Getting Techy With It

I have to admit, it feels really cool to say, "I have an app." Yep, it's true, though my kids might tell you something different, I am hip to today's trends. After 14 years of teaching spinning I feel like I have finally arrived. Whether you live in New Jersey, Costa Rica, or right here in Davis, just go to your iphone, type in "irideinside" and there you will find me and two other great instructors, spinning away on a bike, and encouraging you to join the fun for 45 minutes, 1 hour or even 90 minutes of great rides.

Even if spinning brings up thoughts of wool or your last night of too much drinking - you might still find a way to enjoy this great tool. Use it at home on a stationary bike or trainer, while traveling, or if you get sold out of your regular spin class. Just don't take this ride outside - remember the name is irideINSIDE!

And even if you don't want to use this app for working out, the playlists alone are worth checking out.

Thanks to Jamima Wolk and her JammyCo business for this great opportunity and wonderful product.

To celebrate the launch of irideinside we are having a launch party tomorrow, Sunday, March 17th, from 4-6 pm at the U.S. Bicycle Hall of Fame

The app, usually a great bargain at $4.99 will be available at the best price ever at the event tomorrow--free!

Sorry, the app is not yet available outside of the US or for androids but those are coming soon.

Download the app on Itunes here
