This seems excessive to me...
I've been thinking about giving bkool another try, this will certainly make that happen.
Zwift is awfully boring, the races are rampant with cheats and it never, ever felt social to me.
Hopefully someone will come along with a good replacement.

In order to continue to make Zwift bigger, better and more beautiful, we are updating our membership price to $14.99 per month, effective today. As a way of saying thank you, however, to the awesome Zwifters who helped us get here, your pricing will not change for one year. If you happen to suspend your membership during this period and come back, you can still enjoy your current pricing level.

I am also thinking about bkool. Also researching on developing something of my own based on code base of Golden Cheetah.

Something such as a virtual gaps ride or sky loop would be neat.

Cheetah targets power level, if the trainer is set to erg mode, it is very stable.
Cheetah with a dumb trainer is actually more interesting, at least to me, as the load is proportional to speed.
I found that cadence ramps with Cheetah and the Kurt Kinetic to be a very effective training method.
But you're still staring at a graph.
With a Zwift workout at least the scenery is changing.

I did notice that Bkool now supports the Keiser spin bikes. The later bikes are supposed to have fairly accurate power measurement.
The Keiser bikes have great load control and out-of-the-saddle climbing is the best of any stationary bike that I've tried.
The Kickr is better than the wheel trainers for out-of-the-saddle climbing, but still, not like the real thing.
