Indoor Training with Zwift
With winter approaching, many riders head for their indoor trainers. Although there are many different approaches to indoor training, one of the latest is Zwift which aims to ‘gamify’ the indoor training process. Now you can ride with anyone at anytime. Packed with real-time stats, stunning lifelike graphics, and the latest in massive multiplayer online gaming, Zwift has kicked up the indoor cycling experience.
Zwift co-founder Eric Min is a serious cyclist himself, known in cycling circles for sponsoring major teams. He recently left the high-speed trading company he co-founded and was considering what new business to start. He also was wondering why the experience of indoor riding hadn’t improved much in years.
So Min settled on a simple goal: make indoor cycling better. A massive, online world – usually a videogame realm for dragons and wizards – could do the trick, he thought.
