After living with up to three other dudes the past few years, I got sick of having to shuffle my shit to the kitchen, ask if theyre bothered by the noise, feel like a jackass putting on my tights and ballerina shoes etc etc..

I moved out. Rollers at midnight? sure. Rollers at 6am? no problem.

Ride the trainer. You might feel like a jerk is this guy is really dying, but hey, youve got a training schedule to stick to.

Tell him to confine to his room or your can ride by a window and keep it slightly open for fresh air. But I would ride. Ride or not you still live with this guy and if you are going to get sick you will probably get sick off the trainer anyway.

Are you worried about upsetting him or getting ill? i think if it were me I would want people around to stick to their routine. I'd definately get some fresh air in though (generally) just to avoid getting ill as your immune system gets rocked by your session. Incidently - I live alone.

I'd drag your bike and trainer to the laundry room or laundromat. (I met an incredible girl at a laundromat in Truckee this way).

It's warm.

It gets you away from the sickie.

You get to clean all that coodied stuff your roomie sneezed on. (A load for the black crap, a load for the white stuff, a load for the fuzzy stuff: three loads, at least 45 min).

I find staring at the dryer is mesmerizing and conducive to cycling (I think the cadence on my laundry rooms dryer is 100 rpm).

Any women that show up probably will ask. If they don't your can offer an apology for any inconvenience to them. You get to explain how you are helping your sick roomie (by doing the laundry and giving them peace and quiet to recover by keeping away) and get credit for being a dedicated, disciplined athlete. They probably never saw a trainer in their life and the bike probably looks cool too.
