Last Saturday, six of us did a virtual ride via Zwift and we used Discord to talk to each other during the ride. Our first ride went well, so I'm going use Zwift’s new meet-up feature to do another group ride Saturday. The ride will be Saturday at 09:00 and it will be led by Cory Wagner. This week's ride will follow the NYC Mighty Metropolitan route for 26 miles (42 KM). To join the meetup, you must be a Zwift user who follows Cory, and he needs to invite you to the ride. If you are a Zwift user and you haven’t been invited, follow Cory Wagner and he’ll invite you.
Meetups are like other Zwift events, where you must join the event before the start time. You may join up 15 minutes before the start and you can leave at any time. Don’t be late.
At 09:00, we’ll roll out slowly and get everyone together near the yellow beacon, which is used to help you find the ride leader. Saturday's are very busy on Zwift, so I'll call out my location (mileage) until we are together. Join us on Discord to talk to other riders in our meetup ride group.
To talk to each other during the ride, and make it more fun, we’re going to use the free Discord service. The first-time setup is easy and should be done before the ride.
Install the Discord app on your phone or PC.
Create an account.
Add Rosemount Cycling Club’s server: JVPkUjG.
During the ride, connect headphones (with a microphone) to your phone or PC.
Start the Discord app and join the club’s General voice channel.
Talk to other riders.
After the ride, hang up via the icon with the old-school handset and x.
We hope to see you at the ride.
