Gears Toronto and Gears Mississauga are offering independent Tacx Flow Virtual Reality Trainer sessions, anytime during our open hours, where you bring your own bike and attach it to one of our Tacx stations. There is a Tacx trainer plugged in, a computer and monitor/video screen at each station. Bring your I-Tunes and ride one of the many scenic routes offered. Your bike will be attached to a trainer and you will choose a route, it may be the Tourmalet in France, or the Dolomites in Italy. The life-like images pass time quickly, and the plugged in trainer allows for real tension to be added to the bike as necessary to simulate the terrain, without you having to do anything but enjoy the ride. The system is so advanced that you can manipulate the settings to set a % of the actual difficulty. For example if a hill has an 8% grade, and it is just too much tension for you, simply decrease the pain to whatever percentage you are comfortable with. This type of individual programming allows you and your friends to ride similar courses successfully.
Each session up to 90 minutes is $20/session, or unlimited access for $150/month + hst. Bike storage is also available for $50/month.
