When the weather outside is less than ideal or when you must train indoors on rollers or a stationary bike, Premium members can still have stationary rides count toward their Ride with GPS career totals.
Use the mobile app for iPhone and Android, or your Garmin unit to record your ride to get the moving time, heart rate, speed, candence and/or power data, and we’ll track it with the rest of your rides.
View the ride, then click the Edit link in the right side panel. This will open the ride details page.
Then click the SAVE button when you are finished.
Now the ride will count towards your totals but not have a map associated with it.
You have a set of rollers or trainer that you want to track the miles it was used.
Here’s an example of my trainer setup as a piece of gear and a stationary ride associated with it.
Recording with the app
To get distances recorded in the mobile app while using a trainer, I set up a Bluetooth Speed/Cadence sensor.
Entering the circumference allows the app to calculate the distance you’ve pedaled.
Give the stationary ride a name.
Select the Stationary Trainer from my gear list.
Tap SAVE to finish.
- Will I lose my map if I save a ride as a stationary ride?
- Even if you save a ride as stationary, the map is preserved. Just uncheck the box and click the SAVE button to view your map again.
- Why aren’t the miles of my trainer rides included in my career totals?
- Your miles aren’t included if you set up your gear with the “exclude totals” boxed checked. Uncheck the “exclude from totals” box in your gear details to have the distances count again.
