Hi everyone, newbie novice here!
I’ve just bought a TACX Vortex Smart trainer and did my first ride on zwift yesterday, very impressed. I’m not an experienced (or good) cyclist but have am taking part in a challenge at work to cover 3,500 miles in 2016 so I figured this might be the best method me to do so as I don’t get out on rides very often.
My setup is a Vortex Smart with my Chris Boardman race bike plus an Ant+ with a USB extension so it’s close to my bike. And here’s my questions:
Do I need to do anything to calibrate my bike/turbo to zwift? The ride I did yesterday was 40 minutes around the street course (with hills) yet I only covered 10.5 miles (no taking the p1ss!). I want to be sure the distance I’m covering is accurate and reflective of the effort I’ve put in.
Does anyone know if there’s a flat course in which I can just do a consistent effort to get the best distance possible?
I hear people talking about riding round the island but couldn’t see where to do this?
Thanks in advance and look forward to seeing you on zwift
