It’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.
