Give me coffee and no one gets hurt!

Free TrainerRoad!

trainerroadlogoIt’s no surprise to any of my readers that I’m a big fan of TrainerRoad. I’m using it for the second year during the winter to get stronger for the spring, instead of having to suffer for a month or so before you get your aerobic system back in shape.

Anyway, TrainerRoad has given me 2 free months of their service that I can give to my fellow cyclists. So if any of my dedicated readers out there (all 3 of you, lol) would like to give it a shot drop me a comment and I’ll send along the invite for one free month.

Not sure you have the right equipment? All you really need is a “dumb” trainer along with a speed sensor. Heart rate and cadence sensors are optional but recommended. If you have a smart trainer like a Wahoo KICKR then that’s even better but not necessary. If your sensors are bluetooth capable then you should be able to use your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android) or your PC/Mac if it supports bluetooth.  But if your sensors are ANT+ then you’ll need a USB dongle for your PC/Mac.

Here is the “Getting Started” page which describes everything much better than I could: https://www.trainerroad.com/getting-started

Any questions feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer, but this is a great way to give structured training a shot. It has given me motivation to ride on the trainer and I can’t wait to workout again.

  1. A bit of an old post, but do you still have the free trainer road codes/vouchers?
    Thanks

    Hello there! I’m quite new to this kind of training and I’m looking at starting up very soon; the ANT+ dongle is in the post! Could you share the 2-month code with me, please?

    • Hi Kristian. I’ll send over the code in a bit, but it’s only for one free month. They gave me 2 months to give away, but it’s only one month per invite.

        Hi, Jason. Awesome, thank you! I realised just after I wrote my comment that you said 2 x 1 month, poorly timed observation.

        I really appreciate it, proper structured training is just around the corner! Do you know when the code runs out? I anticipate the ANT+ dongle to come soon and I don’t want to lose myself any days…

        • No worries. I don’t think there is a time limit, just accept the invite when you are ready. I find the structure really beneficial, hopefully you will too.

  3. Hi,

    Just wondering if any of the free months are sill available?

  4. Hey there, was checking out Trainerroad, allready have a month subscription, just to try it out. The personalised trainigplans seem to be really good to work to the 2017 season. Would like to get a free month code, if you still have any.

    P.S: I like your site and content, keep going on!

  5. Hi,

    I’m keen to give trainerroad a go, do you have any of the trials left?

  6. Hello there. Probably too late but would you by any chance still have a free month to give away for TrainerRoad? Many thanks in advance

  7. Maybe finished at this stage, but any trials left ?

  8. Cheers!

  10. Anymore codes still available? I’m new and still trying to decide between TR and ZWIFT. Thanks

    • Sorry, I have no more referrals available right now. I use both Zwift and TR. Zwift for racing, group and “free” rides and TR for serious structured training.
