This week we’ve selected an assortment of events that highlight some of the top endurance rides for this weekend.
🥇 Fearless Women’s Team Championship
The Fearless Women’s Team Championship is expected to be one of the largest women-only races on Zwift. This is the sixth year for the championship, and it is quite well-known amongst the racing community. According to the race organizer, over 700 riders participated in this event last year! The race is a points race, so we suggest reading the web page for details on scoring, categories, etc.
It is important to note that riders who are looking to participate must sign up through WTRL in order to access the event. Special race passes will be sent out to registrants in order to enter the race. The race will be live-streamed on the Zwift Community Live YouTube channel, and registration closes 1 hour prior to the event start.

🤝 The HERD Sunday Endurance
Every weekend, The HERD offers a longer endurance session to help encourage riders on longer rides. Ride leaders will provide their usual fun chatter throughout the ride to keep riders entertained and motivated. To assist riders who fall off the back, sweeps will be available and ready to bring riders back to the main group.
The ride will be paced at 1.5 w/kg on the flats and 2 w/kg on the climbs. Riders should expect to cover around 30-40 miles (48-64 km) on this ride. The ride will be 120 minutes on the Muir and The Mountain course in Watopia. Note: the course is quite hilly, so get ready to shift!

🤝 EZR Weekend Wind Down
EZR is known to offer some of the slowest group rides, which are often perfect for riders in the 0.8-1.5 w/kg range. During this ride, the leader will maintain within the 0.9-1.3 w/kg range. Like most group rides, sweepers will be in this ride to help riders who fall off the back of the main group.
The organizers highly suggest that you join their Discord to interact with riders throughout the ride. This week’s ride takes place over 60 minutes on the Tick Tock course in Watopia.

🥇Wahoo Le Col Saturday Series 2022/23 Season – Round 2
The final race of Zwift Racing League Round 2 is imminent! Riders will want to get every last point they can in this final race over 4-5 laps of Cobbled Climbs, and one of the best ways to prepare for a race is to recon the course. Wahoo Le Col is offering this recon race with the same distances as the real race on Tuesday.
Riders should expect this to be a highly competitive race, so anticipate a fast pace and lots of attacks! Be sure to check out the Zwift Insider article about this week’s course for all the details.

🤝 BanditZ Anti-social Social
The BanditZ Anti-social Social takes a pretty unique approach to group rides on Zwift. Typically, riders are “required” to stay near the leader at all times. However, in this group ride, riders are free to race, sprint, or just chill with the beacon. During this ride, a sweep team will be present to bring riders back to the main group.
The beacon will remain at a steady pace of around 1.5-1.7 w/kg. The pace will fluctuate based on the terrain. This week’s ride will be on the Quatch Quest course in Watopia, one of the toughest courses on Zwift. In just 29 miles (46 kilometers), riders will ascend over 5,000 feet (1500 meters) of elevation!

I just want a better idea of when and where the jersey unlocks are. I have the majority of the readily accessible ones – but the app and site are poor to give this information! Zwifthacks is ok, but need a more central area for us specific hunters!
sometimes you have to do the event to know, or waste 3 hours finding the creators and ask them, just to be told no.
Hi have a look here The at Home Cycling & Running Virtual Training App (zwift.com)
list all the events with jersey unlocks
Zwift Hacks in generally the best place to find events that offer kit unlocks, but I will definitely look and feature an event with a kit unlock if the kit is a special, limited edition one.
