Gone are the days of boring indoor trainer sessions; Rouvy has brought the feel of riding outdoors to the warmth of your pain cave.
Rouvy Augmented Routes takes triathlon training to another level
Augmented Routes are the next step in online training. These premium course videos allow you to ride within the geo-synced video footage. Rouvy’s hope is to eventually enable the Augmented Routes feature to cover the thousands of virtual routes on Rouvy.
With real-time video speed and road feedback, the Augmented Routes setting makes your ride more realistic.
Radka Kahlefeldt (Vodickova), Rouvy ambassador and multiple Ironman 70.3 champion, says the app is both efficient and fun. Having just recently become a mom, Kahlefeldt returned to racing in 2018 this year with wins in Vietnam, Cebu, the Philippines and Western Sydney.
Train anywhere in the world without the travel
Using Augmented Routes and Rouvy’s existing library of Virtual Routes, 2,000 high-quality GPS synced courses, you’ll have no problem training for your upcoming ‘A’ race. Not only will this build your confidence throughout the cold winter months, but you’ll be even more motivated to crush your season’s race goals.
Looking to dial in your race prep, but aren’t able to train on the course? Rouvy gives you the ability to create your own course video. Simply record your own video or download a GPS file from the race website and Rouvy will synchronize the images with realistic resistance. The only downside is that you’ll no longer have an excuse for poor race preparation.
Real-time riding and racing
Rouvy allows you to organize your own group rides with family, friends, teammates or any one of the thousands of cyclists/triathletes on Rouvy. You can even create your own races. But, if you just want to get in your intervals and ‘go into the red’ on the Challenge Roth bike course, you’ll still be able to see the other Rouvy users currently training on that road. Just as if you were a local out for a ride.
Train on triathlon courses across the globe
Rouvy’s library currently includes the bike courses of Ironman Kraichgau, Arizona, Challenge Roth, Escape from Alcatraz, the New York City Triathlon and many more.
With Augmented Routes, the feature will be expanding to cover all of Rouvy’s Virtual Routes eventually, you can make your training experience even more realistic and engaging.
