Sufferlandrians are brave, fearless even. In fact, they are only afraid of one thing, and that’s living in a world without high intensity intervals.
They aren’t afraid to drop into their torture chambers and discover new and dark places. We found some of the grimmest bike torture chambers and shared them here, for your viewing pleasure.
We can only speculate what these bikes are designed for — to power some mad science experiment, perhaps — but it confirms the old adage that misery loves company.
No obvious signs that this BTC isn’t buried 90 feet underground as part of some Couchlandrian Wars era bomb shelter; conspicuous presence of lactic acid distilling vats; linoleum tiles.
There’s a light, so at least you can see how much holy water you’re shedding.
This one’s about as exciting as watching white paint dry.
No signs of electrical outlets and so the possibility that this poor soul is not suffering with The Sufferfest. So sad.
A BTC with multiple flogging stations and no natural light or air circulation.
Oxidised pipes, infomercial quality weight-lifting equipment, generous amounts of concrete.
What’s that chair doing there?! Chairs are for Chairlandians!!!
Bricks, burnt out light bulb, leaky plumbing.
Between deep breaths spent inhaling mold, you’re made aware of the chamois shredding pain of a vintage saddle. Getting out of the saddle to stand for a climb is out of the question, you’ll bump your head on the low ceiling.
Thirsty? You could always lap up that delicious-looking pain stain.
No one can hear you scream from this BTC.
The drug smuggling tunnels from Tijuana to San Ysidro are more spacious, better lit and certainly smell fresher then this BTC.
Can’t decide if that Big Bird chair is creepy or comforting…
If the walls of this BTC could talk…
Hardwood floors that have been pain-stained to within an inch of their life and the sense that this BTC is in the loft of a slaughterhouse.
It’s got a pretty decent fan. And a pump… what are those for again?
