Indoor training is commonly associated with poor weather and winter months but with the boom in fitness apps, development of indoor cycling equipment and the ever-unreliable British climate, indoor training has become more of an all year practice.
Not only has the technical evolution of turbo trainers and rollers become more affordable and easier to use, but fitness apps like Zwift help with the mental will-power required to get rolling indoors – as we all know, mental motivation can sometimes be the hardest hurdle to overcome!
