With both subscriptions in force I decided to use them both. That's good because my CVT subscription has been idle since I found Zwift. My plan was to setup myself on Zwift, which I've done, and setup my wife on CVT. Here's how I did it.

I set my wife's FTP to 150 for her initial ride. I changed her FTP to 100 for the second ride. Since CVT and Zwift are both adaptive applications a lower FTP makes it easier for a rider to progress through the course, or something like that. I did some of the same things for my bike which I'd already been riding on Zwift. I even wrote the sensor number on my heart-rate monitor strap in permanent marker so I wouldn't make a mistake when starting the application. I also created a Strava account for my wife and changed the CVT cloud account information so any rides my wife completed on CVT would upload automatically to her Strava account and not mine.
When my CVT subscription expires we'll have to reevaluate our indoor cycling training plans. It will be spring in Georgia by then and we'll probably want to spend more time outside. That said, you can't discount the time efficiency of indoor training or the added safety of not dealing with distracted motorists. What might be more fun is letting the CVT subscription expire and creating a new account for my wife. That way we'd be able to ride together physically, in the same room, and virtually, on the same course. We would also need to invest in a new laptop.
Thanks for reading and Ride On!
