Welcome to the PBC Zwifters Ride!
ATTENTION: Those who register and attend Zwift rides will receive credit for attending these club rides. Members with a high attendance record may be awarded certain rewards at our Annual Membership Meeting, Auction & Party event held each year in December.
Now that the weather is going to hinder our ability to get out and ride safely, we can all still ride together while in the comfort of our own homes. We'll ride in the virtual world of Zwift and we'll start in Innsbruck, Austria.
To be prepared to ride in a virtual world, we are listing below the things you will need to do ahead of time to create the best indoor riding experience for yourself. Combine Zwift with Cycling Fusion's Winter Training
starting January 13, 2019 and you'll be more than ready when Spring arrives.
On the day of the ride, we highly recommend you log into your Zwift account 5-10 minutes before the ride start time
. This will help to make sure your gear is ready to go. The ride leaves promptly at the scheduled time.
