I have some trips back to visit my folks coming up. Anyone have suggestions for how to use a gym or home stationary bike to get on Zwift? Would a footpod for running work? I’ve been trying to search the webs for something but it’s been hard to find. You fine folks are the best direct source. Thanks!
A running footpod will not work for biking within Zwift.
A good option would be: https://www.powertap.com/product/powertap-powercal
PowerCal is indeed a very good option to travel with.
Since it provides HR and PWR you are good to go with absolutely any bike and a mobile device.
A little downside though: Power readings fluctuate at lower heart rates. In order to get your avatar constantly moving, you need to keep up a HR of 140+ and something around a 170+ watts.
Another nice option is the MilestonePod. Along with the PowerCal you got everything you need to get you zwifting on a treadmill or bike.
Thank you for the suggestions. I’ll look into both.
