Bicycle riding is a quintessential example of muscle memory, which is why we have common phrases such as "it’s just like riding a bike" and "his basal ganglia to primary motor connections are just like a cyclist’s." Get back on the banana seat with today’s Groupon: for $37, you get three cycling-training sessions at Revolutionary Velo-Watts in Clifton Park (a $75 value).
Revolutionary Velo-Watts’ CompuTrainer is a microprocessor-controlled indoor ergometer and trainer that refines riding styles to boost racing performance. Bikers of all abilities can bring their two-wheelers in to mount on the virtual tutor’s stationary wheels, allowing for immediate familiarity with their equipment while hooked up to the machine. The video software simulates famous courses that relate to trainee’s desired goals—the Lake Placid or Wisconsin Ironman for a triathlete, the Tour de France for a mountain racer, or downtown San Francisco for a motivated paperboy. While pedaling in place, data is generated showing heart rates, speed, wattage, and number of wheelies popped. After the workout, cyclists can take advantage of shower facilities or squeegee their sweat into a mason jar for a delightful memento.
