HIIT with a recumbent bike

I was just wondering if this would be effective for HIIT. I have a recumbent bicycle in my apartment, which is programmable. One of the programs has a three-stage repeat setting. It starts off at a setting that is relatively easy. The second one is slightly more difficult, but the third gets much more difficult. It then rotates back to the easy setting and repeats (i.e. setting difficulty level 1-2-4-1-2-4). It is essentially like running up and down a hill. The level of difficulty for the group can be adjusted (i.e. 1-2-4 becomes 2-3-5). Also, the duration can be changed to increase or decrease the amount of time on each level. Right now I am doing 20 minutes, with 30 seconds for each level (1:30 for a set), two-three times a week.

Does this sound like a good HIIT routine?

    How long have you been doing it? it doesn't sound a bad idea. I can never get to grips with HIIT on bikes or treadmills come to that, I prefer heavy bags for that kind of thing, but it sounds as if your doing ok.
