Hi and Good Evening,
So I’ve started this evening with Zwift, set up in my shed with an old traditional Elite mag trainer, so pretty basic. I’ve got a Garmin speed sensor attached to the rear hub and that’s about it…HR monitor battery went so waiting on Amazon for some 2025s. I’m using a notebook pc with on board Bluetooth and I’ve bought and plugged in an ANT+ receiver for the Garmin sensor. So far so good.
So I did the intro ride plus a bit for a total of 7.55 miles. The game reported about 200W for the most part with 330W for the sprint section, came out with an average of 186W throughout. I don’t yet have a cadence sensor so did a rough count of revolutions while watching the clock on the PC, came out to about 85rpm.
My total time came in at 28:12 with the game reporting an average of 18mph for the most part. This seems quite high to me. I’m by no means a fit cyclist and predominantly a mountain biker. I average about 10 mph on an easy trail or road, even on semi-road tyres. So 18mph seems…enthusiastic!!
What could I have done wrong??
