Aimlessly riding a trainer can be excruciatingly boring. But specific, targeted workouts can be more effective training than many outdoor rides.
TrainerRoad picks up live power, heart rate, speed, and cadence data while you workout on your trainer. It monitors your output to give you live power targets during a structured workout.
TrainerRoad offers nearly 700 workouts, which are searchable by duration, intensity or training focus (aerobic, sweet spot, tempo, and so on). You can pick individual workouts to suit, or follow one of the many training plans that are included in the price and that specify workouts for each day.
Many workouts can be used in conjunction with videos, and most have text cues that pop up on the screen. Some of the cues are drills, such as standing up for 10 seconds, while others are reminders to keep your shoulders down and loose, etc.
With a good internet connection, a trainer and an ANT+ device, riders across the world can race each other around Zwift Island, the computer animated course of upstart company Zwift.
While the graphics are far and away the best of any multiplayer cycling videogame (compared with the other online options such as Tour de Giro and Bkool), the primary hook is the interaction with other riders.
