Free ride at end of workout?

At the end of a work out, I have the option to extend the cool down if I want. But from what I can figure out (which is limited!) the only way I can adjust how hard this is will be via the intensity adjust buttons. I guess what I am am asking here i if I do an hour workout, but feel good and have say a spare extra 20 mins I would like to free ride this at whatever power I want at the end of my workout. I assumed that if I extended the cool down in the work out this would give me this option. But what I have experienced is it just does that. It extends the cool down with cool down power. I want to basically free ride at this point at whatever power i want. Is this possible? Its a very manual process to adjust the intensity to up the Watts, which is how I currently do it. Makes throwing in a couple of sprint drills etc impossible.

Am I missing something here? Or not using the app properly?

I am using TR on a windows PC with Kickr Core on ERG mode.

Switch to resistance mode during the cooldown.


Ahhhhhh right. SO finish workout, jump into settings and switch from ERG on the Kickr to Resistance. Its that straight forward?


I believe so.

You said you’re on a Windows PC, so I think you can even skip the jump into settings:


Oh yes! I didn’t even know this existed. This is getting slicker and slicker by the minute.


I have done both methods, adjust intensity to make a target wattage and keep erg mode going and turn off erg mode and go into standard (one click on screen).

Sometimes I have those extra 20 minutes and just add time in Z2 at about 70% ftp for this I keep erg on and adjust % intensity. Sometimes free ride as it is more fun and I will do that. I will also often turn erg off to add a couple sprints to the end of my workout anything from all out 10s, 30s, and occassionally 1min efforts. Never hurts much to sprint when already fatigued after a hard session similar to a race situation.
