Posted on

Wait, is that G? Zwift seems to be taking over the world right now. We go backstage with Mathieu van Der Poel at their film shoot to find the man with the plan

With the world going into lockdown, indoor riding is, unsurprisingly, on the rise.


Turbo trainers are selling out faster than toilet rolls and training app subscriber numbers have gone though the roof.


We spend the day in a London studio with Mathieu van der Poel and the copious film crew to find out why Zwift is leading the way in the market.


The Rouleur Longreads Podcast brings you selected long form articles from the magazine, especially recorded for Rouleur. Don’t stop what you’re doing – do it while listening to the world’s best cycling writing.


The fourth in this series is ‘Watopian Ideals’ by Ian Cleverly, from Rouleur 20.2. Read by George Oliver.
