NEW PATHWAY on Indoor Cycling!

Riding inside is NOT the same as outdoors.

  • How to adjust your power meter interpretation
  • When to use rollers instead of a trainer
  • Heat management and ventilation
  • Setting up your indoor cycling workout area
  • The health impacts of indoor riding
  • Two-a-day workouts
  • How to Get the Most from Zwift: How to warm up, how to draft best, why knowing the course matters, how to set up your trainer, power starts, and more
  • Advanced Zwift Race Tactics
  • Using Zwift for testing or long slow distance rides
  • 9 great workouts for indoor cycling

Nearly two-thirds of this Pathway is available free to Listener Members. To access the full Pathway and all Fast Talk Labs content, upgrade to Library Membership.

What Is a Pathway?

Fast Talk Labs Pathways™ offer new ways to explore concepts, master skills, and solve training challenges. Pathways are collections of expert sport science articles and videos dive deep into specific endurance topics. We link each story together so members always understand the why and the how.

Think of a Fast Talk Labs Pathway as a MasterClass for endurance sports. Pathways offer a comprehensive understanding of a topic from a variety of expert perspectives. Follow a Pathway and you will know the next path forward in your own training.

Each month, we release new Pathways that address key concepts, training techniques, performance analysis methods, and much more. What topics would you like us to explore in an upcoming Pathway? Let us know how Fast Talk Labs can help you! Email us at or simply reply to this Forum topic.

The intro is mentioning the difference in power numbers outdoor and indoor… Where is this covered? I just went briefly through it and couldn’t find it.
