Rouvy

Hi

I just signed up for a trial of Rouvy. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but so far it’s not what I expected.

I wanted to ride the IM Lanzarote route in stages over a few rides. Was hoping to be able to see the virtual 3D world go by, like on Zwift. But it seems it’s not like that at all. Basically it seems to move a marker around a 2D map?

Does anyone use Rouvy? Is this your experience too or am I doing it wrong.

Cheers

Yes, it did my head in.

Some routes have no video.

Sometimes a route starts in map mode, and you have to switch it to video.

Im virtually certain there isnt a video version of Lanza, otherwise I would have done it :smiley:

In the Routes menu, go to Ironman, those are all video and accurate routes.

I did use a no video map once to see how far Id get on the Barcelona course at a certain power output. I did it once for about 90mins while I listened to a podcast. I cant see myself doing it again.

Thanks Joex.

I might have got the wrong end of the stick, something I read in a magazine made me think it could take a route with gpx coordinates and let you ride a sort of Google Street view version of the route??

I havent looked into that, I think Kinomap does that sort of thing?
