Recording an indoor ride in the Stages Cycling app is as easy as connecting your Stages Power meter. To start logging your ride:
- Go to the Devices section of the app and tap Add Device to search for your Stages power meter.
- Select Stages Power meter from the options and the app will begin to search for your power meter's signal. Connect to just the left meter only for Stages Dual-sided Power meters. If the signal does not populate right away, spin your crankarms a few times and select retry. Once you see your power meter's signal, select it to begin pairing and then select Done once prompted.
- Once paired, your Stages Power meter will show a green link icon in the upper right-hand corner.
- If you will be riding with a Bluetooth heart rate sensor, add it now as a new device. You must be wearing the Bluetooth heart sensor to activate it before making the connection.
- Exit out of the Device manager page and select the Ride icon.
- Start pedaling and metrics will populate. You will see the metrics power, cadence, estimated speed, BPM (if connected to a heart rate monitor), and Left-Right balance (if connected to a Stages Dual-sided Power meter or StagesBike). Tap the green Start button to begin recording. Once you begin to record, distance, ride time, and kCal totals will populate.
- If you'd like to perform a workout, tap the Workout tab. See Follow a workout in the Stages Cycling app for more info.
- Tap the Averages tab to view your averages for the ride.
- Tap the Pause button to take a break or end your ride. To end your ride, select the red Stop button.
- Add a title and description for your ride and hit upload.
