Indoor cycling is not an entire replacement of your outdoor cycle adventure. However, it is a great home workout that provides many benefits.
1. It is Time Efficient
If you do not have the luxury of time, cycling over 25 hours a week to clock in your training, indoor cycling can be considered a greater alternative or a supplement workout for your routine. With indoor cycling, you skipped the step of fretting over what outfit are you going to wear for this cycling session. Instead, you get to jump right on to your trainer and spend quality time actually pedalling on the "road".
Indoor cycling is also a great workout for those who have kids, and simply do not have the time to ride many hours on the road. You can set up your bike trainer even at your kids playroom!

2. It's targeted to your goals
Controlled and targeted training are benefits of indoor cycling. With bike trainer and cycling programme such as ZWIFT (we offer free membership with every rental :P), it allows you to ride based on your calibrated training zones and resistance. You might even find the ride easier as you get to ride through the snowy mountains in various parts of the world!

3. Get Smart
With the latest Smart Trainer (https://www.spinout.com.sg/schedule.html), it is integrated with power meters that you can take your training to the next level. When combined with cycling apps like ZWIFT, it provides highly accurate and realistic training environment for cyclist of all levels.

4. It's fun and really convenient!
While many cyclist much prefer to take their cycling outdoors, many would be disappointed by bad weather conditions.
If you're one of those "never-missing-a-training-session" kinda person, you would definitely benefit from having a trainer setup ready at home.
Raining? Never an excuse to stop your planned training session. Simply gather your cycling mates and take your workout to ZWIFT!
