Zwift 2024 was created by Luke GJ Potter
Following on from last years Zwift 2023 thread, where we created the Orwell Zwift Club.

No one wants to go back on the Turbo Trainer after the long Summer, but alas it's an inevitability due shortening daylight hours. Plus, there'll be the storms in February.
Bonus Points: You'll be able to turn off your house's heating during your sessions, thus saving you money whilst being super warm.

Details in the next post.

ZwiftPower Teams: Cycling Ireland , Team RWB and Orwell Wheelers .
You can join multiple teams, and set a default one.

Zwift Event Tags: #CyclingIreland and #RidingWithoutBorders .
RWB and CI have events for every day of the week.

I'm only allowed to put so many links in a forum post, so you'll have to manually search Facebook for these Groups:
CyclingIreland Virtual Community, RWB Ireland, Zwift Racers and Zwift Riders.

Also search out the following Resources:
  • WTRL TTT: The biggest Team Time Trial weekly league, try to meet people on the RideWithoutBorders Team to get on a team.
  • WTRL ZRL: The biggest weekly team racing league, again RideWithoutBorders is the best place to source a team.
  • ZwiftInsider: For all the latest news.

Notes:

.

Benefits:
The benefits of a Zwift Club are that we can host our own Events (Group Rides, Races, Group Workouts), without having to go through Zwift's Events Module. The Group Workouts are limited to a few off-the-peg workouts from Zwift's Library. Hopefully this will be built out before Winter to allow us to use more expansive workouts and custom workouts.

Club Kit:
For Club Events, please try to use the "Basic #2" kit, as it is the one the most closely resembles the Orwell Kit.

Primary Objective:
To keep Orwell Members engaged over the Winter Months.
This will take the form of replacing cancelled WinterSpins with a Virtual Offering.

Secondary Objective:
To onboard many of our best riders to create an Orwell eSports Team to compete in the upper echelons of the WTRL ZRL, and also InterClub eRacing in a Matchmaking 5v5 or 10v10 format.
Winter Sportives.
Winter Club League Racing, this might be too much racing though.
Workout Series to finalise preparations for The Club League, Open Racing and/or Orwell Women's Crit League. This is subject to the functionality being available.

If you would like to get involved to:
  • Suggest Routes for Spins to target Route Badges, please do so.
  • Create Club Events, please request the "Moderator" role from me, let me know your Zwift username in the request.
  • Be a Captain for an Orwell ZRL Team, please start the process.
  • Throw down challenges to other clubs for an InterClub eRacing Matchmaking format, posse up and say "5v5 us bro".
  • Select workouts for a workout series, or after Zwift release the custom workout feature, have a look at  the Zwift Workout Library and formulate a plan, or consult some cycling coaches that offer Club Coaching to best serve our members.

CyclingIreland 2023 eSports Winter League
CI and RWB are running a Friday Evening 19:00 Race League for twelve weeks.
October 27th to January 19th is the main season.
But they're running a three round Prologue series, this is to set your Category, based on WKG or the new Rider Score (a racing Elo score), on October 6th, 13th and 20th. But any three races will do to set your category.

Details:  Esports Winter Series Returns For 2023 .
Ensure that you sign up on EventMaster.

Last year, you needed to know your Zwift ID when signing up, it's in your ZwiftPower URL's Query String. Cycling Ireland have a Explainer Video on their site.

CI say that they're aiming to use the league to form a team for the 2024 Cycling eSports World Championships. The 2024, 2025 and 2026 eSports Worlds will be held on MyWoosh's platform and not Zwift.

CyclingIreland eSports Hub Page: Esports .

So CyclingIreland have two weekly Events:
  • Wednesday 17:15: Social Ride
  • Friday 19:00: League Race
.
