I purchased a smart trainer and joined Zwift because I’m a flatlander who wants to complete some climbing challenges in the real world. Because of this, I’ve leveled very slowly since I’ve been focusing on the climbs.
Now the ultimate climb, Alpe d’ Huez, is available…If you’re level 15! I’m only at level 8; I’d have to ride around 900 miles before I get to level 15.
I’m training for a specific ride, and I can’t wait 3-4 months to get access to the climbing simulation I signed up for.
I strongly suggest that you lower the XP requirements to level. This has disheartened me greatly after being a huge Zwift fan, to the point I’m thinking of switching to another service and cancelling my membership. New riders will have to spend incredible amounts of time just to open up the training content that makes Zwift unique.
