Creating a Stationary Ride

Use your Ride with GPS app, Garmin, or Wahoo unit to record your indoor ride and then be able to review your distance, speed, heart rate, cadence and/or power data.

Note: In order to accurately record an indoor ride, you must pair a speed sensor or utilize a smart trainer to measure the distance ridden.


When you are finished with your workout:

  • View the ride, then click the Edit link in the left side panel. This will open the ride details page.
  • Click the checkbox for “Stationary Ride?”.
  • Then click the SAVE button when you are finished.
  • Now the ride will count towards your totals, and will display your indoor metrics. Hover your mouse pointer over any of the graphs to view more info.

    Recording with the Ride with GPS app

    In order to record an indoor ride with the mobile app, you will need to set up a Bluetooth enabled Speed/Cadence sensor or Smart Trainer and take your app recording settings off of Auto-Pause.

    Under the SPEED section of the sensor pairing process, enter your wheel’s circumference in millimeters. Entering the circumference allows the app to calculate the distance you’ve pedaled.
