CYCLE TRAINING. I had my first training session with the CycleOps this evening. With Christmas-gift money I purchased a used CycleOps trainer through e-Bay. The back wheel of my Cannondale road bike is set into the sleek trainer. An adjustable magneto provides resistance to simulate a road ride. At A-1 Cyclery, I got a Carmichael Training Systems DVD for criterium training. The video coached me through an hour-long spin that left me huffing, puffing, sweating, and sore. Perfect!
