Zwift dominates the indoor cycling app landscape, and you’ll need to pay for a subscription after a 14-day trial period, with the monthly fee currently £12.99 / $14.99. However, there are alternatives, with the best free indoor cycling apps providing a variety of user experiences.

With Wahoo closing Wahoo RGT, which offers a free tier, the only option that gives you a gamified environment comparable to Zwift is now MyWhoosh.
Some free Zwift alternatives offer route videos similar to Rouvy, although you’ll often only have a small number of free-to-use roads to ride, with a paid subscription opening up further options and greater functionality.
Other free indoor cycling apps limit you to a ramp-based interface rather than something more interactive. If you’re happy with that and don’t mind looking elsewhere for entertainment while you ride, more options open up.
