It’s summer in the Nothern Hemisphere, but Zwift isn’t slowing down! We’ve still got hundreds of daily events on the calendar, from weekly regulars to special one-offs. Here are 6 events this weekend you may want to check out.
Special thanks to Jesper at ZwiftHacks with his Events app which provides powerful event filtering tools that help us create this list each week.
Scott Celebration Group Ride
This event kicks of Scott Week, a celebration of all things cycling. Join a pile of pro athletes as well as hundreds of fellow Zwifters for a ride on London’s challening Triple Loops route! Three categories to choose from, with category A being the fastest and longest ride. Treat it like a casual group ride, or race with those who want to race. It’s all good!

Ride For #KaiFight77
This is charity ride is in support of BMX Elite Athlete Kai Sakakibara who crashed heavily in February 2020 sustaining a traumatic brain injury (read about his rehab progress here). The charity ride will be led by Kai’s sister, Saya Sakakibara. It will be 77 mins in length to reflect Kai’s permanent race number #77.

Norseman Group Rides and Runs
The Norseman 2020 Training Series has begun, and this weekend sees our first group rides and runs! There are multiple group ride times on Saturday, and multiple runs on Sunday. These aren’t races, but group events. Some will treat them as a race, but you do whatever you’d like!
