Last Zwift Thursday race and a little trip around New York….
We are using Facebook Rooms rather than zoom to video chat whilst riding and so that non-zwifters can still join in and pedal with us. Facebook Room details will be published on the event on Facebook and the Website event. You wont need to be a Facebook user to enter the room.
Zwift Race Night, Thursday 19:00: Proper Zwift TT Event, albeit private. This means that it doesn’t appear on the companion app until you have signed up for it. This must being done using this link BSCC Private Event
This is a full TT with No Drafting, TT Start Pens with TT start times. It’s back on Tempus Fugit so how will your times compare to the tactical drafting races!
Saturday Gentle No Cafe Ride. 10am: New York “Might Metropolitan” New York’s “Mighty Metropolitan” is one of the longer routes on course, taking riders past the largest museum in the US, the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (Interesting note: “The Met” is the largest structure on the Zwift NY map. Apparently, this was never the plan, but it helps give us an appreciation for the footprint of the real thing.)
After passing the Met, you’ll ride over the Reservoir with its “Manhattan Megadome” on your way to the reverse KOM (1.14km, 5.9% grade). Come down from those heights to ground level and up Cathill Climb through the start/finish banner and your first lap is complete.. Zwift Route for information
Ride will use the Zwift Meetup with “Everyone stays together” function. This means you can work has hard as you like (or not) and everyone will stay together.
Sunday Zwift Badge Hunting Ride, 09:30: There will be no Zwift Badge Hunting ride this week. As the weather has started to improve, most people are sensibly heading out to “enjoy” our local roads!
For anyone not familiar with Zwift, here is a handy guide
