https://www.zwift.com/

Zwift is not free but you can check it out for 7 days to see if it is something that interests you. With Zwift, you never have to skip a ride because it is raining and it is available 24/7.  They have FTP tests, group rides, and virtual races. If you prefer the safety of the indoor trainer, this is a great way to decrease the mind-numbing boredom.

$14.95 Monthly

Trainer Road is geared more toward tech savvy riders. You can create custom courses by uploading Garmin data.  And unlike Zwift, you don’t have the fun scenery to watch. 30 day money back guarantee if you decide it is not for you.

$19.95 monthly/$189 yearly (a savings of $50 over the monthly fee)
