I've seen others use Zwift as an option to help keep the sanity while on the indoor. What does it take to be get set-up? I know you need a screen and the ability to connect to the internet. What do you have on the bike that communicates with Zwift. It seems pretty cool and looks to be a better option than switching on re-runs of shows.
I have Garmin speed/ cadence sensors on my bike. Locked into a cycleops fluid2 trainer. Running zwift on windows 7 pc with an Ant+ adaptor. Had to get a short USB extension cable to have the Ant+ adaptor closer to the bike (signal kept getting dropped). I also have the zwift app on my phone some remote control and chat options. Eventually I'd like to get a kickr.
