Despite the improving weather here in the Northern Hemisphere, there are several reasons to continue to log the kilometres on Zwift. Here are four.
Zwift Insider Rebel Race
This is the first ever race series hosted by Zwift Insider and full details can be read here.
There are three events spread over the weekend, two on Saturday and one on Sunday (GTM, at least), giving you the chance to race the “Rebel Routes” which have now made it into Zwift’s official list of courses.
The first event is hosted on the Downtown Titans route. This is 24km long with two short hills which no doubt will split the field. Events are filling up and I have highlighted a Saturday race to try!

YC Podcast Ride – Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
To celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Zwift are hosting numerous events throughout the month (read more here).
On Saturday join other Zwifters for a podcast featuring YC, Zwift’s Chief Product Officer. This is a 60-minute timed event on Makuri Islands’ Chasing the Sun route, and it will be fascinating to ride and listen to what YC has to say. I hope he talks about his work, as it will be interesting to hear what it entails.
Saturday, May 7 – Multiple Timeslots

KISS Racing – The Classic 100 – Category Enforcement
Fancy a long race? Then this event is for you. Depending on your Category, it’s either 4 or 5 laps of “Downtown Titans” route, which totals 99.4km to 124km. Either way, it’s a long old way.
BC Bike Race Sunday Endurance Workout
This event caught my eye because it is rather different. It is 90 minutes of structured training, hosted on the Jungle Circuit Reverse.
The event description states this session is “designed to help build your endurance during the winter months in preparation for the summer.”
Sunday, May 8 – 5pm BST/12pm EDT/9am PDT
