Anyone have any idea how doing indoor inline speed skating works on base miles?
I'm more of an inline speedskater than a biker, over the winter primarily sticking to indoor. Salt and bearings that are 1" off the ground don't mix too well...

Anyway, indoor speed is pretty specific in what muscles you use, generally high up in the quad. All your power will be coming from crossovers. You'll still be developing lots of muscles because you're supporting all your body weight as well as using them to power yourself around the track, but mebbe not specifically those you use while biking. Still a great workout though.

Outdoor speedskating, where you're covering more distance in straight lines would be better for building base miles on a bike.
