In winter, when there is snow on the roads and cycling is not the most pleasant or safest thing to do, many people take their trainers out of the wardrobe. There are, however, people who use the trainer even in summer or spring. Can they register their rides in Activy?
The answer is: not yet.
A large part of Activy's mission is to encourage people to cycle outdoors, change their habits and switch from cars to bicycles. A large part of our application is the possibility of recording the route with the help of GPS. Unfortunately, riding on a trainer does not include such data.
Saving routes from the trainer exposes us to new ways of bending the rules and recording activities not always cycling. Due to the lack of appropriate systems detecting incorrect journeys on the trainer and to protect our users we do not allow to record such activities.
In summer, spring, autumn and even winter we encourage everyone to ride outdoors. Many studies have shown that this improves not only form but also health and well-being.
