With the recent time and temperature change, riding outside can be a bit tricky this time of year. Weekday rides seem to fall away during the winter months and the idea of riding your trainer at home gets really old, really quick. Training indoors is all about quality. Time on the bike is compressed, so it's important to have a specific plan for each ride. Watching "Scandal," while on the bike sounds great, but let's face it, you probably aren't getting the most out of your workout. With Pedal Hard's early hours, our in house showers and bike storage, as well as our downtown location, we're uniquely positioned to get you through the holiday season without sacrificing fitness.
Pedal Hard Training Center is a 700sq ft. facility located in the downstairs level of our shop, featuring 12 CompuTrainers attached to flat screen televisions, and a separate fit room. CompuTrainers are advanced indoor trainers that allow you to attach your own personal bike. The trainers measure wattage, heart rate (with a compatible heart rate monitor), and cadence, as well as change resistance to mimic specific courses. The specificity of the CompuTrainers resistance make it ideal for very focused training. It's hard to find a 10 minute, 3% climb in Austin, let alone one without traffic.
