Zwift Into High Gear!
If you’ve ever been interested in virtual riding, this is for you. We will be hosting weekly weekend Zwift races at our Arden Hills location! One race on Saturday, one race on Sunday. All you need to do is provide your bike. We provide the trainers, Zwift accounts, and heckling if you can handle it! Don’t let the name scare you away though, while we will be participating in a zwift “race”, this is meant to be a good time for anyone who is interested. Nobody will be dropping you to ride home on your own, we’ll all be in the same space together!
Zwift is an online riding world that you can connect to your smart trainer for a personalized virtual riding experience. Within Zwift are group rides and races that you can simply show up for to participate, no racing license or fee required! We have four Zwift stations available for weekly races that we will be filling every week. But there’s a fifth trainer station set up, who might that be for?
The Rider to Beat
You’ve heard them talking smack from the back of the spin room, but now it’s time to put them to the test. Come and race against your favorite Now staff members! Each race we will have a different staff member as the “rider to beat”. Check the schedule to see who you want to duke it out against!
