Andy is back! In March, I had the fortune of interviewing Tour de France Champion, Andy to discuss his weekly ride on Zwift, the “Andy Schleck Cycles Cappuccino Ride” (read that interview here.)
The event took a hiatus over the summer but now is restarting tomorrow, 7th December, 8pm CET/2pm EST/11am PST.
I will be attending to hear what he has been doing over the last few months, and I’m hopeful that he will be accompanied by his old crew of event facilitator Joel and Andy’s brother Frank, which some of you may know.
About the Ride
The event lasts 1 hour is hosted on the Sand and Sequoias route, which Andy says is his favourite on Zwift. This is a very leisurely group ride paced at 1-2.4 w/kg, so it is accessible for all (including those who enjoy racing like myself, since it makes a perfectly-paced recovery ride).
Overall, it is a relaxed ride with good conversation, including funny stories from Andy’s past and present cycling adventures. As a result, this ride quickly became one of my favourite on Zwift.

Potential Jersey Unlock
The ride is showing a new “Andy Schleck Cappuccino Kit” as the event jersey in Companion, so it looks like we’ll all be riding in style now that Andy has finally managed to get his custom jersey in game!
Those of you who joined Andy’s rides earlier in the year will remember he was waiting on his design to be created by Zwift and it looks like during Andy’s summer break, they have managed to do just that. And that’s great news, because a ride this good deserves a custom kit.
