    Details: 

    I will be holding a Virtual Bike Ride on Zwift.

    For this virtual event anyone can join in the conversation using SBRA’s Discord voice channel: 

    https://discord.gg/S6WacycxWB 

     If you use this link select “Accept Invite” next.

    Note: SBRA’s 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.

    Note: Make sure to unmute your microphone. Go to the bottom left, next to your user name, the mic should not have a red slash through it. If it does, select the mic to unmute.

    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 ~PinkPug{SBRA} or text me your Zwift ID at 631-8752916

    This can be done using the Zwift Companion app (not the regular Zwift app). You will need both installed.

    Zwift Meetup Information:

    Date: 1/31/21

    Start time: 09:00 am 

    Note: You can join the meet up 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.
