Zwiftcast Episode 78: Peak Zwift Revisited, Community Reaction to the Virus + Operation Cofidis

The Zwiftcasters are working from home! But then we always do 🙂 Simon, Shane, and Nathan are back together to discuss how the extraordinary events of the past weeks have been personally impacting them, the sport they love – and the cycling game that is providing both escape from, and therapy for, a troubled world.

That doesn’t mean we are ignoring the virus – that’s impossible. And we hope Listeners understand that we can’t not talk about what everyone is talking about.

In light of the huge surge of Zwifters onto the platform, many of them new, the Zwiftcast has re-opened the Peak Zwift Guessing Game. Tune in to see how big Simon, Shane, and Nathan think the surge will be.

The importance of online communities in these difficult times is elevated and the chaps discuss how the Zwift Community is responding, with increased participation in events and lots of special guest pro riders turning up and helping to foster a sense of togetherness.

And we have the full extraordinary story of how Zwift staff negotiated their way through a locked-down quarantine zone in the UAE to bring some relief to pro riders stranded in their hotel rooms by the virus.

These are difficult and distressing times… but remember: you never feel worse after a bike ride. We hope you enjoy listening.

About The Author

Simon Schofield

Simon lives in Leeds, in the North of England, where grey, wet winters drive him indoors to ride. An early Zwift adopter, one day he idly wondered whether the fast-growing virtual cycling world would sustain a podcast. Fifty-plus episodes later - he has his answer - there's always something to talk about! Simon's a journalist by trade and spent many years working in TV production. He's at his happiest either drafting a big pack in Watopia or plunging down an Alpine descent with the sun in his face and the wind at his back.
