new to zwift and have some questions

Good morning,

I am thinking about setting up zwift for the winter months and just started to look into it.  My bike currently has speed/cadence/power meter on it and I have a separate heart rate monitor which all syncs up with my Garmin 820.  I do have a fluid trainer for my bike.  Is this all that is needed to get started?  


are there budget trainers that can change the resistance depending on the course that I’m riding with zwift?

You’ll need to connect your speed sensor etc to your computer or ios device. Depending on what you’ve got you may need to buy a ANT+ stick or you can connect via Bluetooth smart through your phone.

Check out the following article on getting started. Have fun once you get up and running.
