By Cycling Dad:

I promised that I would share my thoughts on static trainers with you one of these days. Upon pondering for a while, I have made the decision to use the Japanese Haiku as a means of expression. You can fill the gaps with your own emotions towards spending time on static trainers, including spinning bikes…

Traditional (5-7-5):

Sweat dripping nimbly.
Tire tormented by steel.
Taking me nowhere.

Punk-rock version:

Sweat dripping nimbly.
Tire tormented by a roll of steel.
Squeezing my tire.
Squeezing my balls.
Taking me nowhere.
Will this be forever?

Thank you.

P.S. Despite all the nagging, I want to let the world know that I managed to do one hour on the trainer last Sunday after returning from Zurich and anotherĀ one this morning. Trying to get used to the idea that I will have to spend a certain part of my winter training on this contraption.
