Group Ride with ITT on Zwift
This is a group meetup ride on Zwift for endurance mileage
In the comfort of your own pain cave, we will be using a variety of routes, usually using the hills and varied terrain.
Saturdays 8 am (UTC) 11th December 2022 until further notice (excluding 25th December)
You want some company and chat for a long steady ride
Using the group meetup feature of Zwift, we invite you to join us for a sociable steady ride on Zwift. The group is kept together to stay as part of the pack regardless of your level.
If you haven't used this before, it can be a little strange; it's as if you are attached by elastic to the group leader. If you ride at lower power (w/kg) than the leader, you will slowly lose time, then all of a sudden, the elastic kicks in and you are shot back into the group. The same goes for those at the front.
You only get dropped if you stop pedalling.
You can late join up top 30min after the start time, and you can leave any time you want.
During the ride, we will introduce a few varied moderate efforts consistent with the philosophy of a Long Steady Duration ride (LSD); again, you cannot get dropped.
The conversation will likely be triathlon or training related, recent events or bad jokes; we are avoiding politics!! Unless it's in a joke.
