I'm not sure how my sessions compare, but my indoor bike intervals are much shorter than i'm seeing above, i generally do 50 minutes on the indoor bike trainer:
10 min warm up at recovery resistance, then;
95-105rpm x 1 minute at high resistance (by the last 10 minutes i'm generally above 100rpm the entire time)
80-85rpm x 1 minute at recovery resistance
so just 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy, the hard minute by the end i'm getting stuffed, then i recover and do it again, the recoveries seem to get shorter, and the higher resistance parts longer.

I also try to do a 10 minute row every second day to give my back a little warm up, and some pilates once a week, and leg weights once twice a week. Tuesday seems to be the best day for weights, as i'm recovered then by the weekend when i want to do a decent ride.
