  • STW Zwift meet ups and races – Autumn/winter 2022

    The evenings are getting darker and Zwift is getting more popular again.

    The idea of this thread is to get some meet-ups and races going over Autumn and Winter.

    At the moment I don’t think there will be a race series this side of Xmas. Although I can do Tuesday evenings the admin burden is quite large and I don’t have time at the moment. But that doesn’t stop us having meet-ups or some ad hoc races.

    If you want to join the STW Zwift Club the link is below:

    https://www.zwift.com/clubs/fcbd9c17-1ff8-4477-8104-3408856e0084/home

    First meet-up is on Tuesday (27th) with a no drop ride with optional sprints around London.

    If you would like to lead an event or want a event put on the calendar post up here!

    Just getting over another bout of covid, so not too worried about the lack of racing at the moment, defo up for a social ride though! Need to get the Zwift cave sorted first as it’s not exactly ready to ride at the mo 😀

    I’m looking forward to it, as the keystone of my winter training.

    My Zwift bike is currently adorned with many inner tubes that need patching (I’m pretty lazy about it… )

    This might be the kick in the jacksy I need to sort it all out 🙂

    i cancelled my zwift membership in the early part of this year. STW races will make me re-new it, so i will hold out until they reappear.

    I appreciate it must take up a fair chunk of your free time tho Robbo, so understand why we might not see them until post crimbo.

    If i do fire up my subscription anytime soon, i will see you chaps in the pens for some socials.

    Will zwift erase all my previously accumulated bikes and data after a certain period of time if I don’t re subscribe?
    I could do with setting up my trainer as well.

    Definitely up for this, social rides and racing (now I’m at a level where I’m a bit competitive!).

    👍. I’ve had a quick look on the zwift website and I couldn’t see any time limit on reactivating an account either.

    Sounds good to me, I got back on the turbo yesterday morning after something of a hiatus and it was a bit of a system shock!

    Can’t see me making it matey… it’s dry here and i’m taking my lad to the woods to get his suspension done..would be rude not to ride myself.

    I’d love to join but 7.30 will be too early for me.
    Do you think I can join halfway through?

    robbo1234biking

    Late join is on so you can join up to 30 minutes late I believe. Late join can be a bit ropey sometimes but it is worth a try!

    I’d like to join but WTRL is at the same time – a TTT today. Hopefully in a few weeks I can jump on the STW train.

    I’m in. A nice warm up before Tuesday Night Football. Set up in the Zwift garage is a lot more straight forward that the real world @weeksy 😉 I hope you get your lad’s bike dialled in.

    Ok. I’ll see you at 8 assuming late join works ok!

    I think I will be joining you all for a bit of silliness. 🙂

    Girlfriend is using the turbo for a race this evening, so depends how long that takes if I can join. Is this something I should be warmed up for before we begin, or will it be a gentle start?

    Won’t make this, I’ve got a sore throat, sniffles, a bit achey, and a close family member has the ‘rona.

    Yay.

    Hopefully I can get over it in a few days.

    Gentle start so no need for warm up before hand.

    Only 400w out the start gates Vs 600w then? 🤣😁

    I couldn’t find the event 🙁

    Cheers folks. Sort of enjoyed that. Sorry about the chain, I was hoping to get winter “a few more rides” from those chain rings

    No one likes a torn ring, dangeourbrain!

    Some good sprint action tonight! Good riding all!!

    ajaydoubleyou – there is a link somewhere in this thread, rather than it being on the Zwift dashboard.

    Thanks all, that was good fun.

    ajaydoubleyou – if you join the STW club on Zwift the meet-up invite should be in there.

    Finally, for something a little similar there is an AHDR Euro ride at 7pm on Wednesday evenings. Typically 30-40km total, first two thirds in a nice pack and all very steady then the final third is either to continue with the pack or race off the front.

    Thanks for that.
    I’m glad I was only there for half of it!

    Also I see my application to join STW is pending. Is there some sort of initiation ceremony that I have to undergo?

    You have to laugh at one of Keith’s jokes. So far no one has passed.

    Not sure if it’s a numbers cap thing, I can ban you or revoke your invite but I can’t approve it 🤷🏻

    That said being zwift I probably need to be using apple TV via Snapchat

    This is borderline bullying 🤣🥳
    I need to work on next week’s material (I didn’t even tell any jokes tonight!!!)

    Edit – Just explained this online abuse to my Wife and she just laughed (at me, not with me).

    So if anyone is interested I’ve popped a Sunday hills on. Nice easy one to get back into it.

    Sunday hills, the return https://www.zwift.com/events/view/3156577

    Three little sisters.

    <30k and <500m across three climbs.

    Enjoyed it, thanks for the tow back on too. 45 min was enough for me and a bit of a wake up call to my idleness over September.

    Just as a bit of a heads-up/reminder about the “Club” events. I am not sure if this peculiar to my ‘notification’ setting in the companion app or just a Zwift ‘thing’ but perhaps useful to some…

    Even if you get a notification for a club ride, The club invites don’t appear in the normal events location (either tapping orange Events banner, or going to menu (3 lines) and then events).
    You have to go into Menu>Clubs, then choose the STW club, then Club Events within there.

    It’s not that obvious – well, I didn’t think it was.

    that’ll be it. I could see it on my phone, and it said I was going, but when I fired up the zwift set up I couldnt find the event and it didnt offer me the chance to join. (I’ve only done a few zwifts over the summer since the menu layout changed, thought I was just being stupid.)
    I see I have now been allowed into the club, hope for better luck next week.

    @dangeourbrain -looks like just the two of us tomorrow for Sunday Hills. Are you intending to ride whatever?

    I might end up laying-in….🥱🤫
