Hi ladies and gents.

 

From tonight cycling outside is verboten, but not inside! So, lets have regular group rides on Zwift, we chat, ride and chill together, share stories,and give each other strength and comfort during this surreal, dystopian and terrifying time.

 

So, I will be organising meet ups, and everyone is welcome, whether beginner, weekend warrior, or cycling god. The idea idea is to ride together as a bunch, but I guess anyone who wants to ride away at be at 5w/kg is most welcome.

 

Anyway, follow me on Zwift, and I will invite you to my meet ups - just maybe also post your zwift name on here, or pm it to me, so I don’t miss anyone out.

 

My Zwift name: Harry Nochumsohn

 

The first ride is at 6pm tonight (joburg time) and we are riding 60 mins of the Watopia Out and Back route.

 

Note : I have it on very good authority (aka @V12man) that we should quite ride easy at this time, so as not to compromise the immune system. So the rides are just “coffee rides” - not opfok sessions. I will be going be going slow, but only cos i cant go fast. But each to his own.

 

If you do not have a smart trainer, you can use an ordinary dumb trainer with a speed sensor and an ant + dongle. Here’s how :

Suits me just fine. Just donated blood, so tonight I'm going slow whether I want to or not :D

Isn't there a ring or fence function which keeps everyone in a group regardless of how much power they making?

 

Edit: Found it! https://zwiftinsider.com/keep-everyone-together/ - cool feature. Everyone rides their own pace together. Pretty sweet. You can even do intervals etc while being social(ly isolated).
