  12. Video subbing, Wave of the future or bane of instructors?

    Is it time for club managers and group X directors to look seriously at the 'Video Sub'? They're easy to find, always on time, don't cost much and don't ask for raises. :D

    Vivienne,

    I couldn't agree with you more. And getting your riders back into heart rate monitor use is great to hear. It gives them portable feed back that is not attached to the bike. Once you...
