About The iFit And Tour de France® Race
The iFit and Tour de France® series includes all 21 stages of the race, with a total distance of 2,220.5 miles (3573.54 km) broken down into 112 workouts, so you’re able to ride at your own pace. The race route begins in Nice and ends in Paris, with a total of six regions and 32 departments travelled through by the race’s conclusion. Additionally, you can look forward to riding through the five mountain ranges of France: the Alps, Massif Central, Pyrenees, Jura and Vosges.
Just like other workouts you may have experienced on ProForm® and iFit, your incline, decline, and resistance will automatically be adjusted to reflect the natural grade of the road that you are virtually riding on, so you can merely focus on the race and scenic views. The Tour de France’s® steepest grade is around 12%, which your ProForm machine will automatically change its incline to this extremely challenging angle—-making for an even more transportive and true-to-life experience.
If the automatic adjustment levels sound too challenging, you choose to make resistance and incline adjustments manually. That way you can continue to race at your own pace.
To get started, access the iFit and Tour de France® Part 1 and Part 2 on your machine. And if you don’t have access to your ProForm machine, you can simply download the iFit app in the Apple Store® or Google Play®. For those of you who are new to the game, download the iFit app and sign up for the 30-day free trial, then place your smartphone on your machine and follow along. Or cast from your smartphone via Apple TV® or Google Chromecast® for an even more immersive experience.
