Welcome to the TrainerRoad Forum!

This is a Place to Learn, Disagree and be Entertained

This is a place to talk about all things bike or triathlon related (including nutrition and weight training).
Have a question about the app, your training plan, or device? Reach out to support@trainerroad.com instead of posting here. Our support team has the best visibility and insight into your devices, workouts and adaptations, and will help get you the most efficient and effective answer to your question.

There are just a few rules.

  1. Be excellent to each other
  2. Challenge the idea, don’t attack the person
  3. Contribute Constructively
  4. Don’t break the law
  5. Keep it tidy

Be Excellent to Each Other

Speak to people like you would in person. It sounds simple but the forum can be so much more valuable if we just show each other a little kindness.


Challenge the Idea, not the Person

This builds on rule #1. The best arguments focus on the idea rather than the person who’s communicating the idea, whether it’s someone on the forum or a public figure. Let’s avoid making things personal and strive to live in the “counterargument” and above. And opinion is important! This is cycling, lots of stuff is subjective.

Contribute Constructively

Constructive debate creates a safe place for people to respectfully express their opinions and learn through the process of debate. It is an amazing thing when it works, so keep comments well-intentioned and act in good faith. If your comment only serves to create dissent or inhibit a conversation, please keep it to yourself!

Don’t Break the Law

Linking to copyrighted cycling videos is a no-no. Don’t link to those knock off frames and helmets that look cheap but could actually injure another cyclist.

Normal stuff like that, don’t be stupid.


Keep it Tidy

We’re using a Discourse forum and it has a lot of cool features. Please use the appropriate category and add tags when you post.

If you do that, it will be much easier for other users to find content in the future.

A Note On Flagging and Moderation

If you see a post you believe doesn’t follow these guidelines, flag it and a moderator will take a look. Our policy is to generally not enforce “Off-Topic” flags— good conversation goes off on tangents sometimes, and we’re ok with that.

But we will remove posts that violate the guidelines, and we do reserve the right to use our discretion in doing so. Moderators personally follow up with members whose posts are repeatedly being flagged to help them better understand the forum guidelines. And we get it— sometimes people make mistakes. This is why we use a 3 strike rule before permanently excluding anyone from the forum.
If you don’t uphold our forum rules, we’ll remove your access.

Feature Requests

Constant improvement is one of our core values, and from big features to small fixes, we’re always trying to make TrainerRoad better. A huge part of that process is user feedback—we read and consider every suggestion we receive about how to improve TrainerRoad, and if you have an idea you’d like to share, the best way is by emailing it to support@trainerroad.com.
While we do sometimes discuss details of our future roadmap on this forum, our product development priorities are always subject to change, and we can’t offer updates here on individual feature timelines or schedules.

That’s it! Enjoy the forum!

Thanks for the effort behind this. It will be a much better platform as we move forward.


“And THAT is why we need a triumphant video.” :grin:


Wow, another huge component to TrainerRoad. You all are really doing impressive work at such an incredible subscription rate. I continue to be amazed and and grateful to be a long time member. Keep up the great work and all you do for the cycling community!


Great job guys, so glad I decided to move to TR 6 months ago!


so awesome to have this forum. I was kind of turned off by facebook posts getting plastered over the walls of friends and acquaintances (I also don’t need my wife seeing how much time I spend on cycling chat! lol) . Glad us TR enthusiasts have our own playground now!


Agreed. Facebook is a hard platform to keep up with. This should be a much better repository for information.


We’re stoked to have you on board!


Just logged on for the first time this incredible. I can see this becoming a huge part of the success of TR. Thanks for adding yet another level to TrainerRoad


We’re super excited about it, too! Thanks for joining us, @bholmlate :smiley:


only just starting to poke around, but this is already AMAZING!! thanks for continuing to evolve.


Outstanding! Thanks for creating the forum!


This seem great. Thanks. I especially like easy editing [even after I’ve posted it!] and easy paragraphs.


Excellent addition! Will this replace the Facebook forum or is the plan to run both in parallel?


This. Is. Awesome. Thanks TR!


No plans to kill the FB group but we’re going to encourage everyone to move over here.


Great job :grinning:

This is great. :heart_eyes:


This is great. I’ve long wished that everyone was less reliant on FB for communications. It is an addictive timesync for me so avoid it.
