epicRIDES is a series of training videos shot on location and on ride at some of the most epic road rides in the U.S. and Canada.
Besides the pretty scenery (shown in widescreen, but not HD), there are a lot of in video bonuses that maximize the workout and extraneous info that adds to their value.Ã‚Â On screen, there’s a full featured dashboard showing the current point in your ride, actual elevation, target exertion level and more.Ã‚Â They offer downloadable PowerProfiles that can be loaded into some Saris CycleOps trainers and spin bikes, and some folks have input the elevation profile to their Computrainers to simulate the ride, too.
Outside of the video, they have full route maps available for download and through MapMyRide, so you can find and ride them if you’re ever in the area.Ã‚Â They currently have four DVDs available with rides in Tucson, AZ (Mt. Lemmon & Saguaro East), Bar Harbor, ME (Acadia National Park) and Vermont (Green Mountain).Ã‚Â The Rouge Roubaix (Louisiana) is coming soon.
