Someone who actually took it, if the test provides helpful information regarding exercise. Also, where can you take such a test

I have not taken one, I rely on a power meter for cycling. If you are on a cycling (bike4chai) chat or if you know guys that are, itís possible that one of them took it.
From the research that I made, unless you are a professional athlete a power meter is adequate and most cycling computer can give you an estimated VO2Max with that information.

I have found that reddit cycling thread is pretty helpful with questions like this.

I have several friends who got power meters recently and they seem pretty happy.

You can do it at a sports lab. Smartwatches such as Apple Watch also provide v02 max estimates which are very close to lab readings.
