With winter drawing in in the northern hemisphere, many cyclists are turning their attention to indoor riding. In preparation for turbo training season, Rouvy has announced a raft of new features and updates for its online training platform that will be released over the coming months.
The online training brand recently rebranded and has now announced a host of new changes to its online platforms to go alongside this, including eleven new routes, a new dashboard and web portal, AI updates to improve the workouts, plus new group subscriptions to make it easier to ride with friends and family.
The virtual training platform hasn’t confirmed dates for when each of the features will be released, only confirming that users will see them “over the coming months.”
New indoor training routes
One of the new routes is based on the Cime de la Bonette
Rouvy is one of the most popular indoor training apps which overlaps real-life video footage with GPS-data to create an augmented reality. This allows users to explore virtual routes, which currently sits at over a thousand.
That number will soon be even higher with the brand set to introduce eleven new routes over the next few months from France, Spain, Italy, USA, Slovenia, Canada and Switzerland. This includes Centennial Lake, Bryce National Park in Utah, Mallorca’s famous Puig Major climb, plus Cime de la Bonette, one of France’s and Europe’s highest paved passes.
While only eleven routes have been revealed so far, Rouvy has confirmed that many more will be added throughout the coming months.
Revamped Rouvy dashboard and web portal
Both the app and web portal have undergone significant changes
Following feedback from customers, Rouvy has completely revamped its app, creating a new dashboard that, “provides a seamless journey for users, simplifying decision-making processes and allowing users to focus on achieving their best.”
The updated app also offers enhanced functionality, allowing users to take snapshots of their rides and share them on apps such as Strava.
In a complete overhaul to the user interface, the web portal has also undergone significant changes to improve the user experience, making it easier to manage an account, analyse activities, link to other social accounts such as Strava, and importantly, discover new routes.
Ride with friends through group subscriptions
A new bike will soon be available to celebrate Rouvy's rebranding
While it’s already possible to link up with friends for a group ride, Rouvy is introducing a new group subscription model which it says will, “make it easier to ride with your friends and teammates.”
It hasn’t confirmed any more details as of yet, although it sounds like a joint subscription of some kind could be on the cards.
Celebrating its rebranding, Rouvy is also releasing a new bike – virtual of course – that will land in everyone’s virtual garages soon. That bike will also become the default bike for anyone using the app.
