Zwift has you covered here, too – your Pizza Power is the number of slices of pizza you earned during your ride. I wouldn’t recommend eating your pizza as you earn it – you’ll get grease on your keyboard.
Does Bike matter in Zwift?
Yes the bike matters. Notice the aero and weight ratings. Lighter climbs better, aero is better when speeeds are high, usually on flats and rolling. TT bikes are very fast but do not draft.
Most pro cyclists produce about 200 to 300 watts on average during a four-hour tour stage. The recreational rider, on the other hand, might be only able to sustain this wattage during a 45-minute or hour-long spin class. “That’s what’s great about wattage.

How long is Alpe du Zwift?
What is a good time up Alpe d Huez?
Most club cyclists will be in the range of 50 – 75 minutes (this is assuming you are going for the best time i.e. flat out). 50 minutes or less would be a Cat A or Cat 1 cyclist who excels on the hills, and 75 minutes for a recreational, but fit club cyclist who rides regularly but is not that keen on the uphill stuff!
If you want to climb faster, you’ll need to train on climbs! Apart from simply doing a lot of climbing, common workouts to help you get up the hills faster include low cadence work and hill repeats. Low cadence work means staying seated while turning the pedals at ~60-70rpm.

General day to day training i find it’s not close, but race speed seems similar. I think my 20k tt times are within 30 seconds on zwift vs outside on closed road. At 250w Zwift is 1-2mph faster than reality, for me. I find I’m faster in the real world, over similar slopes.
