How do I ride IMMT course on my Kickr?

slickfins_Ryanslickfins_Ryan Member, TRS/Baucco Team Member
I was trying to get up to Mt. Tremblant to preview the course before IMMT but it seems like it might be a lot cheaper to "ride" the course on my turbo trainer. What's the easiest way to do this? Zwift? Trainer Road? What sort of extra hardware do I need? Also I'm planning on doing this with a friend so we're both not so bored doing it separately that we kill ourselves. Is there a way we can both hookup to the same program in sync? Thanks friends.
Kind of wish I was Canadian. Sorry.

    I think Cycleops Virtual Training is supposed to be good for this, but I can't verify. Anyone tried it? 2 weeks free trial available.

    I think if you create a plan on Best Bike Split and then download the resulting erg file into Trainer Road you can get a reasonable simulation.

    Virtualtraining is the best option. You can load the course into the system if they done already have it and it will give you a google aerial view, as well as adjust according to grade be distance. Would do a route video if someone has it recorded and uploaded. I've used it a fair bit with my powerbeam.

    I tried VirtualTraining for the Muskoka course on my Kickr and I though it was much harder than the course in real life. A ride that usually takes me 3 hours wasn't done after 4 hours.

    It's less engaging, but I really like the erg file you can download from Best Bike Split then load in TrainerRoad.

    There's http://realtimeathlete.com/trainerview that stitches together Google street view images. It only goes at a single speed, though, and doesn't sync up with your power/speed.

    Best Bike Split also exports files for Zwift, Garmin, and probably a few others.

    I used Best Bike Split for Chattanooga ... I was happy with it.

    Come to MT and ride it anyway. It's a fun course.

    I feel ya, in so many ways I feel like riding my kickr is much much more difficult than outdoor rides. What the machine tells me was a 70 mile ride feels like 100+ to my legs. Maybe it's just the monotony though, I'm not sure.
