There is a new player in the cycle trainer market Zwift. They are gamifying cycle training with a new program that connects with your bikes sensors or smart trainer to have you racing others.
Zwift is an online community of like minded athletes united in the pursuit of a better indoor training experience. Created by cyclists for cyclists, Zwift brings the things we love about outdoor cycling indoors and adds a dose of fun. Yes fun!
How do we do it? We start with the best of massive, multiplayer video game technology – our “Zengine” – add in a little voice communication and a whole lot of math. Zwift works across multiple platforms seamlessly connecting to all your existing devices wirelessly via ANT+ and *Bluetooth Smart protocols.
I have used the software and it is addictive and really helps pass the time while sitting on the trainer. Check them out while they are in beta of you can as the cost is FREE just now..you do need an ant+ stick.
