 Comparing indoor totals
9 days indoor effort on "The Adventure of the Seas" Some memorable 1/2 hour spins while the cruise ship maneuvered into dock position on multiple days. First in Boston then Bar Harbor, Portland (in Portland the ship anchored away from the port and "tendered" passengers in to the port), Halifax, St Johns, and finally back to Cape Liberty

Seeing the difference in recorded effort between stationary bikes(my schwinn and the lifestyle machines onboard ship), makes me wonder and question which machines software was more accurate in calculating effort...

On board the ship, the stationary 'bents were stingy on the mileage and generous on the caloric burn. While my Schwinn is generous on the mileage and stingy on the caloric burn.

I was spinning every morning while on the cruise ship Adventure of the Seas. Many mornings the ship was performing a docking procedure at the various ports including Boston, Bar harbor, Halifax, and St. John's.

Watching as the ship moved into a docking berth was a very slow and gentle operation. Spinning felt like my effort was moving the ship into port and facilitating the procedure.
