A lot of people like the idea of Zwift Running, but don’t already have the hardware such as a foot pod/cadence sensor, and are a little reticent to buy expensive hardware to try out the system. AppyAppster have just released “Treadmill Smart Speed – Designed for Zwift Runs” which may allow a low-cost entry to Zwift Running for some people
Since Zwift was released, there has been a steady run of updates and new features. This post has been set up as the UNOFFICIAL Zwift User manual, to keep abreast of the changes and document the tips, tricks, issues and information which has been announced and also discovered by the world of Zwift riders. I aim to keep this manual updated as new information comes up, and things change. So #RideON

With the launch of Zwift iOS at the weekend any user with a stable of ANT+ only sensors is going to be faced with a decision. Buy new dual channel BLE/ANT+ devices, or use a bridge device.

Wahoo Segments app is very unique, and works with many of Wahoo’s other products. The Wahoo KICKR is an amazing piece of kit, and engineered to an industrial standard. But it’s true power as a training tool becomes apparent only apparent when paired to some of the great turbo trainer apps out there – see Zwift.
Wahoo have created the Segments app to utilise the variable resistance of the Wahoo KICKR to allow you to cycle Strava segments, and cycle against other riders pre-existing times in the comfort of your own Pain Cave/home.
Currently the app is available on the App Store as one of the higher priced apps at £22.99. So like the KICKR it works with, it’s an expensive proposition, so is it worth it?
