Morning exercisers tend to be the most successful in sticking to their workouts (fewer distractions at that time of day!), but a good workout schedule is the one that works for you and your family.
Consider speakers and audio inputs if you want to listen to your own music while you ride. If you are going to watch TV while you ride, be sure you’ll have a clear view of the screen. You may want an extra set of speakers.
Placing your bike in the bedroom might work great if you'll be using it mid-morning, but not so great if you need to sweat before your partner is out of bed. Maybe even consider an unusual placement, such as an unused corner of the kitchen or dining room, if you want to be closer to your family. You might be able to exercise while the kids do homework or your spouse prepares dinner, and you won’t miss any of the family check-ins and conversations.
