Many RCC members enjoy riding on trainers and make use of Zwift or other training programs, especially during winter. Indoor cycling has taken off in recent years and we invite all RCC members to join in the fun! Watch our Facebook page for news about indoor cycling events.
Zwift group rides are hosted by HPL Cycling every Sunday. Unless otherwise stated, the rides will be of the keep together variety. This way no matter how much effort you put out you will always stay in the group, unless you stop peddling. You can even incorporate your regular workout into the ride if you like. The rides will be setup to run for two hours. You can leave anytime but you will need to be there for the start as you can’t join a meetup late.
The person in charge of the meetup can only invite people who follow them. In order to get an invite please follow these three people on Zwift:
Paul Cutting, Steve Bass, Kelly Chimilar
Here is a tutorial by member Paul Cutting that shows how to follow someone on Zwift: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uq2FzLgG3c
Accepting the meetup invite:
Just like any other Zwift event you can accept your meetup invite through the Zwift Companion app or in the top right corner of the Zwift startup screen. Here is another tutorial by member Paul Cutting showing how to accept the meetup invite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LahX0-YeP1Y
Be on time. There is no late joining of meetup rides in Zwift.
The prompt to join the meetup will appear on your screen 5 minutes before the start time of the event.
Zwift group chat can be a bit problematic while riding. To get around this we will communicate on an app called Discord. Details on Discord can be found here: https://zwiftinsider.com/using-discord/
Once you have Discord installed on your phone you can join the HPL Cycling voice channel via this link: https://discord.gg/HbAMzj6
