Indoor Training Turns Virtual with CycleOps

Indoor Training Turns Virtual with CycleOps

I'm not usually excited to ride indoors, preferring the great outdoors, but the reality is I live in central Illinois, where it gets cold in the winter, daylight is limited and so is my time.

.

Your reality may be similar.

.

If so, there's a stationary trainer that keeps you on the bike AND makes training way more fun: the CycleOps Magnus.

.

Start by clamping your bike's rear wheel to the stand. The Magnus is compatible with quick-release and thru-axle wheels. Then sync the unit to your tablet or computer--or to a smart TV via DMI cable--and you can ride anywhere in the (virtual) world.

.

Head for the hills

.

What cyclist hasn't dreamed of climbing a mountain stage of the Tour de France? I climbed the Col du Galibier and the Col d'Izoard--two of the toughest climbs in the Tour--without packing and flying a bike to Europe.

.

A trial subscription to virtual training software is included. To continue down the virtual road, subscribe to software like Rouvy or Zwift when your trial subscription ends. It's a great way to stay in shape for next spring.

.

Want to try the Magnus before you buy? Great. Drop by Bushwhacker today. We have one connected to a TV monitor for you to try. Bring your bike or ride the one we have in the stand. You'll like it.

One other thought...

.

We're riding indoors every Saturday right now. Look for information on our Facebook events page, and start your weekends off right with Robert and RJ at 7:45 a.m. There's no cost and all fitness levels are welcome.

.

Think of it as the group ride that's just your speed.

Robert is the head bicycle mechanic here inside Bushwhacker.  His knowledge of parts both past and present paired with his uncanny ability to lead you on a two-hour ride over cobbled roads, up back country hills, around corners with gravel so loose you'll swear under your breath and then at him when he darts through them with the grace and agility of a cheetah on the prowl.  At the end of said ride Robert may just let you in on a little secret, that within the terrifyingly brilliant 120 minutes spent in the saddle you never left the city he grew up in.
