I'm getting so tired of hearing indoor cycling instructors say "If you don't do it on a bike outside you shouldn't do it on a bike inside".   This statement is repeated over and over again on social media.  In Facebook groups like Indoor Cycling Instructors battles will rage on for days about topics like weights on the bike, tap backs or appropriate RPM ranges.  Often these movements will be labeled "Dangerous".  I often wonder if the instructors who say "If you don't do it on a bike outside you shouldn't do it on a bike inside" have ever ridden a bike outside.  I can think of no more dangerous activity than riding outside.  Cyclist literally put their lives at risk ever ride.

This video below shows how "safe" riding outside can be.

 

 

Something else I find interesting is the same person who screams "If you don't do it on a bike outside you shouldn't do it on a bike inside!!!!!" will in the very next post ask if anyone has a suggestion for a hill climbing song with a BPM of 72.  Hmmm, when I ride outside I don't listen to music because that IS dangerous and I certainly wouldn't limit myself to riding at one specific RPM.  So, if this instructor really believed "If you don't do it on a bike outside you shouldn't do it on a bike inside" then they shouldn't be using music during indoor cycling class!
