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.

Hi All,

A reminder to update Zwift if you haven’t done it recently.  
If you miss the group start time, you can’t join after group started. But you can look for Tom’s name under people currently Zwifting  and join him that way.

If you want to talk during ride, use the microphone icon on your keyboard rather than typing.

Hi All,

A reminder to update Zwift if you haven’t done it recently.  
If you miss the group start time, you can’t join after group started. But you can look for Tom’s name under people currently Zwifting  and join him that way.

If you want to talk during ride, use the microphone icon on your keyboard rather than typing.

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.

Combining the powerful Urban 900 headlight and Vis Micro II compact tail light, this lighting package provides top level performance and revolutionary safety innovations. Bright amber sidelights gives the cyclist high visibility through intersections with daytime visible pulse patterns so a cyclist is clearly visible day or night.

Vis 180 Pro

The Vis 180 Pro defines premium rear lighting, providing cyclists unmatched protective visibility  with a distinct 180 degrees of dedicated lighting.  Powerful red LEDs coincide with hi-intensity amber side lighting giving commuters peace of mind to focus on the road ahead.  

Vis 360 Pro

A featherweight helmet light perfect for cyclists that demand the safety and protection of visibility from all angles. The Vis 360 Pro was designed in response to extensive research on commuter safety and has quickly won the heart of cyclists around the globe concerned about their visibility on roadways. 

Urban 500

The perfect bike headlight for city riders that want premium features with an entry level price.  High visibility is prioritized and the platform has dedicated amber sidelights that are distinct and easily recognizable by drivers, especially through intersections.  City riders will appreciate the exclusive SafePulse beam, scientifically designed to provide the highest level of rider awareness without the risks associated with flashing lights.

Re: Saint Patrick's Day ride - ZWIFT / ROUVY?

John Guido
 

I’ve not used Rouvy or Tacx app, since I usually just watch live or replays of race videos.  And, I just suspended my Zwift subscription. 

Tacx sent me this; but I doubt having their brand trainer is a prerequisite, and the free trial is 30 days.  

As things are ever changing I’d be up to try something different.

Stay well.

Cheers,
