Tricks Of The Turbo

"I hate the turbo, i don't know how you can sit there, in your garage sweating away for 90minutes, How do you do it?" This was a friends comment when she asked what i was up to that evening and i declared i was going to spend the evening on the computrainer trurbo in the garage. Yes, it's sweaty, yes, it is often painful, yes, it is not scenic but it is a great training tool if you are trying to get in quality bike sessions, around work, early in the morning or in the evening, when the weather isn't great. So here are my top 3 tricks for ticking off the turbo sessions

The Vampire Ride

After 16 hours in the saddle, most of us had managed to drag ourselves to the base of the last climb: Alpe d’Huez. By that stage we had ridden 156 miles, taking in Mont Ventoux (an amazing piece of geology which you just cycle up continuously for 14 miles, and go up a vertical mile in the process), three category 2 climbs, two category 1's and a couple of cat 5’s for good measure. If that means nothing to you… it was very, very hilly.
