After using Zwift for a few weeks I can say I am still impressed. For the first 2 weeks I used Zwift with a Heart Rate, Speed Sensor and Cyclops Fluid 2 Trainer. In this time the only frustration I would have are during sprints the software would detect wheel slippage and I would lose 2 seconds for everything to come back as it wouldn’t register power for that time.

I got my Stages Power Meter!

Now the tire slippage doesn’t matter anymore.  Zwift is reading directly from the power meter.  I didn’t buy the Stages power meter for zwift.  This was planned for over a year.  I am very happy with it for the 2 weeks I have had the power meter indoors as well as outdoors.  This has definitely taken away my frustrations with Zwift.

So far in Zwift I have racked up a few achievements and new gear.  The Facebook group Zwift Riders is the place to be for discussions.  Zwift changes the dynamic of riding indoors for me so much that I even run it when I am doing a trainer video and over lay the video on the left side of the screen.

Zwift … First look

I received a great email today.  Welcome to Zwift beta!

As soon as I got home for work I installed the software and set up my bike sensors. This was painless.

Then I set up my avatar and started riding.  It was a rest day so I said to myself I’ll just tool around for a while.

Ha That didn’t happen.

No less than two minuets in I was going for a KOM!  I can see this as a great way of beating the winter blues on the trainer.  I will report back when I have more time in the saddle with Zwift.

So much for a rest day.
