It’s a big weekend on Zwift, and it includes the chance to ride alongside a living legend (see Mountain Massif event below). Our event picks this week are designed to get you enthused about riding indoors.
Stage 1: Get Rolling – Queen’s Highway
This offers the opportunity for people to test the waters of racing on Zwift.
There will be four races on different routes in September, and if you complete each one you’ll earn the “Get Rolling” badge for your efforts. Expect each race to be fun and fast!

RO4H Rookie Group Ride
For anyone new to Zwift, learning the ins and outs can be a daunting prospect. That is why I am highlighting this event to try, since it has the purpose of introducing new riders to the nuances of riding indoors.
As the description notes: “This led group ride is your opportunity to learn some of the fundamentals of Zwift group riding in a friendly, collegial, and non-judgmental atmosphere. The ultimate goal of this ride is to introduce some of the basics of group riding so you can learn how to find, ride with, and stay within the ride leaders peloton – the blob.”
It’s a 60-minute led ride, for all abilities, hosted on the “Libby Hill After Party” route.

Mountain Massif All-Star ride
This is a relaxed social event where there will be the opportunity to ride alongside some of the greats of cycling. This week in particular will feature the most successful Team Pursuit cyclist in history, Ed Clancy OBE, who has won gold with Team GB at three successive Olympics. This is your chance to ride and chat with Ed.
There will be no fence, so feel free to ride at the pace you desire. This event is hosted on the “Legends and Lava” route and will be paced roughly around 2 w/kg, keeping it steady until the Volcano climb, when people can climb at their own pace.
Complete the event and unlock the new “Mountain Massif” jersey.

LEQP Provence Badge Hunter Series
One great way to enjoy Zwift is to cycle the many routes and collect the badges that are on offer for completing them.
An even better way is to join a group of likeminded people and collect them together!
This is the objective of this popular ride led by our friends at LEQP Provence. This week’s ride tackles the 52.5km “Dust in the Wind” route on gravel bikes.
