It’s starting to turn from spring to summer and my indoor training rides are getting on the steamy side. I live in the MidWest US where both humidity and temperature are factors in the summer. My trainer setup is in a basement bedroom ~12’ x 8’ and contains an egress window. I open the window if the temp is cool enough outside. I am blasted by a Dyson Pure Cool fan plus a large floor fan during my workouts. I drink about twice as much water during workouts inside versus out.
Overall I’m naturally warm all the time and sweat easily. My body heat generated during workouts quickly heats the room up to the point where the fans aren’t enough to keep me cool. Being in the basement doesn’t help as it’s naturally more humid. I end up sweating a ridiculous amount and it’s starting to adversely affect my workouts. I am riding more outdoors now but there are some workouts in TR that are just best done on the trainer, or I just don’t have the extra time for outside.
I’m looking for any tips\suggestions\hacks to counteract hot indoor training sessions. Oh, and bonus for managing lingering room odors!
