inline skating is far less demanding on one's legs.
Far less? I beg to differ. What else supports your weight? Not a seat or handlebars. I found that after three years of outdoor speedskating, I was able to have a tremendous leg-up when I started cycling. On local rides, it was not too difficult to work my way up to the faster ranks of cyclists. How do you think Connie Carpenter got her gold medal? Eric Heiden? True, these are gifted athletes, but what I'm saying is that the muscle groups used are VERY similar. I can ride a century (average 20 mph) and the impact is nothing like a fast 40 miler, averaging 15 mph.
