Despite some late-season snow here in the nation’s midsection, cyclists have been venturing out, eager to get their wheels out of the trainer and onto the roads. May is National Bike Month, and to help you gear up for your two-wheeled adventures, we’re giving you $100 back when buy an Edge 800 GPS bike computer now through May 31, 2013. The touchscreen Edge 800 puts mapping and navigation features at your fingertips, along with a color display and all the performance data you crave.
The 800 has been my guide and data tracking partner for three century rides for Bike MS. I love that it’s tough enough to survive some accidental drops on pavement, yet the touchscreen is super responsive and stands up to all weather. Well, at least thunderstorms and maybe some mud. This rider doesn’t venture out when my 800’s temperature reading hovers anywhere below 60 degrees. Edge gets even better when you use it with Garmin Connect, our free online community for storing, planning and sharing you rides. Here, you can search for courses or create new ones and upload them to your device.
And, for those who are using the Edge 800 for triathlon training, Garmin Connect just released the first set of triathlon training plans. Just browse the plans in the Explore tab, choose the one that fits your goals, select start and end dates, and add the workouts to your calendar. You can even send them to your Edge 800 for real-time coaching as you ride.
