Benefits of Indoor Cycling

We’re into month 4 of our Elite indoor training project and it’s the perfect time to examine the initial benefits and how it all fits in to the reasoning behind using an indoor trainer.

One understated benefit of interactive indoor cycle trainers, is how useful that they are when you’re training through imjury.
