For those that have taken part in the Zwift sessions so far or plan to in the future we are going to add some functionality to talk to each other rather than type messages on Zwift.
The App we will use to facilitate this is called Discord and is available on all popular platforms. The recommended use with Zwift is on a phone with headphones that have a microphone whilst you Zwift on another devise (laptop for example).
After you have installed the Discord App to join our “Channel” you need to click on the invite link: https://discord.gg/uJdeYfd
The attached instructions cover how to join our “Channel” and the correct settings to select. Any questions please email or message me.

Join us tomorrow evening, Monday 30th March, at 8.00pm for another Zwift Interval session which this week will be “The McCarthy”
Reminder of the key points:
- Follow me on Zwift so I can invite you
- Don’t be late (Zwift doesn’t let you join the Meet Up late)
- Select the Workout Session (The McCarthy) after you join the Meet Up but before the ride starts (you have 5 minutes, plenty of time)
See everybody tomorrow!
We are adding in a Time Trial event on Zwift that will be part of Club Championship. Point’s will be awarded in 2 categories – Men and Women. The course is 8km in length with 236m of climbing (last 2km) so hopefully it fair. You get no assistance from drafting so it is exactly like a Time Trial event…
You will just need to sign up to the race which zwift host at set times during the week and then provide your time to Ed Bucky. You can obviously repeat the event to try to improve your time.
We will announce more details on Monday. Please join in on the Zwift training/social rides to get a bit of practice in!
