The stationary bike is a great way to get in shape and stay healthy. We all know that cycling has many benefits, such as strengthening the heart, reducing stress, and improving mood. 

But it’s hard to keep track of how far you have gone on your stationary bike if you have one without an integrated bike computer. Or you might want more data than your integrated stationary bike computer. 

So in this quick blog post, we will share with you five ways to track miles ( and much more ) on a stationary bike.
