I have summoned the courage to ask a few questions despite my unpopular approach to (indoor) cycling on the turbo-trainer.

1) good pedal technique, how can I tell if I am being efficient? Are there simple rules to follow - I am conscious of keeping my hips/pelvis stable.
2) my ankles get sore after about 20 minutes, I don't use cleats - is that why?
3) likewise my elbows - is that normal, or is it because I am tilted forward slightly and don't move around much?

Got to say though, its far less painful than running and with the heart rate monitor I know I am doing 1500 cals in the aerobic zone. I am in pie credit!

Sore ankles could be down to poor foot position on the pedals, try to aim to get the ball of your foot over the axle of the pedal.

Elbows, do you have a riser block under the front wheel? If not then get something to raise the front to the same height as the back

Obviously I'm not matching last year's mileage, but I was pleased to note yesterday that I've ridden over 1,000 miles in 2018.

That’s quite a lot considering the weather - I’ve done about half that.

I wish I'd kept a proper check on the mileage from when I got the bike. But i reckon it must be between 25,000 and 30,000.

First clipless pedal topple over in years today. To be fair, it was because the cleat in the shoe had worked loose, so was rotating with my foot and not unclipping.

I managed to get the other foot out, but I'm so programmed to always unclipping my left foot first that I still lost my balance. All very gentle and I was unhurt.
