    I’ve been taking a break from Zwift and Rouvy and giving Fulgaz another try. Quite buggy and lacks the breadth of routes that Rouvy has. I’m not impressed so far. It’s hardly changed since the version I used 18 months ago

    I use Rouvy because it most closely compares to my outdoor results and offers a great number of realistic routes. Speed reported per specific cadence and gear selection in Rouvy matches my outdoor speed and the effort feels the same. I have compared with Fulgaz and RGT and found Rouvy to be the best.
    As to internet, Rouvy routes can be downloaded for optimum performance.
    I have avoided Zwift due to its video game style and unrealistic and limited VR type routes.

    Missing trainer day. Cheap as chips and very good.

    Wahoos is getting better, not quite as social as swift but it does the trick with more affordable price if payed yearly…

    I bought a Wahoo Kickr Snap and 50 inch TV during the last Black Friday sales day and I’m presently trying out a couple of online cycling apps (Fulgaz & Rouvy).
    After the free trail I’ll probably become a paid subscriber to one, but I haven’t decided which one I’ll go with.

    So useful to see alternatives to the ubiquitous Zwift. They obviously leaver their huge marketing budget to get so many sponsored videos on other bike channels, so kudos to you for putting together an honest and informative assessment such as this.

    Why can’t all presenters be as good as this guy! Great informative video!

    You’ve just answered something currently on my mind, so this was especially useful ~ thank you.

  10. TonInter on December 31, 2022 at 2:51 am

    Excellent overview, thanks! Might give the MyWhoosh one a try.

    I wish there was a good app you could just buy one-off instead of on subscription. I’d be happy to have in-app purchases for extra maps or whatever, but I don’t want a subscription that I have to cancel each spring and resubscribe each autumn.

    none of them. I just watch youtube videos while I ride indoors.
