HBC is now on ZWIFT

HBC members are on Zwift!

Do you want to maintain your cycling fitness level even when the winter weather won’t cooperate?  One of the available options is Zwift, an online training app that you pair with indoor cycling equipment to produce a realistic virtual ride.

For now, we’d like to communicate a riding opportunity on Zwift.

HBC veteran Gavin Robertson is leading several Zwift rides per week.  They are typically about 40 miles in length with a couple of climbs, but you can drop off at any time or distance.   Best of all, these rides can be done by any rider at any level.  Using Zwift’s “rubber band” feature, the rides are set these up so that A, B, C, and D riders can all ride together without anyone being dropped.  Gavin reports that riders of all skill levels are winning KOMs (king of the mountain) awards and sprint jerseys, and the rides are fun and very chatty. 

If you’re interested in joining Gavin on these rides and already have your indoor cycling gear set up, just search for “Gavin Robertson HBC” on Zwift.  Tap the + (plus) button to ask to follow Gavin.  He will confirm your request and you can then accept ride notices for virtual Zwift rides with his group.
