Quarantine? 10 videos to watch on the reel.
Faced with the Coronavirus and the anomalous situation that we are experiencing, each community hurts its own. Cyclists, like the rest of the country's athletes, are obliged, by law and citizen responsibility, to stay at home. The dreaded confinement has arrived and this implies that the cycling rollers they start to smoke.
Home training is the only viable option right now so you don't lose shape. The rollers, which previously seemed like a tool sent by the devil, are now the only salvation for cyclists. The bicycles, rollers, exercise bikes and virtual cycling simulators They are quoted at a gold price. The social alarm seems to have no end and Wallapop begins to sell second-hand rollers more expensive than new ones.
Despite the arrival of virtual simulators as fun as the application Zwift, Roller training is still pretty boring. The minutes last forever and the initial motivation begins to decline at the rate of vertigo.
To entertain all this and prevent indoor cycling from becoming mental torture, I have compiled 10 interesting videos to see the roll.
Drawing on history, memories and professional knowledge, I have carefully selected 10 essential videos so that the cycling community can better cope with this process.
Do you have any other recommendations? I invite you to share it in the messages. Together stronger, together further! #I stay at home.
By the way. Commercial establishments have closed, but online shopping and transport companies continue to operate normally. If you are climbing the walls and want to buy a roller at all costs, I invite you to visit the special post "best rollers for cycling"
