Although it’s been around for a while now, the pop­u­lar vir­tual re­al­ity cy­cling pro­gram has taken off of late, of­fer­ing a num­ber or rac­ing events each day, more cy­cling cour­ses, group rides and lots of train­ing pro­grams. In case you haven’t tried it out, Zwift, which is in­spired by the world of gam­ing, runs you through a vir­tual course that sees your ef­fort power an avatar across the screen. Age groupers aren’t the only ones who have be­come ad­dicted to train­ing on the plat­form. Last year, a num­ber of Canada’s na­tional cy­cling team found them­selves rid­ing the same course at the same time, turn­ing a reg­u­lar train­ing ride into a full-fledged race. All you need to get on to Zwift is a com­pat­i­ble trainer (or a set of rollers and your own power me­ter), an Ant+ adap­tor and a com­puter, and you’re off to the races or your next fun work­out, which ever you’d like.
