Indoor cycling training has been changed forever since the introduction of Zwift. For those of you who are unaware, Zwift is an online platform for “virtual” riding and training. It is set in a variety of places, from the London and Richmond UCI World Championships courses to an island in the south pacific known as “Watopia.” Wherever you end up riding, you'll be thrown together with thousands of other cyclists from around the world. It only takes a few cheap pieces of technology to interface with the program. Once connected, each cyclist can pedal on their own or join friends from around the world in a virtual training environment.
Nobody has to worry about bad weather, traffic, flat tires (hopefully!) or wearing the right clothing. Everything is accomplished from your own trainer in your own home.
