Wattbike is the Bugatti Veyron of Indoor Bikes - The Times

Posted by Matt Moran on Feb 07, 2012

It was fantastic to open The Times this past weekend and see the Wattbike described as '...a stationary bike. Yet it stands in the same relation to that rusting contraption in your mum's garage as a Bugatti Veyron does to a Robin Reliant.'

Wattbike February Training Tracks

Posted by Matt Moran on Feb 01, 2012

Here's the much-anticipated link to February's tunes to get you through that Wattbike session on Spotify. Don't shoot the DJ, I merely put your requests into a list, mixed them up a little (that's what DJs do right, mix?) and then hit the publish button.
