The B’Twin InRide 500 Bike Trainer

If you can’t bike outside, if there’s strong rains, strong winds, typhoons, or, if you are in that part of the world where it can get really, really cold, then a bike trainer is a must have. There are also times when, like right after my accident, my doctor forbid me to bike outdoors… Any of those instances above can be the perfect time to do some indoor training to stay fit.


The B’Twin InRide 500 from Decathlon is a very good trainer to have. It costs 10,000 Philippine Pesos (less than 200 US Dollars) so it relatively is not that expensive. You just need a separately sold speed and cadence sensor to pair with your bike computer or, in my case, my Garmin Fenix 5. With those, you can monitor your speed and distance traversed. The speed and cadence sensors are also sold by Decathlon.


The trainer is relatively quiet, is not that heavy (so it can be placed in different locations in your house or apartment) and folds to a relatively small size. However, the unit itself is stable and you won’t feel your bike wobble when you do your seated sprints. I got a bike riser from CycleOps since I want to have a relatively high front wheel when I use the trainer. I don’t want to feel like I am descending the whole time…


Oh, you can get the separately sold mat from Decathlon also.

And if you are short in space, then, in this video, I demonstrate that it is easy to set up your indoor trainer - just three and a half minutes! And I assure you, it took me that amount of time to fold everything up also. So, if you are short in space, then the area occupied by the trainer can be easily taken back and used for other purposes.


So, if you are in the market for a bike trainer, then check out the B’Twin InRide 500 from Decathlon. It is Highly Recommended!
