OBC Zwift Riders

Zwifters, the OBC is launching a virtual ride series. Initially there will be three rides per week, between 45 minutes to 90 minutes duration.

1.A Tuesday sportif ride at 19:00 hrs. This is a drop ride using the “Race Results” function in Zwift Meetups, however groups or blobs can form to ride together like OBC Sunday Pack Rides. Selecting a jersey colour to match the Zwift w/kg category you wish to ride in will help the blobs form.

Ride Leaders:

2. A mid-week Wednesday morning no-drop social ride at 07:00 hrs using the “Keep everyone together” function in Zwift Meetups. Everyone stays together in this virtual no-drop ride regardless of power output. You’ll be able to draft and move around in the group without fear of being dropped unless you stop pedalling.
