Free ride + Erg mode on Android

Is there a way to do a “free ride” type ride where you can just choose the wattage as you go?
It seems like it’s something that would be there but I’m not seeing it.

As long as you turn off erg mode any workout can be a “free ride”. Just choose something like Pettit or Baxter as a starting point and then ride at whatever power you want… Or create your own workout in the Workout Creator.

My issue is that when I turn off erg mode, even with the resistance set to “None”, I find the resistance is too high and I have to be in an easier gear than I would like. (I don’t like the feel of low-inertia riding on a trainer).
I’m using a Saris Hammer H3 (It’s my first start trainer and just started using it 2 days ago so it’s possible I’m misunderstanding some things)

You could start with Lazy Mountain -1, adjust the Workout Intensity to hit your target wattage, and use the Extend feature to make the 1 hour ride as long as you need.

That’s the easiest way I can think of without making a custom workout.

Since you are new to a smart trainer, make sure to watch this. ERG mode is often misunderstood in the beginning, and this video helps a bunch.

Well if you have erg mode on then you’re not really in a “free ride”. You might have to think more about what you’re really wanting to do…
