First, let’s be clear: this is not spinning.
Connect your road bike to a smart turbo trainer and watch on a screen as you outpace your fellow heat dodgers in real time. The trainer adjusts the resistance to reflect the course, so your legs will experience every digitally rendered hill IRL. There’s even a structured e-coaching plan that will take your performance up a gear.
