Zwift ride fun

The Baucco coaches do organized Zwift rides. Tons of fun. Worth your time. Saw it in the nick of time this morning, and glad I did.

I'd like to commend our own @Brew_Tri, a ride coach today.

    @Tad_M or @Brew_Tri can one of you give us a Cliff Notes version of how these rides work (for Zwift newbies like me)? I’m not up to 90 minutes of hard effort, but maybe there are other newbies who are. Thanks!

    1. Use a test to determine your FTP and put it in your Zwift profile
    2. Start Zwift a few minutes before the scheduled ride, and on the start page (to the right of where you select course and ride type) see and select the scheduled group ride by title
    3. Select start
    4. We all sit in a corral while we are warming up and take off as a group when the ride starts - its automatic
    5. You simply follow the power target instructions that show in your display. It guides you how hard to ride for each timed segment of the workout - super simple
    6. (optional) Chat with folks and send messages if you'd like, from your computer or phone based zwift companion.

    You don't have to worry about being fast or slow compared to others. It's all based personally for you on your FTP so that we all experience about the same "difficulty". Regardless of how powerful/fast we are in the real world, we are all kept in a group in the ride automatically (unless you stop pedaling for many seconds). If you've put in the wrong FTP, or are very tired, you can use the workout summary on the left side of the screen at any time during the workout to "drop" your FTP and that will ease the ride for you. Likewise, you can increase it.... ha!

    Agree with all of the above. The b squad boys were impressed with the numbers this morning. 150+ people started and we held around 100 through to the very end. If anyone has major zwift questions feel free to toss them on here. The rides adjust based on your abilities. Your abilities are determined with an ftp test. You can find this on the opening screen through the workouts option. We are trying to get them a little later in the morning. But it's a good way to start your Saturday. We just started a 24 week program to build long rides up to 3-4 hours.

    Pretty sure that it would not have been a rooster that bitched about it. Good grief.

    Does it have to be reported or do they have robots monitoring the chat?

    I dont know. I said "f*ck" I think jordan scrolls through the charts himself to check it out. I'm pretty sure our chat is the most active of everyone.

    I feel compelled to invoke the words of the one true Carlin.

    I would think due process allows you to request the exact infraction detail.

    Thank you @M_Ware (I met George in 2002 before a show and he signed my copy of one of his books). New favourite.
