Does anyone here do it?
My turbo is in my cellar and there is virtually no ventilation so it gets damp during sessions.

Obviously I can get a dehumidifier but was wondering if anyone else does this and what their solutions were.

I did it when I was in Derby, but our cellar was dry lined and plastered, with a proper floor and electrics - but not dug out.
I had a dehumidifier on 24/7 down there (cost about 2p a day) that needed emptying weekly - that was without the turbo.

I hooked a fan up and put a towel down for the turbo.
It was great as zero vibrations.

Stock the cellar with wine.

Train outside.

Come home and drink mulled wine to warm you up.

I seem to recall that there was a picture in The Flying Scotsman of Graeme Obree in a damp coal cellar on a crappy old exercise bike, training for his hour attempt.

Cellar training obviously worked for him Wink
