Since the start of the 2020 Pandemic, many people around the world were not able to go for a bike ride with their friends. While I'm not a competitive rider, the primary reason I'm out there is the social fun, a few high fives, some solid exercise and a post ride beer. No matter if it's the mountain bike, a gravel route or just ripping around town on a single speed it's the fun of seeing friends and sharing an experience that almost all of us can enjoy. Exercise and socializing are necessary parts of day-to-day life.
What many people soon discovered and enjoyed is the flexibility that an indoor bike trainer provides, especially in inclement weather or when it gets dark earlier in the day during the fall and winter months. A bonus is having the technology to share bike rides in the virtual world of Zwift, an app that connects with a compatible bike trainer's Bluetooth and ant+ and lets you ride, train, race and chat from the comfort of your own home.
