The key thing is finding a way to keep cool in the summer - I have a stationary bicycle as well but haven't used it in ages because it's tucked out of the way, and being out of the way means there's not much air circulation. On a real bike the harder you push it the more wind resistance you face, which helps keep you cool. On a stationary bike the same power gets you a higher notional speed because the air resistance isn't there, but it also means you get very hot very fast, which isn't much fun.
      Have you thought about putting a floor fan in front of you when you cycle? That's what I do when I use my bike that is hooked up to a trainer. It really helps.

      I tried it, I need more air.

      Of course another thing that doesn't help is that on the ground the harder I pedal the faster I go, which means the more air I get. The stationary bike turns the extra effort into the equivalent of a bigger hill rather than a higher gear - when I'm working hard to get up a hill I have trouble with overheating as well. It's just that I don't care if I'm pouring sweat if it drips on the ground; dripping onto my floor isn't as good.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.
