Outdoor Spinning Class vs. Bike Commuting?

On my way home one night last summer I saw this spectacle for the first time ever (the spectacle continues this summer) and I just had to pause to capture the moment – more so as proof as to what I was actually seeing!

outdoor spinning class vs bike commuting?

I’ve always wanted to try a spinning class… and I think the winter time — when I’m less likely to log as many miles outside — would be the ideal time. But I’d much rather be outside enjoying an actual bike ride than spinning outside…. Every time I pass one of these classes, I just smile and shake my head. I’m sure it’s a great workout; I just hope those same class attendees aren’t beeping their car horn at me later in their urgency to get home post-workout.
