hi, no matter what ride i do the wind speed in my tacx vr program is always medium. why doesn't it change? you may as well have no wind. surely there should be some variation. one day windy one day not so? is this the same with other users?
i hate hills (cos i'm fat)

    I think it's that if you ride a course that has already been created, ie, the ones that VR comes shipped with, you are fixed to whatever the weather settings were when it was created.

    If you have a steering frame you can create your own courses, and then you can set whatever weather settings you want.

    What a shame nobody has yet managed to provide a facility for this on the road yet. :(

    Isn't that the truth, for my Saturday ride I would have selected just about any other setting than the one I got!

    On my set indoor set up I turn up the fan speed one notch :lol:

    I tried putting the fan behind me to get a tail wind, but just ended up with a chill in my kidneys!
