VIRTUAL GROUP RIDE ON ZWIFT THURSDAY 1/31 @6:15PM

Come join us in the virtual world of Zwift at 6:15 for a 90 minute group ride targeting an endurance pace (2.0-2.5 w/kg). The loop features the climb up Watopia’s volcano where we will open things up to a more competitive pace and regroup at the top. The first and last 10 minutes of the ride will stay in a 1.5-2.0 w/kg effort to warm up and cool down.

In order to join the Meetup you need to be following “Jimmi H. Stedman” on Zwift. Tonight’s ride is featuring the “Volcano Climb” route in Watopia.

You are welcome to join us from home or bring your trainer and Zwift device to join us in the shop.

Please make sure to wear the black and yellow bumblebee jersey named “basic 1” to help identify the folks in the group.

Introducing virtual Thursday Night Group Rides on Zwift

The shop is beginning weekly virtual group rides on Zwift at 6:15pm. The rides will use Zwift’s meetup feature and will generally be hosted by Jimmi @ Jimmi H. Stedman. Follow Jimmi on Zwift to be able to receive the meetup invitation. The rides will be at an endurance pace featuring some competitive sectors followed by regrouping stops. As the ride grows we hope to be able to offer multiple group options for riders with different strength or goals.

We ask that you wear the “bumblebee” jersey called Basic 1 to help identify other people on the ride.

You are welcome to join us from home or bring your trainer and Zwift device (laptop computer, tablet, etc.) into the shop to enhance the social component of these virtual rides.

There are a few demo smart trainers from Tacx and Cycleops in the shop available for reservation for these rides. Please call the shop at 401-789-8664 or email info@westedman.com if you would like to try a smart trainer.
