Rouvy uses what it calls “augmented roads” to create an immersive training experience. These combine GPS-based videos of real places with 3D-animated objects and rider avatars.

Like Zwift and others, Rouvy works with a smart trainer and allows you to compete (or simply ride with) other cyclists all over the world.
