Trainers suck that is all
I handed my trainer off to someone in Copenhagen before I moved. Best trainer-related decision I ever made! :D

    I usually prefer to use a good ergo in a local gym (mine has a Wattbike studio). This way I can usually watch Cricket, a movie, TV shows, the scenery ;) or strike up a conversation.

    When it's raining on a Saturday I will often go to the gym about an hour before a spin class, warm up by spinning at base intensity, do the class then 15-20 minute cool down. After this I'll stretch out, use the roller etc.

    I find this is great for leg speed and VO2, just remember that this is a solid 2 hours + of indoor training, so two big bidons of electrolytes and a towel are a good idea. For the warmup, I have a few TV shows or movies on my iPhone so I don't go mad.

    I honestly don't know how y'all do it.

    I was on there for maybe 20 minutes the other day, dialled in Strade Bianche on YouTube, but couldn't stand it. Arse went dead as quickly as that, legs felt heavy. Sacked it off.

    Next day the weather was better so I went out on the winter bike, still rode badly but way more enjoyable. I guess if racing was my dayjob and it mattered, I'd have a problem.  :P

    I filmed a load of handlebar cam footage last summer and that is keeping me sane this winter.

  • Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    This is making the news...

    Fitness startup Peloton files for IPO with annual revenue of $915 million
    Quote
    New York (CNN Business) Peloton, the indoor fitness startup, filed paperwork on Tuesday for an initial public offering.

    The company generated $915 million in revenue in its most recent fiscal year, ending June 30, according to its IPO prospectus. That's more than double the revenue it posted in the year prior.

    But Peloton's net losses are growing, too. The company lost $195.6 million in the most recent year, up sharply from $47.9 million in the year prior.

    Peloton, best known for its internet-connected indoor bikes and subscription cycling classes that can be streamed live or on-demand into homes, said that it has more than 511,000 ''connected fitness" subscribers, which is double the year prior. It has over 1.4 million members, which includes anyone with a Peloton account.

    Quote
    Meanwhile, Peloton competitor SoulCycle...has amassed a cult-like following for its 45-minute indoor cycling workout set to party music in a darkened studio.
    I never knew what that nonsense was. That sounds hideous.  :S

    ----------------------

    Peloton’s IPO shows the company is serving the wealthy, but not making us healthy

    Quote
    the maker of home stationary bikes and treadmills attributed its growth — more than 100% in the past year — to the “growing awareness of the benefits of exercise and physical activity.”
    Oh, ya, people are only just discovering this notion...in 2019:wut

    Quote
    The Peloton bike costs more than $2,200 for the most basic package, and that doesn’t include the monthly fees for classes. That’s far out of reach for millions of Americans, who are living paycheck to paycheck.

    “We’ve inadvertently designed a society where it’s hard to be healthy,” said Steve Downe, chief technology and strategy officer for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. “So many of the solutions aren’t available to most people.”
