I have a stationary bike that I use to train on. I set it to about 11 (out of 15) for now, and make sure I maintain atleast 20 mph. I was wondering if this is not enough, or is it just right. I do this for 20 min for now, and plan to increase it as well. So what do you guys think?

Sorry, dude, but all of your posts are the most random, vague questions ever.

"Is it just right?" Um, we have absolutely no information. Is this your own road bike on a stationary trainer, or just a lifecycle-type stationary bike? Arbitrary setting numbers mean nothing, and the "speed" that a stationary bike gives you means basically nothing.

Futhermore, you don't say at all what you want to DO with this sort of training, so it's impossible to tell you what's enough.

If you have no idea where to start, read a book on cycling like Serious Cycling by Burke. Joe Friel's "Cyclists' Training Bible" is good, but hard to start from scratch with.

Apart from general aerobic conditioning, though, it's hard to get much productive road-racing type training on a gym-type stationary bike.
