Took the electric Brompton out today for a spin although most of my riding these days is in the comfort of my home. Recently purchased a Wahoo Kicker Bike and use it in conjunction with the Zwift app. Amazingly realistic and climbed Alpe D’Huez twice and Mont Ventoux amongst other rides in the last few weeks. Just like the real thing but no traffic to worry about. An extra bonus is my HbA1C has dropped dramatically and the Doctor is talking of reducing my medication if I maintain or reduce the present level at my next review.
Interesting. Was going to ask what you hooked your bike up to as an input to the App and then I looked up the Wahoo Bike. Blimey, they ain't cheap, not that anything to do with 2 wheels ever is. I keep contemplating a trainer to put my old non-electric bike in but not sure I can justify the ongoing costs of Zwift. Why is everything subscription these days?
