  • NYCC Zwift Rides

This is a pilot program to determine if there is enough interest in supporting Zwift rides. 

Are you interested in riding with a group even when it is too cold or wet to go outside?  Want to use your ear buds, watch tv, or use aerobars, and even chuck your helmet.    How about joining a Zwift ride?

You might have heard about Zwift but never tried it.  Zwift is a virtual indoor training tool, that has some elements of MMO games, with 7 virtual worlds.  Those worlds include a futurist version of Central Park, the 2019 UCI World Course from Yorkshire, past world courses from Innsbruck and Richmond, and the PRL London Course.

Most people use Zwift for training.  This will be an opportunity to ride with friends in real time, just like a group ride. The advantage is you are not exposed to the cold, wind, and rain.  There are also no crashes, unless you fall off your trainer.  There is also potentially no flats, if you are using a wheel off smart trainer.

The Requirements

  • You must be a member of the NYCC.
  • You need a Zwift subscription or 7-day trail.  For details on setting that up, go here: https://www.zwift.com/get-zwifting.
  • Install the Zwift app on your Windows/Apple Laptop, iOS or Android Device.
  • Have the requisite hardware. Check this link https://www.zwift.com/hardware
  • Download the Zwift Companion App to your iOS or Android Device.

After you have your subscription, you will need to follow the ride leader's Zwift account via the Zwift Companion app.  From the list of followers, They will verify your NYCC membership and then invite you to the meet up for the ride that you expressed interest to attend.
