Here’s an interesting device that lets you get your workout on a trainer, but move while doing it–no more staring at the TV while training! The inventor, Richard Lewis, describes it here:
The trainer uses a gear reduction system that allows riders to move at very low ground speeds of less than 5MPH while getting the same training benefit of time trialing at 25-30MPH. Cyclists can still get the intense workout they are looking for, while keeping even pace with a walking or running exercise companion.
He even imagines spinning class participants using this device on an indoor track. While still in the prototype stage, Richard hopes to find a company to purchase his patent for production. Here’s to slowly moving around the track in the near future!Hat tip to Colin for the link! Click ‘more’ for more images. Rear view.
