"G'day Andrew, I've been using a Wahoo Kickr with Zwift for about a year now. I can't ride on the road just yet because the brain surgery I had last year means my balance is still not good enough for me to be on the road. Yes,…"

"Don't know of any Trainer Hire places but you could buy a cheap 'Dumb' trainer and link that up with Zwift. The effect isn't the same, so I'm told, but it would give you a feel for it. While the smart trainer is around…"

Smart Trainer Hire

I would like to get into cycling, but as my wife does shift work, and we have an 18 month old, getting enough time to go for a ride is near impossible. I am looking at going down the Smart Trainer route so I can get some miles up when our daughter is sleeping and my wife is working.  I would like to combine it with Zwift.However, given my personal history of buying exercise equipment, and then only using it for a few weeks, I'm not willing to purchase a Smart Trainer to only use it a few times…See More
