    Details: 

    I will be holding a Virtual Bike Ride on Zwift.  

    You can also talk with us via Discord App channel: https://discord.gg/S6WacycxWB(link is external)

     

    It does not matter the type training platform you use if you would simply like to talk with us while you are also training. 

    Note: The Discord channel will be active 20-30 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 "General" 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(link is external) for group rides. 

    Note: I need to follow you on Zwift before I can send you an invite. Search me on Zwift ~PINKPUG{SBRA} or send me your Zwift ID(link sends e-mail)
    This can be done using the Zwift Companion app (not the regular Zwift app). You will need both installed.


    Zwift Meetup Information:

    Date: 01/01/2021


    Start time:
     8:30 am 

    Note: You can join the meetup ride 15 minutes prior to the start time. Be careful not to join more than 15 minutes before the start as sometimes the app will time out and disconnect you from the ride. Also do not delay joining either as you want to leave time for the "what ifs" as we all have found from time to time. There are no late starts for Meetup rides.
