I'll check with her. Guessing she'll say that's too far, but if she's up there anyway, maybe. I'll let you know & thanks for the offer!

I just bought myself a Kickr, now for the silly questions!

Is there an app or something that I can download a route to to ride on the Kickr? For instance I can plan a route in Strava, can I then ride that route on the kickr?

Thanks

yeah it's called segments.. it's in the apple app store and runs on the iPad, but it's not free. if you want to ride a route you have to make that route one big segment and then you can ride the whole thing.

You can load course files and previous performance files into PerfPro as work outs. You can link any video to any workout in PerfPro. I'm guessing that a Garmin ride and a GoPro video of that ride would be killer together.

I mostly program intervals and watch Netflix though.

Has anyone got any tips on how to pair the kickr to a MacBook Air via BT?! Just bought a MBA and can't pair them for the life of me!

What app are you running on your Mac? The Mac can't natively pair / control the Kickr. You need an app like TrainerRoad to control your Kickr

That App has been withdrawn hasn't it?

Speaking of Apps, I use the iMobileIntervals and Wahoo Fitness Apps on my iPhone to control my Kickr. The iMobileIntervals website allows me to write erg files and has a library of erg files to choose from. These can then be uploaded to my mobile and they will control the Kickr for my interval session. It doesn't have any fancy videos but that doesn't bother me. I use the ERG setting of the Wahoo Fitness App when I'm doing 5, 20 or 50 minute test. You simply enter the desired wattage and the Kickr will hold it.

I find if u use erg mode (as I do mostly) that u need to "warm" the kickr up for 10 - 15mins, then do a spin down. If I don't do this warm up process the Kickr's power calculation will drift significantly, and 200w at the start will only be apppproximately 170 by 20 minutes in...

Sorry to rehash some of this if it's already been stated - trying to sift through a metric ton of data from this forum and DCRainmaker ... I now have a kickr - subscriptions aren't really my thing given the cost of entry to all this so:

Favorite app for simply loading a GPS course?

The Segments app - can't understand why they would allow you to ride a route instead but is hacking a segment to be a route the best way for riding a strava route?

I want to load previous races basically to do the courses at home .... on a mac ....

Still excited to see all this develop, never thought training at home would get to this level.

make a long(er) segment out of route and remember the number so it's searchable in the segment app. This is what I used to do.. or look for longer segments made by others. I've been using it lately with Zwift Beta... but that will be subscription eventually, so I'll have to decide if it's worth it at that point.

Can you create a route from a segment on the desktop or does it all have to be through the app?

Bkools software looks pretty interesting as far as simply being able to drop in a GPS file of some kind.

On the invite list for Zwift - sounds interesting so far.

yes you can create a "segment" from a "route".. just remember the number that gets assigned to it and search for it in the segment app.
