Cold weather bicycle training options

As the temperature starts to drop over the next few weeks, it’s time to think about how you are going to stay in shape as ice and snow starts to accumulate. Do you store you your bike away and renew your membership to the gym? Dig your trainer out of storage and set up your bike in the living room?  Or, do you go to a bike shop that offers a weekly training program, using state-of-the-art equipment and a knowledgeable instructor to hone your skills while keeping you motivated through the winter?

If your interest peaked with the third training option above, we found a bike shop in Mendota Heights, Minn. to check out, or to use as a comparison for a shop closer to where you live. According to Tom, at One Ten Cycles, “we are going to be having an indoor trainer class on Saturdays starting in November. All a rider needs to do is bring his or her bike and cell phone. We have Kurt Kinetic “Smart” Trainers, in a group setting that actually tracks your power, cadence, speed and distance. Plus, our classes are run by Jessica Kessler, who has been teaching indoor cycling/spin classes for over 12 years.”

Signing up for a weekly SMART Trainer series at a local bike shop will ensure that you not only maintain your baseline, but also improve your confidence level.

    There is a whole world outdoors to be explored, why go indoors? Mount studded tires, dress for the weather and go…granted it is not for everybody, but a lot more could ride year-round than do. There are a lot of great options for equipment with the advent of fat bikes if you want to go that direction.
