We’re Burning Rubber on Zwift Today

We’re Burning Rubber on Zwift Today

It’s April 1st, Zwifters!

Zwift traditionally does something zany for April Fool’s Day. In 2018 we played Paperboy, 2017 we had big heads, 2016 gave us the old-timey effect, and 2015 we rode big wheels on Jarvis. What about today?

Today we’re burning rubber, sort of a “Back to the Future” effect.

How do you do it? Well, I haven’t figured that out yet. It’s definitely based on effort level, but I’m not sure what the algorithm is, as I’m seeing flames activated at a range of w/kg and wattages. See if you can figure out how it works and comment below!

Oh, and if you want to see some real fireworks, join a group ride:
