Can somone explain the theory behind this...I've never heard of riding with your eyes closed...You'd think this would be the exact thing you would not do. Instead, you should practice riding your trainer with your head up, looking ahead, and eyes wide open! You shouldn't practice bad habits like riding with your eyes closed on a trainer.
When you clean the oven you have to put your head in some time!..... no one would think of doing it while the oven is on I hope ?, I guess its a question of commensense.
I personally don't have any trouble keeping my eyes open when I'm out cycling
I'm guessing but it is probably a suggestion to aid concentration and focusing the mind. Competitive sports scientists recognise the power of focusing the mind, like in time trialing for instance. Its a major part of sports coaching these days at Bath University for instance one of the top Europe coaching schools
