Zwift >>> MyWhoosh – Transfer your achievements between platforms

Ignoring the social side of things, I reckon MyWhoosh is more than good enough a platform for casual to semi-serious virtual cyclists. The big difference is that it’s free.

That said, another drawback stopping many from switching must be the loss of your achievements on Zwift. On MyWhoosh you’ll have to start again and cycle lots of miles to get from Level Zero to Level 50 hero. that’s a disincentive for some but I saw it as a nice way to feel good about a few weeks of indoor cycling.

I mentioned in my review of MyWhoosh that it would be handy if the platform allowed users to copy their achievements from Zwift. Well, it looks like someone was listening or, more likely, already had that planned. Verified riders can now transfer their level, distance, elevation gain and level-based rewards to MyWhoosh coins. It’s similar to a trade-in deal.

Other important changes include two new worlds and a new tech feature that aids the recovery of lost rides from, for example, a network dropout.

I’ve only used the MAC version (which has been extremely reliable) but I am aware of quite significant issues on other platforms and historical ones. The last release from Mywhoosh and this one continue to address those issues though I’m not sure what exactly has been improved in real-usage terms other than what the company states, see below.

Here are the key changes
