How Indoor Cycling Impacts the Bike Industry
Staying fit and keeping up with training year round can be a challenge, but today there are more options than ever — from boutique spin studios and Peloton bikes for at-home virtual workouts, to apps like Zwift and indoor programs at local bike shops — all of which have made riding indoors more accessible and a lot more fun.
In the first episode of Interbike — The Podcast, we’re talking with Bicycle Retailer & Industry News features editor Val Vanderpool, who explored the indoor market (and got hooked on spin classes in the process) for recent and upcoming stories in the magazine about what’s driving these trends and how they’re impacting the bike industry. Also joining us is Bernie Doering, vice president of global sales and marketing at Stages Cycling, which manufactures spin bikes for several boutique studios in addition to the power meters for which the company is best known. Doering provides insights into how indoor riding technology has changed, how it has impacted sales at bike shops and where trends might be going.
