What does this look like to you? A medieval implement of torture? A kinky sex device?
Well, if when I say "torture" you think of exercise, and when I say "sex" you think of sweat then You're Right!!!
It's a bike roller - like a treadmill for a bike. Unlike the triangle kind of one that holds up the back end of a bike, on the rollers you are much more involved in maintaining a straight & upright position. Trust me, if you thought that you knew how to ride a bike I can guarantee you that doing it on rollers will teach you a new thing or two!! I have numerous bruises to prove it. I've improved a lot over the last few days but it still requires all of my focus not to stray too close to an edge. I ride close to a wall so that I have something to grab on to if I need to steady myself & get straight again without having to stop and reset myself.
Here is the start of Vivacious. I know, I'll try to take a picture against a better background - that brown sheet isn't doing much for the visibility of the lace pattern.
