Ideally I'd do 10 to 12 hours a week. For now 5 to 7 has to do.
If that's your conclusion then you're not doing it right. If all you care about is riding, then that's one thing. But if overall health, fitness and quality of life is your goal, then weight training is just as valuable as anything else. It most certainly is never a waste of time.
