I had some geeky fun with my Rouvy App on my iPad and my Tacx Flux trainer.

Rouvy will use a virtual route as a training session and will provide road routes from numerous locations famous for cycling. In addition, the App allows a route to be uploaded from Garmin and other GPS powered devices. I uploaded several routes I had personality ridden in 2017. These included gravel event rides with dozens of steep climbs.

When using the GPS routes on Rouvy while training, the route is displayed on a map and the slope is displayed in percent along with heart-rate, speed, power in watts and distance.

These features really make the time on the trainer entertaining and my fitness is improving during winter time.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
