A while back we asked the Zwift Riders Facebook group, “What makes Zwifters special?” We received hundreds of responses… here is our first selection of 25 favorites:


  1. Pat O’Neill: Your Strava followers ask you if you are on vacation in Watopia, and when you will be back…
  2. Kenny Suh: You get your news from ZNN.
  3. Jon Hazen: One of your friends says “indoor miles don’t count”…
    And you’re no longer friends.
  4. Søren Andersen: Before sleep each night you think about which race or ride you will join when you wake up 🙏
  5. Daren Chandisingh: It’s freezing outside but you’ve got three fans going.
  6. Mark Minn: Your trainer cost more than your bike.
  7. Josh Baum: Your TV isn’t for watching TV.
  8. Mark Smith: You have three bikes and no mid thigh tan line.
  9. Niloc Forester: You dread the summer coming because you have no excuse to zwift.

  19. Tom Lockhart: You hear the word “Neo” and the first thing you think of ISN’T the Matrix trilogy.
  20. Matthew Reschke: Your watts say race season, but the hair on your legs says off-season.
  21. Colin Peerman: You ride your bike for 3 hours and it has no wheels on it.
  22. Thomas Eichentopf: You visit Innsbruck, New York, Richmond, London, and the first thing you do is to check out the Zwift routes.
