    Virtual Ride Thursday, July 2, 9am

    I will be holding a virtual event via Discord channel at

    Everyone is invited to join in on Discord.
    It does not matter the type training platform you use, if you use one at all. Just come and join in for a chat with friends.
    Note: The Discord channel will be active 30 minutes prior to the ride start. This way you can test to make sure you are connected.
    When you get to the Discord page, you will see a menu on the left labeled "VOICE CHANNELS."
    Under this menu list click on "Voice" and you should see yourself listed there. Click on you, then connect to voice.

     I will be using Zwift with a smart trainer. Zwift has a feature called Meetup for group rides.
    Note: I need to follow you on Zwift before I can send you an invite. Search me on Zwift (Paul Miklean (SBRA) or send me your Zwift ID.

    Zwift Meetup Information:

    Date: 7/2/2020

    Start time: 9:00 am 

    Note: You can join the meetup ride 15 minutes prior to the start time. But I would suggest giving yourself more time to get setup. Unfotunately, there are no late starts for Meetup rides. Better to join in early.

    Duration: 1 Hour

    Where: Watopia
