Primo Recovery Ride on Zwift
rimo’s traditional recovery ride is moving to Zwift for the winter!!! We’ll be riding every Thursday at 5:50pm GMT (https://zwift.com/events/view/28966). The ride will be one 29.6km lap of the Watopia Road to Ruins loop (https://zwiftblog.com/road-to-ruins/) which has a good climb in the middle. This isn’t a race, it will be a nice, steady and sociable ride (not like some of the summer Monday nights….) we will be holding a 2-2.4w/kg pace. The goal is to hold everyone together around the circuit so keep an eye on your w/kg under your name. We’ll then have a little tear up in the last 2km to the finish line.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Group Messaging: once you’ve joined an event, your messages will only be seen by others who have joined the event.
Can you quit the event? Yes. If you stop pedalling while participating in a group ride a “Quit Event” button comes up.
Do warm up miles count? Only if you ride them on course (not in the staging area) and your ride must be at least 1km in length. Any time spent pedalling on the “trainers” in the staging area is not counted as mileage in Zwift or Strava. If you ride on course then click “Join Event” Zwift will automatically post your warm up ride to Strava (if connected). Your “main ride” (the group ride) will be uploaded to Strava when you choose to do so at the end of your session.
Can I register via the mobile app while riding on course? Yes! Once you register via the mobile app a “Join Event” button will show up, provided the event is starting soon. Keep in mind the “Join Event” button may not show up for a couple minutes due to server communication delays.
Should I change my name for the group ride? Generally, yes. The instructions are in the event details. You can change your name via the mobile app, or in-game.
