    It reminds me of many other things that I was enthused about in January, which became clothes racks by March. Nordic Track comes to mind immediately.

    A friend of mine who is really into spin classes told me that she downloaded there app for $14 bucks a month and uses her home bike setup with her bike and Kickr. Not for me but she likes it.

    I donít think this will ever make much sense to cyclists like us that ride outside. We have the likes of Zwift and Trainer Road as our version of this guilty ďpleasure,Ē but at least ours comes with an actual nice bike that you can ride outside.

    Seriously, my goal will never be indoor riding. I mostly despise it and only do it out of necessity on horrible weather days or due to a full schedule during periods of the year when there isnít much daylight after work. For the record, you can get a pretty nice road/gravel bike and a top of the line trainer for the price of one of these things and Zwift is like 1/3 the price of their classes.

    Take all of that for what itís worth because I am clearly biased though. Thereíre are definitely folks in the world that love spin classes and stuff like this and have no desire to ride an actual road or gravel bike outdoors with other humans in person regularly for whatever reason. Some peeps canít get enough of this whole virtual thing I guess.
    Every climb has its end, for verily with difficulty there is relief...

    Peloton is a fad.

    Actual riding outside is not a fad.
