While there was once a time when indoor training was drudgery only for the most committed racers, that time is long past. There are options out there that will help you get stronger through training, take part in competition at whatever level works for you, or even just ride. Many of the apps available will even combine different options depending on what you want on any particular day. You also have the option of riding alone or joining vast communities. Bottom line, whatever you need to help keep riding fun, there's an option.

Josh hails from the Pacific Northwest of the United States but would prefer riding through the desert than the rain. He will happily talk for hours about the minutiae of cycling tech but also has an understanding that most people just want things to work. He is a road cyclist at heart and doesn't care much if those roads are paved, dirt, or digital. Although he rarely races, if you ask him to ride from sunrise to sunset the answer will be yes.
