From bad weather to business travel to traffic safety, there are dozens of reasons why cyclists and triathletes take their rides inside. Although indoor cycling workouts offer the ultimate control over workout conditions, most inside riders don't get the most out of their trainers or spin bikes.

RIDE INSIDE offers cyclists and triathletes a smart guide to getting more fitness from every indoor cycling workout. From the world's most experienced personal cycling coach, Joe Friel, RIDE INSIDE reveals all the unique aspects of indoor riding:

* Mental aspects like motivation, focus, and enjoyment

* Changes in upper body stability, posture, and pedaling technique on a stationary bike

* Respiration, hydration, and cooling

* Inherent changes in power output

* Lower leg tension and eccentric loading from flywheel momentum

* Lower effort from lack of terrain changes, headwinds, and crosswinds

* Road-like feel

* Different shifting patterns

All these differences of indoor riding add up to a big impact when the rubber hits the road.

Drawing from the foundations of Friel's classic training guides, The Cyclist's Training Bible and The Triathlete's Training Bible, RIDE INSIDE shows how to apply smart and proven training concepts to indoor cycling. Riders will get expert guidance on the best ways to set up a trainer or smart trainer, how to modify outdoor workouts for indoor cycling, how to better monitor power and RPE, and how to use social online training platforms like Zwift to make training better and not worse.

Most critically, RIDE INSIDE shows cyclists and triathletes how to do indoor cycling workouts that actually meet their training goals instead of compromising.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Ride Inside

"In Ride Inside, Friel and Rutberg give concrete steps to take to ensure you're building fitness rather than wearing yourself out with endless miles on the trainer." -VeloNews Tech Podcast

"As coauthors of the book Ride Inside, Friel and Rutberg have examined every aspect of indoor cycling-from the equipment and training benefits to the evolution of what is fast becoming a sport in its own right." -Triathlete's Fitter & Faster podcast

"It wasn't long ago that riding inside was something most of us did only when the weather was bad, or the days too dark, or we were pressed for time. Flash forward to today and indoor cycling is quickly becoming a discipline many people focus on for its own sake. In Ride Inside, Joe Friel and Jim Rutberg explore indoor cycling and its many nuances." -Fast Talk Laboratories podcast

"Ride Inside breaks down the latest indoor training tech and offers insights on how indoor training can improve your outdoor efforts." -Road Bike Action magazine

"In the last 18 months, I have logged over 500 hours on my indoor trainer. It took me quite a long time to figure out the rules and the tools of riding inside. . . . Thanks to Joe Friel and Ride Inside, your learning curve will be much faster than mine." -Stephen Seiler, PhD, sports scientist

"Anyone who has been in triathlon or cycling since the mid-'90s probably knows the name Joe Friel or his books. . . . His latest book is so on the pulse. Ride Inside is your training bible for indoor cycling." -Consummate Athlete Podcast
