PERFORMANCE BIKE Great Ride Winter Series

How to Start Riding with Zwift
You will need an indoor trainer
Suggested Trainers: click here
Go to Zwift.com and click the "Download" link in the upper right-hand corner. You can join for a 14 day free trial or join for a $10 per month membership which lets you use more features than the trial. After downloading and installing the game:
CREATE AN ACCOUNT Do not attempt to log in to the website first as you will not have a password yet.
You also cannot run Zwift from zwift.com.LOG IN Once an account is created, you can log in!
If an event or group ride is scheduled to occur in the next hour, it will be listed at the top right hand corner of your “Ride” screen once you are in the game. To join, just click on the event you would like to join.
When it’s nearing time for the event to start, you’ll see a popup letting you know it’s time to officially join and get to the starting line. You can click “Let’s Go” or just let it auto-select to teleport automatically to the starting gate so there’s no need to get off the bike to click anything. You can also click “JOIN EVENT” at the bottom left for up to an hour before an event officially starts. It’s best to be pedaling at least a few minutes before the official start time. Finally, you’ll be brought in from the course to the starting area where you can warm up on a virtual trainer before the ride begins.
MOBILE LINK if you’re using the Zwift Mobile Link (Download a free app from Google Play or Apple ITunes) to join a ride, you can follow along here: joining an event via the mobile app overlaps with how you join it via a computer and it’s just as simple. Is also comes with the benefit of allowing you to RSVP to an event further in advance.
Once you log in to the mobile app, tap the menu button in the top-left corner of the screen. Tap the Events button to bring up the Events listing. Find the event you want to RSVP for and tap the header.
GRS/Zwift Ride is named: Performance Bike Great Ride Winter Series
