Ride Throughout the World from Home
With the time change and colder temperatures, trainer time is here for many of us. While the CompuTrainer arguably started the smart trainer revolution decades ago, the current crop of options is like comparing a video game on the original Atari to a X Box Series X. The courses and the realism has come leaps and bounds, as has the simulation capabilities of the trainers themselves. You can quickly load a ride in Europe or Asia complete with HD video and be riding along a scenic coastline or up and epic mountain path in no time. Likewise, if competing or group rides is your cup of tea, you can quickly join a group ride or sign up for a race most anytime – all without leaving home.
In addition to the vast leaps in video and simulation technology, the current crop of smart trainers include options like the Wahoo Climb that can simulate grade (front of the bike goes up or down if you are climbing or descending) and simulate road surfaces (TACX Neo). All of this adds up to an experience that is far more entertaining, interactive and effective than pedaling while watching old Seinfeld episodes. In this case, entertainment and engagement quite often equals motivation and motivation equals achieving goals.
