FVBSC Goes Virtual with ZWIFT
During this COVID-19 period, the Fox Valley Bicycle & Ski Club (FVBSC) offers group rides (called “Meetups”) this winter using the ZWIFT online gaming program dedicated to indoor cycling. Think: Mario Kart on bikes, but with more sweat! For interested FVBSC members with the necessary equipment, ZWIFT'ing means you never have to ride inside alone again ... unless you just need some space. (NOTE: ZWIFT Meetups are different than the Singles Social Club on www.meetup.com).
ZWIFT rides are posted in the RIDE AND EVENT CALENDAR and you will need to sign up for a ride in advance to be included in the ride. To get started, download the ZWIFT app, the ZWIFT Companion app, and the DISCORD app. We will use the ZWIFT Meetup feature to schedule and perform the rides and will use DISCORD to communicate during each ride. This gives us something that fairly closely simulates one of our group rides.
