New Chapter in Life

Early this year, I have kick-started cycle training with my newly installed CycleOps Magnus smart trainer. One of the simplest and cost-effective setups that I had discussed was using the built-in Planned Workout feature of my Wahoo ELEMNT bike computer.

At that time, I had observed that the “Route” mode of trainer control provided by the Wahoo ELEMNT was not functioning. The trainer resistance did not reflect the actual elevation profile of the loaded route.

The case was reported to Wahoo and I finally received their reply in mid-July on fixing the error.

Sounded great !

Fit Recovery

I recently read an article over at in which the author supports the conclusion that the lowly turbo trainer is the best way to get fit. Forgive me if I don’t jump on the CycleOps M2 right off the bat… even if the author generally makes some good points. It’s safer, yep, especially in […]

Winter is not quite here, yet there are blasts of cool days followed by warmer days and yet the days themselves are shorter.
