How To Ride Rollers On A Track Bike
Last year at the Red Hook Crit, I had a bit of a wobble getting on the rollers in the warm up zone because I hadn’t been on them for a while and everyone was watching me do it, godammit! Luckily, I’ve had a bit of practice since then – I now ride the rollers fairly regularly at home as it’s a good leg loosener and it helps me smooth out the kinks in my pedalling. When it comes to flat out, horrid high intensity intervals, I stick to my turbo as I can really get my head down and smash it without fear of falling off, but rollers are far more fun to ride as there’s a small degree of skill involved, so you have to kind of pay attention to what you’re doing.
In case you get the wobbles hopping on your rollers too, or you just haven’t tried it yet, here’s a quick video I made to show you how to get started in an easy, safe way.
I hope you like the video! If you have any questions, or if you would like to see more videos, please let me know if the comments.
