A Look Inside My Head…Yikes!

My approach to indoor cycling has always been to bring the qualities of cycling outdoors into the indoor cycling studio.  On one hand, there are the general qualities of fitness and conditioning that everyone enjoys, cyclist or not. However, there are definitely attributes of training and riding that appeal specifically to those that enjoy riding outdoors. I thought I’d have a little fun and give you a glimpse into what goes on in my head when I design an indoor ride. OK, maybe “fun” was not the right word and the thought of entering my head may have sent your mouse uncontrollably toward the “back” button. Regardless, here is taste of what goes on during an outdoor group ride and how it translates to almost every indoor ride I create (with the exception of race days).

Meet Up and Warm-Up


  1. Great stuff Tom. I now have a plan for indoor as well as outdoor!

    1. Thanks Robert. It is a good plan. Sometimes it is hard to find other outdoor riders who will follow it with you. Only those interested in training properly 🙂

  2. Something is scaring me…were we separated at birth?
    *Cos* what goes on in your head sure makes sense to me… 😀 😀

    1. Richard, I agree with you. We were separated to spare others of the damage we would do together 😉
