The pairing box will turn green once your inRide is paired with TrainerRoad.

5. Performing a Spindown Calibration

Performing a spindown calibration ensures that your power readings are accurate. We recommend doing a spindown before each ride after the rear tire has warmed up. Spin for five or so minutes to warm the tire, click the button that says "Spindown", and follow the on-screen instructions that will appear.

Pro Flywheel

Check the Pro Flywheel box if you have one installed on your trainer. Learn more about the Pro Flywheel.


The inRide will stay paired and "awake" while TrainerRoad is running. To save battery life, close TrainerRoad after your workout or unpair the inRide.


If you're having problems pairing the inRide, it may not be working correctly. To reset the inRide, remove the battery and put it in backward for at least three seconds. After this is done, put the battery back in the normal way and try to pair it again with TrainerRoad.
