Our picks for this weekend are a nice mixture, from social rides to structured training to full-out racing.
Team Electric Spirit Co. Aperitivi Series Round 1
“Join Team Electric Spirit Co. for the second season of the Aperitivi, a fast and furious 9 race series every Saturday. Each week we will run over a shortened (where possible) version of that week’s Zwift Racing League course, making it the perfect chance for a little aperitivo for those racing on Tuesday, or just a great fun series for anyone else.
Best 7 from 9 results will count in the overall series with points allocated based on finishing position with a small number of bonus points allocated for first past the post and fastest through each segment on the course.”
Saturday, January 8 @ 4pm GMT/11am EST/8am PST

G7 Cycling Club CHINA Winter Challenge
This is a race on the PRL courses in London (choose between half or full versions). I’m highlighting this as I have seen plenty of group rides tackling the PRL Full, but never a race! This is one for the brave.

WHOOP Workout Series | Lionel Sanders Workouts
If you are looking to get back into shape after an indulgent festive period then it might be worth considering the WHOOP Workout Series.
WHOOP is offering structured training programmes over a 3-week period, and this week the programmes have been designed by Lionel Sanders, Canadian pro triathlete and the winner of the 2017 ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships.
WHOOP is a wearable fitness tracker that measures strain, recovery, and sleep.
Multiple times on Saturday and Sunday. See zwift.com/events/series/whoop-workout-series for upcoming events.
Rocacorba Cycling Social Ride
I am highlighting this event because the Rocacorba Collective is about “changing the very fabric of female pro cycling” Their mission is to “revolutionize the indoor e-cycling experience, creating a completely transparent and inclusive community that provides an inspiring, uplifting and safe space for women to come together on any level in cycling eSports; from beginner to World eSports Champion.”
Join them on their 60-minute ride in New York on the Park Perimeter Loop.
