Re: Group rides - input needed

Dave,
  • Wheelmen have cancelled all rides until further notice. Ride calendar clear through April
  • Zwift Meetup is a viable option. We had a good group with Tom C this past Sunday
I have no issue riding with a normal size BBC group providing we be cautionary:
  1. No snot rockets
  2. If you need to cough or sneeze, pull out of the paceline.
  3. If you think you may be compromised.....just don't show up

How do you maintain proper social distancing when you are breathing the exhaust of the rider in front of you?  

What is a safe distance?

Groups of 4 riders at a time?

What are the pro’s doing? Other clubs?

Organize time trials with a 1 minute spacing?

Cross winds vs. head or tail winds?

Dave,

 

You ask good questions and I have been following many other forums on this same topic and they have the same questions.  The 1 minute spacing seems to be the most talked about as long as the group can keep a consistent pace.   The folks on GCN tried to address this on their YouTube channel:

I am still sequestered in Michigan since my brothers passing, taking care of Mom, so best to everyone coming up with a plan.  I plan on being back on the bike and zwift in April.

FW: Ride with Us on Zwift and Win Some Prizes!

Terri Brei
 

Hello BBC from Greenville, SC… thinking of you all in my hometown.  As you might guess, Hincapie is pretty big here and, in an effort to lend some fun to indoor riding, I’m forwarding the email I received last week.  If you’ve done one of his Gran Fondos, you’ve likely received the invite as well.  Thought some of you Zwifters might have fun with it, I haven’t tried it personally.

 

Be safe,

Terri Brei

Keep Your Distance. Join Us for a Weekly Zwift Ride!

We believe we have a responsibility to follow the social distancing protocol. We don't believe that means we have to stop riding. So, let's have some fun on Zwift!

Join George Hincapie, Rich Hincapie,and members of the Hincapie staff and ambassadors for our weekly rides occurring 7:20 p.m. EST each Wednesday. Each ride is created by Hincapie ambassador Nick Mossing, a USAC Level 3 Coach.

Did Someone Say Prizes?

To make things a little more fun, we're throwing in some contests. Each week, we'll ask a trivia question during the ride. Answer that question on our Facebook page for a chance to win prizes from Honey Stinger, Road ID, Hincapie Sportswear, and other partners.

On Instagram, post a selfie on your trainer during one of the rides and tag @hincapiesports ,@honeystinger , and @roadid with hashtags #ridehincapie , #rideinside, and #sweetentheburn for a chance to win the same prize packs.

Each week we'll randomly choose a winner from Facebook and Instagram. These winners will also be invited to a virtual work out with George Hincapie himself!

No matter your age or your skill level, you are invited to join us for a ride. It’s sure to be a challenge, but also a lot of fun!

Zwift going though reorganization to grow

Ron Vargo
 

Hello fellow Zwifters, found this article today:

 

https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2020/03/zwift-lays-off-employees-in-move-to-focus-on-developing-new-hardware.html

 

Looks like Zwift is gong after the bigger companies here.  While they are strong they may be developing their own hardware to go after Peloton and others.

Dumb trainer needed

Sheri Rosenbaum
 

This group has been so awesome in donating items you no longer use to Dare2Tri. For this I’m so grateful. 

Does anyone have a dumb trainer collecting dust? The dad of one of the athletes is looking for a dumb trainer for his daughter’s hand cycle. If anyone has one collecting dust and would like to donate it to a good home, please email me. The dad will pick it up, no in person contact needed to keep everyone safe. 

Thanks
Sheri

Jon Ogden
 

I’ve only finished that climb once or twice.  Part of the problem is unless you pick a starting route that starts close to the jungle, it take a good 20 to 25 minutes of riding just to get to the start of the climb.  Then the climb is a good hour to hour and 15 minutes of straight up.  Zwift has some cool graphics on the climb that they don’t use anywhere else.  So it’s fun to do.

I figured out how to create and send out a meetup request in Zwift this morning. Sorry I gave you a 30 min notice. I just created a 33 mi ride tomorrow morning at 9:00am on the Island of Watopia. The course is "Bigger Loop". If you are not linked to me in Zwift search "Tom Cramer" United States.

 

Bigger Loop” is a modified version of Zwift’s “Big Loop” which basically adds ~11km of flat road to the start of the route. Released as part of Zwift’s Fuego Flats desert expansion, this route features the new desert roads as well as the Epic KOM, Jungle Circuit, and portions of Volcano flat.

