I’ve had a smart trainer for just over a year but always used the Bkool sim software until recently. Have dabbled a little in Zwift these last few weeks but I keep running into the same issue that stop me from using it more than once in a blue moon.
When I ride outside I can ride for hours, in fact my longest ride was somewhere in the 7 hour mark, but on a smart trainer my internal heat levels get so hot I can’t manage much more than 6 or 7 miles in Zwift.
I have my trainer in the top room which is always pretty cool, I open both front and back windows, have a large fan right in front of my bike blasting at full speed, I wear my cycling top which after 1 mile normally gets zipped right down.
I get sweaty after just 1 mile or so just after starting the flat or hilly route. You could boil eggs on my forehead after 2 miles.
I would love to do longer rides, and eventually have a crack at some of the challenging climbs, but am a million miles away from being able to do that indoors.
Any other Volcano riders using Zwift have any tips?
