Step 3: Pair Your Devices

Once you've installed the app, you'll need to pair your devices before you start training. TrainerRoad pairs with most ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart devices.

ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart Adapters

You will need an ANT+ adapter to pair ANT+ devices. Bluetooth Smart (or 4.0) is built into some platforms, but requires an adapter on others. Learn more about ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart devices.

Step 4: Your First Power Test

The time has come for your first ride! Your first workout will be the Ramp Test. This test gives you the most accurate estimate of your current fitness. Upon completion, all your workouts will be automatically scaled to your personal fitness level (FTP).

Step 5: Choose a Training Plan

Choose from one of the many highly-effective training plans included with your membership. If you are between plans, you can choose from hundreds of other structured workouts. Or, you can create your own with the built-in Workout Creator.

Now that you're ready to go, stay consistent and work hard! You're on the path to becoming a fitter, stronger and faster cyclist.
