YOUR VIRTUAL COACH VIA RIDE JOURNAL
Ride journal will take make an initial assessment of your current fitness and riding experience before you even get started. The "Wizard" will ask questions that will aproximate where you are right now (an imprefect process, but certainly good enough to get you started).
From there, Ride Journal will propose a training plan that focuses on managing your "Training Load" or your "dose of training" as a doctor might perscribe to help you become more fit. This is based on the now famous Heart Zones® system of training, invented by hall of famer, Sally Edwards and tested time and time again.
Our Ride Buddy Buckets app will also automatically upload your training sessions (indoors or out) to Ride Journal.
Ride Buddy Buckets was designed specifically for the Keiser m3i bike which has Bluetooth data being transmitted from thelr latest computers. If you have one of these bikes, or an older m3 that has been upgraded with the latest bike console (computer), this app will be able to pair with the bike. Power, RPM and other sensors are dependent upon the bike sending said data via Bluetooth.
However, for heart rate you can use either your own Bluetooth heart rate transmitter belt (which can be purchased from many sites including our store, or a Polar T31 which will synch up with the Keiser m3 (all models).
Ride Buddy Buckets focuses on the training load of an indoor or outdoor cycling ride. This focus targets the most critical objective of anyone wanting to improve fitness, lose weight or become a better rider; the stress and adaptation cycle. Ride Buddy Buckets also works with any Bluetooth compatible sensor on outdoor bikes as well as the newer indoor bikes with computer consoles.
