Indoor training has been booming in these current difficult times, and that’s been reflected in the huge growth of the club’s Zwift racing team, complementing our existing Zwift social rides and other activities on the popular Zwift online training platform.
The club’s race team has been participating in the Zwift Racing League (ZRL), which involves over 1700 teams and some 10,000 racers from all around the world. We had one team competing in ZRL late in 2020, but from January 2021 we now have four teams racing every week, both women and men of all ages, with over 25 club members taking part. We’re probably the biggest Zwift racing team in the area, and certainly the friendliest.
It’s very easy to join in with the racing if you’re already on Zwift, and even if you’re not we can give you advice about how to get started. It’s not only about serious racers (though we do have some of those!), it’s also about getting involved and seeing what happens when you push yourself, and we have teams at various levels. You may well surprise yourself with what you can do.
Zwift says that they enable you to “meet your fitness goals while having tons of fun on the way”, and we wouldn’t argue with that.
If racing really isn’t your cup of tea, then we have plenty of other Zwift activities such as our twice-weekly social rides, and at the time of writing we’re running a club league for the multi-stage Tour de Zwift.
