Video: How to Start Riding on Zwift: The First Ride – New User Tutorial

Our favorite Aussie Lama Shane Miller has put together a video walk-through of Zwift from the perspective of a new user.

He doesn’t talk about setting up your bike, trainer, etc (although Shane covers those topics in depth elsewhere on his YouTube channel). He walks you through getting going on Zwift, beginning just after downloading the software and creating your account.

Along the way he covers pairing your equipment to Zwift, doing your first ride in Watopia (with added overlays to better explain things!), and some user setting optimization at the end for a better in-game experience.

If you’re just getting started on Zwift, this video will give you the orientation needed to Zwift like a seasoned pro. Ride on!

Locked in trial mode post payment. Sent email 3days ago. No luck. Zwift’s success could be their downfall. Internet search indicates I am not alone.

Thanks! Any videos that show how to set up the different trainers and link them to Zwift? My mom used to go to 🚴 Spin! 🚴 classes at the gym. Already has a PC but very little computer knowledge (mostly uses for facebook). Need something super user friendly. Not sure her computer has bluetooth (she wasn’t sure). Maybe easier to get an apple TV?

Apple TV or i-pad/i-phone (which can be mirrored on a larger tv screen if desired) are both very simple options. I’m sure Shame also has a video on using Apple TV for Zwifting.