 

Course Profile

 

Begin in Watopia’s downtown, then hang a left from Ocean Boulevard to head toward Fuego Flats. Enjoy the desert sites, descend through the redwoods, then hang a left to attack the Epic KOM. It’s gonna hurt!

 

Descending the KOM then turning left to the jungle, you will hit the circuit and climb back out before descending down to sea level. Your climbing is finished: now it’s time for the flat run-in to the finish, by way of the Volcano flat route.

 

In summary: 15km of flat followed by 30km of climbing or ascending, ending with 10km of flat. That’s “Bigger Loop”.

 

The course profile makes this an appealing route for a longer race. Climbers will be able to get away on the Epic KOM, but heavier riders with higher watts may be able to chase them back over the jungle roads and final flat kilometers.

 

Level Locked

 

You must be level 10 or above to access Bigger Loop in a free ride. Alternatively, you can join a group ride held on this route–but Big Loop group rides are rare.

Unfortunately no it can’t be used in Zwift. You are limited to their worlds. Even in Meetup mode.

I can provide the St Pats route but don’t think it would be that much fun. Better routes to use.

Yes Tom. Thanks for organizing the ride.  Great job everyone! 

 I've done both climbs and find both challenging.  A climb is as hard or as easy as you make it. Ride On all!

Unfortunately no it can’t be used in Zwift. You are limited to their worlds. Even in Meetup mode.

I can provide the St Pats route but don’t think it would be that much fun. Better routes to use.

Yes. It was fun. Good to ride with you guys as it’s been over 2.5 years since my bike has been outside due to my injuries. Hopefully I’ll be back this summer. 

Now, John, you have to try the Alpe du Zwift. The Epic KOM is easy compared to this climb.

I figured out how to create and send out a meetup request in Zwift this morning. Sorry I gave you a 30 min notice. I just created a 33 mi ride tomorrow morning at 9:00am on the Island of Watopia. The course is "Bigger Loop". If you are not linked to me in Zwift search "Tom Cramer" United States.

 

Bigger Loop” is a modified version of Zwift’s “Big Loop” which basically adds ~11km of flat road to the start of the route. Released as part of Zwift’s Fuego Flats desert expansion, this route features the new desert roads as well as the Epic KOM, Jungle Circuit, and portions of Volcano flat.

 

Course Profile

 

Begin in Watopia’s downtown, then hang a left from Ocean Boulevard to head toward Fuego Flats. Enjoy the desert sites, descend through the redwoods, then hang a left to attack the Epic KOM. It’s gonna hurt!

 

Descending the KOM then turning left to the jungle, you will hit the circuit and climb back out before descending down to sea level. Your climbing is finished: now it’s time for the flat run-in to the finish, by way of the Volcano flat route.

 

In summary: 15km of flat followed by 30km of climbing or ascending, ending with 10km of flat. That’s “Bigger Loop”.

 

The course profile makes this an appealing route for a longer race. Climbers will be able to get away on the Epic KOM, but heavier riders with higher watts may be able to chase them back over the jungle roads and final flat kilometers.

Bigger Loop” is a modified version of Zwift’s “Big Loop” which basically adds ~11km of flat road to the start of the route. Released as part of Zwift’s Fuego Flats desert expansion, this route features the new desert roads as well as the Epic KOM, Jungle Circuit, and portions of Volcano flat.

 

Course Profile

 

Begin in Watopia’s downtown, then hang a left from Ocean Boulevard to head toward Fuego Flats. Enjoy the desert sites, descend through the redwoods, then hang a left to attack the Epic KOM. It’s gonna hurt!

 

Descending the KOM then turning left to the jungle, you will hit the circuit and climb back out before descending down to sea level. Your climbing is finished: now it’s time for the flat run-in to the finish, by way of the Volcano flat route.

 

In summary: 15km of flat followed by 30km of climbing or ascending, ending with 10km of flat. That’s “Bigger Loop”.

 

The course profile makes this an appealing route for a longer race. Climbers will be able to get away on the Epic KOM, but heavier riders with higher watts may be able to chase them back over the jungle roads and final flat kilometers.

 

Level Locked

 

You must be level 10 or above to access Bigger Loop in a free ride. Alternatively, you can join a group ride held on this route–but Big Loop group rides are rare.

Unfortunately no it can’t be used in Zwift. You are limited to their worlds. Even in Meetup mode.

I can provide the St Pats route but don’t think it would be that much fun. Better routes to use.
