Indoor cycling is a great way to stay fit when you’re limited on time, or when weather conditions get in the way of spinning down the country lanes we know and love over the summer months.

How do you start indoor cycling?

There’s several different ways you can get your pedal fix indoors: via a turbo trainer or rollers set up in your house, at a gym or taking part in a spinning class are all popular options.

If you’re pedalling away at home, there’s a range of indoor cycling apps which can help to keep you entertained and most provide structured training sessions.

With indoor cycling growing in popularity every year, there’s now plenty of opportunities to take your training further, with races available for those who seek competition. Zwift is the pioneer in indoor cycling races.

Why choose indoor cycling?

There’s many benefits of cycling indoors. Firstly, you can escape bad weather – which can be dangerous if we’re talking snow and ice levels.

Secondly, you can’t freewheel – so every second of your training time is productive in terms of fitness goals – making indoor cycling a very time efficient option.

Thirdly, indoor cycling is perfect for completing structured training sessions and intervals which may be hard to perform alongside the traffic and road furniture outside.
