On Monday night I was spinning in my garage and staring at my garage door thinking about how boring it was. I was too lazy to lug my bike and trainer up the stairs in to my living room though, and the temperature in the garage is much more friendly for spinning sessions. All of a sudden a light bulb went off in my head. I had a spare TV just sitting in my garage that I had no idea what to do with. I also had a spare DVD player in my basement collecting dust. This weekend one of my projects was to turn my my garage into a place a little more spinning friendly. As you can see, it was kind of messy as I've just been piling my helmet and other things in a heap on the floor.
I reorganized the moving boxes on the right side of my garage to make room (yes, I've been living in my house for over two years and I have not fully unpacked yet). After all, who wants to be spinning near a garbage can? I can also park further to the right so I won't be set up so close to my car. I set up a TV stand that I picked up from Ikea on Saturday night. Setting up the stand tested my engineering skills since it came without instructions... Ah, who needs instructions anyway?I also picked up a nifty little shelving unit to hold my helmet, shoes, spare tubes, shoe covers and all the gear that had just been piled up on the floor of the garage.Right now the TV is only hooked up to the DVD player, but I should be able to run cable through, so that will be another project sometime in the future.
