In this episode Sam, Max and Lowlands Cycling talk about Zwift and their journey into this amazing platform. Sam and Max are two cyclists that started as outdoor cyclists but evolved into, almost, dedicated online cyclists using Zwift. Their numbers are staggering. Max already has 4,000 miles and Sam over 3,700 miles in 2020. Zwift accounts for more than 90% of these miles.
We talk at length about the Zwift cycling community how easily it is to get started with Zwift.
“Zwift is an online exercise program for cyclists and runners at the moment. It is something that you put onto your computer, your laptop, your iPad and you hook up your indoor trainer to it. Slap your bike onto your trainer and you can ride in a virtual world with real friends from around the world; you have your personal avatars in there as well. It is a fantastic platform because you can do all sorts of things. You can do workouts, group rides with friends, or you can just go in and ride by yourself. Zwift being indoor cycling, it is very safe because you do not have to battle all sort of traffic on the bike, which is wonderful. So, yeah, it's a fantastic tool to get your exercise done in a safe, convenient way.”
“Well, I think for one. For one, this is a great way to eliminate excuses for not actually getting out and exercising, if it is raining out or if it's too dark or too much traffic, or you’re scheduled busy. There is always time that you can find on Zwift. All you have to do is just go down to the workout area and you are good to go. So you really don't need to have the perfect conditions you can ride when the weather's terrible and your day schedule is busy, and truly driving to start and cycling resulting in eliminating a lot of excuses for not getting yourself active!”
