TrainerRoad Keeps Asking me to Log in

This is due to an old SSL cert being cached. The symptom is that you keep getting asked to log in with Internet Explorer, but Chrome and Firefox work.

This problem can usually be fixed in one of two steps.


1) Clear SSL Certificate Cache (Windows Only)

Note: Microsoft Edge does not have the option to clear the SSL Cache. If you're experiencing log-in problems within Edge, you may need to open Internet Explorer, and follow the below instructions on clearing the SSL Cache:

Try clearing your SSL cache if clearing your cookies didn't do the trick. Here's how to clear your SSL cache:

1.  Open Internet Explorer.
2.  Go to -> Internet Options -> Content Tab.
3.  Click "Clear SSL State".
4.  Close your browser and reopen it.


2) Turn off Proxy Server (Windows Only)

1.  Open Internet Explorer
2.  Go to Internet Options -> Connections Tab -> Lan Settings
3.  Uncheck "Use a proxy server for your LAN"
4.  Uncheck "Automatically detect settings"


Work Computer

Are you trying to log in from a work computer? Are you trying to log in from your office? There is a chance that your company's proxy or firewall settings are blocking access to the TrainerRoad site. See if you can log in from home.


Still Unable to Log in?

    Option 1 above worked for me. I wanted to add however, that I did have to reboot my box after clearing the SSL Cache before the fix worked, (just closing IE didn't work).

    Tried all of above Brian, including the shutdown and restart, and it still just keeps asking me to log in???

    Is there any chance you're trying to log in from a work computer? If so, your company may have a proxy server or firewall in place that's blocking access to our site.

    Also, what browser are you using? You may experience issues with our (and many other sites) if you're running Internet Explorer 8.

    Hi, it is a works computer I am using, but I have tried to login at lunch time when the filters are off and it just won't work. I have also tried using it on my home network but it just keeps going back to the login screen. I am running windows 7 and internet explorer 11?

    Hey Paul,

    So to clarify, have you tried clearing the SSL Cache on your home computer as well, or are you trying to log in from your home network on your work computer?

    Do you have a personal computer at home that you could try from?

    Let me know. I may need to ask for a developer's input on this one. :)

    same problem for me. I have done all of the above and still can't log in to the desktop app. Everything was working great, only use my laptop for this, and then one morning, I could no longer login.

    Tried all above and still unable to log on; program says it can't connect to at the bottom of the sign in page on my PC.
    Downloaded the app on to my Ipad just to see if I could logon that way and it does allow me to.
    Unfortunately I use a Computrainer and so can't use the Ipad (unless someone knows something different?)

    Hey Everyone,

    We're really sorry about this. :( This is an issue currently affecting PC users. We're working hard on finding a fix that automatically makes things work for everyone, but we have a solution that can be applied on your end in the meantime.

    Here's what you'll need to do:

    Open Internet Explorer, and go to internet options-> advanced -> scroll down to security -> make sure use SSL 2.0/3.0 and use TLS 1.0 are all checked. That should make sure that things are set up properly.

    Then, go ahead and reprocess any workouts that haven't uploaded if they don't do so automatically.

    If this doesn't do the trick, email us at letting us know you've tried this fix to no avail.

    Thanks Alex, I have been experiencing the same problem this week. Tried logging out and then logging on but was unable to logon to Trainerroad again from that PC (all other PC & ipad worked ok). Your fix appears to have done the job. Cheers

    Thanks Alex, That worked for me too. Was a very frustrated few days trying to get it to work again. Missed your post the first time so perhaps you could make it more clearly available somewhere? Back in action now but managed to delete a workout beyond recovery in the meantime

    Your second suggestion (January 24) worked for me. You should put that as an alternative 2 at the top of the page.

    Fantastic - I never thought to look here for support on this because everything works so well on Chrome but I prefer to use Edge. I can now go back to using Edge. Keep up the great work on TrainerRoad and the Ask a Cycling Coach Podcast.
