Not sure where to post this, but as a new member I just wanted to say hello.
I have been reading here for a bit, haven’t yet signed up to use TR, and have a lot of questions (that I’ll try to search for before asking).
I’m an older, fatter, outofshaper sort of guy who loves road cycling. I finally picked up a new bike a couple of months ago after years being off one. I’ve been trying a few of the current apps with my trainer, and have become interested in TR. I liked Big-Z at first but it is losing its novelty. I have been using RGT more frequently and like it quite a bit, mostly riding workouts imported from TrainingPeaks. I hope they manage to be successful, as they are doing good stuff. I haven’t taken to any of the ‘virtual rider over real footage’ options - feels weird-ish (pardon my overly technical terminology).
I ride for fun, but I would also like to have some structured fitness. I don’t intend to race, but I would like eventually to try some longer rides and famous climbs, or even LBS group rides that I can’t hang with today (I can’t keep up with even the slow no-drop groups - pathetic, but it’s where I’m at for now).
For a while I suppose I’d just be concentrating on general fitness, weight loss, endurance basics. As far as I can tell, TR has me covered here, and it’s not just for the racers…correct?
This looks like a great community, so thanks for having me.
