Cycling is a great way to get fit, meet new people, and explore new places. With technology advancing, cycling is changing, and we constantly see new gear that can help us improve the experience. Two pieces, in particular, are smart turbo trainers and power meters. These are easily accessible and give us a huge amount of metrics to help us advance to become better cyclists.
There are lots of blogs out there with lots of good (but similar) advice on how and why to get started with indoor cycling. We even have one ourselves on why you should start.

Fenella Langridg and Frederic Funk are two of the top names in Triathlon. We are psyched that they are taking part in the Triathlon Fall Fest and doubly-psyched that they found time to sit down with us and share some of their expert insight on the sport. Fenella joined us from rain-soaked England and Frederic from cold and unsunny Germany to chat and you can see Frederic in action at Triathlon Fall Fest at Wanaka on Thursday 24th and Fenella at Challenge Roth on Sunday 27th.
