Day 4. 57 miles Saint Omer to Saint Brevin. I missed out going through Nantes cos my b&b owner told me it was easy to get lost as some of the signage has been removed/turned round!!
Good day, I’m now right on the Atlantic coast! The hotel I’m staying in is a Vegas wannabe…but I won 135 Euro in the casino, so 1:0 casinobay!!

This was the screen as it counted up one of my bonus wins


#5391

sounds about right.

in summary: :thinking:


#5392

BEERS ARE ON CASINOBABES!


#5393

should i buy a turbo trainer? anyone here use one?

what kind should i get etc


#5394

I want one too.

Something not very £££ which connects to Zwift.


#5395

ive got one for winter, it doesn’t connect to zwift or anything, just have music playing and use time/heart rate zones etc


#5396

Smart trainers: Tacx Vortex here. Mid-range, skewer style, does the job perfectly. Might need yaself an ANT+ USB dongle but they’re like a tenner anyway.


#5397

how loud is it? i’m in a second floor flat, will everyone want to kill me?


#5398

What’s the minimum you can spend on a decent one


#5399

if you want a smart one (can connect to Zwift / [other virtual training platforms are available], this guide seems to sum it up:

Cheapest Tacx one on there is £250.


#5400

Not massively loud, can hear a drone downstairs but if the telly’s on its barely noticeable. More the grunting and swearing tbh.


#5401

Anyone tell me why this is so cheap when it connects to Zwift etc?

(edit: @japes, all the reviews say this is super quiet)


#5402

don’t bother just get a thicker coat :+1:


#5403

afaik any trainer can connect to zwift as long as you’ve got speed / cadence on the bike

not all of them are smart trainers though. that one isn’t.
