Equipment: Indoor Cycling Bike

Because of the typically heavy framework of an indoor cycling bike, riders seldom need to focus on balance. This ride is about stability and balance. Designed, in part, for our SSoD members who use Stationary Trainers, we are riding with the intention of maintaining steady, consistent power as we alternate foot speeds. Whether we are doing 4-count pulses, 20 second breakaways, or one minute presses, staying centered and concentrating on symmetrical push/pull foot strokes will allow you to ride harder and more efficiently. 95% of this ride is in the saddle, so get comfortable and let’s crush this route.
