ELITE Direto XR Trainer – Getting ready for indoor riding

It’s now October and the weather has turned cold. The rain is here more often, and soon it will snow. There is already snow in the mountains, and so I am starting to sweat more indoors from now on.

TRR Pro Advanced Collagen part 2

Starting the TRR product review, it comes in a snazzy 50ml snap cap bottle, housed inside a box of ten bottles – 3 boxes in total.
