I can tolerate a maximum of one (1) email newsletter subscription in my inbox at any one time. It used to be @Kelly O'Mara 's, then when hers stopped I was down to zero. I susbscribed to Brad's a few weeks ago and have read them all without wanting to punch myself in the neck! So that's something.
It really is great though. A solid 2 minutes of "huh, neat!", weekly.
Just got an email that my Amazon Associates Account (Canada's version of the affiliate program) hasn't generated any sales in the past 90 days. WTF, you might ask? I did.
Turns out the Amazon Canada is still willing to admit that we weren't trying to cheat them out of commissions. So if you're in Canada, you can click the link below (or you may see some ads) to support the Roost until they decide to shut us down again.
This month's team challenge is a cross-forum challenge to all Roost members - the annual TriRoost March Madness bracket challenge! $25 Amazon gift card to both Men's AND Women's bracket winners! Get in the game! Trash talk is not mandatory, but definitely encouraged.

Given that all I've been doing on Zwift is logging on and hitting "just ride" for the past couple years, I figured I'd put my membership on pause and try the free RGT Cycling app. Anyone else using it? Here are my thoughts after 1 ride and very little investigation on how the app works:
Overall, I can't imagine anyone paying $10/month for this experience when you can pay $15 for Zwift. If you're a basic user, you'll have everything you need in the free version; if you want advanced features, the two-device issue and poor FPS on a perfectly decent computer are likely enough on their own to make the extra $5/month worth it for Zwift.
TL;DR - RGT will get you through your rides if you're also watching TV (or maybe doing a TR workout or whatever), but has a ways to go before it's worth $10 USD/month and/or can expect to be a serious Zwift competitor.
