If you follow road or track cycling at all, you’ll know who Geraint Thomas is: a multiple World Champ on the track, and a two-time Olympic gold medalist there as well. Oh yeah–he also won the Tour de France in 2018.

He’s also a Zwifter–you probably saw him in the “Fun is Fast” campaign.

Now, thanks to the magic of Zwift, we all have a chance to ride with Geraint. He’ll be leading a group ride with Eric Min on Watopia’s Sand and Sequoias route next Thursday at 11:30am PT. (Many Zwifters will already be riding this route next week, since it’s featured for stage 3 of Tour de Zwift! But who would turn down the chance to ride with G for a quick lap?)

Route Details

The ride is on Watopia’s Sand and Sequoias route which begins in the Fuego Flats desert then takes you through the twisty, rolling Titans Grove preserve.

Officially the route is 12.6 miles (20.2km) long with 482′ (147m) of climbing, but there’s a flat lead-in at the beginning of approximately 1.5 miles (2.5km).


Riders of all ages and skill levels are invited. This will be a large group ride, with faster riders naturally moving to the front while slower riders move to the back. Go at your own pace, or try to ride next to Eric or Geraint so you can be sure to see messages from both.

See you on course!
