Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there is no such thing as spot reducing. Doing more ab work will not make the fat shrink off your stomach. Just as doing more curls will not make the fat on your arms disappear. The fact is your love handles will shrink as your overall bodyfat is reduced. Try to do 3 sets of 6 repetitions (to failure) with your weights. This will help you build the muscle that helps burn even more calories. Do core building exercises like squats and deadlifts because that is where you can build the most muscle. Include cardio (you may want to look into High Intensity Interval Training(HIIT) to help burn the fat also. You can incorporate your bike into your cardio as either the primary or a secondary option.
