The other approach you could take is to move to London. There are traffic lights every 50-100 meters, and the air quality is somewhat suspect  ???  (although it's apparently the best it's been in over 100 years). So what you end up with is oxygen deprivation, combined with forced intervals. And traffic swerving at you, so as to keep your heart-rate up. That, added with the glad-wrap mentioned above (which would have the advantage of being a rather effective windbreak), would mean that you would lose many kg, while also increasing your Vo2max. The only other addition I would suggest is holes in the plastic wrap around your feet, so that the sweat has somewhere to drain to...

Roadies have recently hit on the idea of using unemployed immigrants to help improve training.

The idea is that you full a panel van with immigrants and drive along as "team support" - just before a gruelling hill climb the van pulls up beside the roadie and team doctor enacts a blood transfusion on the fly between the immigrants and the roadie using 4 metres of clear plastic tubing.

The advantage is that the roadie now has lots of fresh peppy immigrant blood with extra oxygen and garlic, and can tackle the hill climb.

This is why many teams have 150+ members for 8 riders. Most of them called Abdul and with job roles such as "Portable Blood Bank" err... "Assistant Assistant Trainer"
