Do you ride a stationary bike when you exercise?

I ride an upright stationary bike often.

I can read and it's a nice way to, somewhat, sit still and focus for 30 minutes. I don't think I'd ever make it through the newspaper without my cycle. And when I travel, I also like to ride. And it completely annoys me that at most hotel fitness centers and health clubs, the pedal straps are missing.

Am I alone on this?

I just posted the same question on a cycling forum and I'll be curious if others share my frustration.
