Zwift Indoor Cycling

As much as we’d not like to admit it, fall and winter are on their way and they’re bringing bad weather with them. In the past this has meant boring workouts on rollers in your basement (or a big bag of Cheetos and an hour or so on the couch), but now thanks to Zwift, getting a good workout inside is both easy and fun.

The concept behind Zwift is relatively simple. It essentially measures the watts you produce on a stationary bike or smart trainer and projects that energy onto an animated character who rides through a virtual environment. It’s surprisingly true to a real ride given that your speed is adjusted for height weight, and road gradient. While you won’t exactly feel the relief you get from drafting off of a rider in your garage, you’ll be rewarded for it in the game. Zwift works for both Mac and PC, and it was just recently announced that the game can also function on iOS so you can train and play with an iPad or iPhone. Prices for access to Zwift are a monthly charge of $10. [Purchase]
