Ramp Test Outside

May have been a previous post, but can we change a ramp test from indoor to outdoor? Thanks in advance.

No, it is not officially supported by TR.

I have made my own ramp test for my Garmin and done it outside plenty of times. The built in FTP test in the newer Garmins is a kind of ramp test (much larger and longer steps).

Best way to do a ramp test outdoors is to take the bike and trainer to street, run a long extension cable and ramp. Maybe put a tip jar out for people who pass by


Personally, I have always tested outside but by using a standardized 20-minute protocol. Same route every time.
