I’m new to zwift and indoor trainers, I just bought a basic indoor trainer (Minoura B60) and I already have my wahoo speed, cadence and heart-rate monitors.
I just installed zwift and did a 20km cycle to get the feel of it, I connected my sensors and set the resistance of my trainer to L which is what zwift told me to do.
At the end of my ride I looked at my stats on strava and they are saying I averaged 39.7 kph and my average power was 260W.
A normal outdoor 20KM cycle on the flat for me I would average about 27kph and 155W. I don’t have a power meter, this is what strava is calculating (I know none of it will be hugely accurate but my outdoor sessions are pretty consistent).
I know I won’t get the full zwift experience unless I have a smart trainer (may happen down the line). How do I get the most accurate readings from zwift with my current setup, is it just a case of upping the resistance to get the numbers more inline with strava’s outdoor sessions?
Cheers for taking the time to read this and look forward to getting some tips on how I can get the best out of zwift with my current setup.
