A big fan of Zwift? As you probably know, it’s not the only app on the market. We were curious about the different indoor cycling apps and made a summary below.
Biggest plus: you never cycle alone in this virtual world. Zwift is a big online community and a lot of pros use the app. You pay 15,99 euros a month, after a 7 day free trial.

Thanks to augmented reality it seems like you are cycling through real-life videos, so it’s more realistic than Zwift. You can choose from Career mode to improve your performance, and Challenges to compete with other cyclists. The challenges are different from Zwift, because Rouvy is not as popular as the big community of Zwift. You can try it for 14 days for free, and then you pay 6,25 dollars a month.
3. RGT Cycling
RGT Cycling only has a beta version, so it’s still free. You can only choose from six climbs. They’re very realistic (for example, Stelvio). You can only connect with ANT+.
This app uses a lot of videos from the Tour, Giro, and Vuelta. The app allows you to challenge others with a Strava segment. You pay 8,30 dollars a month for Bigringvr after you have tried it for 7 days for free.
This app has a lot of training videos from different real-life rides. The training program will adjust to your FTP. That sounds very nice, but the videos won’t change when you stop pedaling or when you slow down. Their is ‘Less virtual, more realistic’, so we assume they’re working on this. You can try Fulgaz for 14 days for free. After those two weeks, you pay 8,17 dollars a month.
