    Zwift Group Ride & Discord Invite for Monday 4/13 9am

    Zwift has a feature called Meetup for group rides. It does require some instructions. Note: I will need to follow you in Zwift before an invite can be sent.

    I use Discord which is a free voice, video and text chat app for teens and adults. But it also can be used for training or workouts. It was created to bring people together through a love of gaming (why not virtual rides and training). Once there, they can join a chat they've been invited to or they can create private servers and invite their friends to play and discuss games by voice, text or video.

    • Anyone interested to join Zwifts group ride, send me an email to . The email should Include your Zwift account name e.g. Tom Gorman (SBRA). 

    • Through Zwift I will send you an invite.

    • If you want to use Discord to join us even if you are not on Zwift, but instead some other platform. Use this link for my Discord channel:  https://discord.gg/8aGCm5c. To test Discord I will have my channel open 30 minutes prior to the event.

    • If you have any questions, contact me at trgorman1@gmail.com or text/call 631-960-1035.
