Off-topic, but something like this for the new home screen/UI (or ideally the game generally!) would be great.


Thanks for the update.

We had a long discussion about this while riding this morning. This will surly be the function we will use the most.


Nice! Good to see a good few development in progress (at least the ones important for me :slight_smile: )

Today’s Zwift Insider post, which covers some of the fun Clubs upgrades in Companion v3.35: Zwift Companion v3.35 Update: Clubs Search + More Route Options | Zwift Insider


Great job! The best news for me is that I can choose an event-only route and create an event. Thank you.

Great work/progress, and engagement with the community.

Minor problem fyi: I tried creating an event using Bologna but that’s not available. Using Android on Companion App ver 3.35. Your list only mentions Downtown Dolphin as “not available on launch”

Thanks @Eric_Schlange_ZwftIn for the great post on the update!

Thank you all for raising up Bolgona and Downtown Dolphin and we are aware of it. I apologize for these not being available as communicated but we will be working towards getting these in soon.


Thanks for these informations
Today on my side I created a Club into Zwift, unfortunately this is not really useful today as my club are competitor only.

Club can be use to create group ride and perform TTT, that’s all.
Today I use club to see members activity only

I don’t see in game Jersey :weary: my club is in TOP 5 under ZwiftPower and we still not have dedicated team Jersey. It’s the most important feature to be able to identify our riders…

Ride on

You can use it to create races as well if you want.

As for in game jersey if your club has been around +1 year i’d suggest you reach out to zwift support and see if you can get added to the queue as it takes months.

I’m right with you on club jersey. My club probably race more days than not but as we are not a huge club or premier division still waiting for a jersey which hopefully will come soon ish


I can’t create races, only meet-up. We already have some great organisations who perform great race events like you. So it’s not a feature I need today.

I already contact zwift support but it’s currently not zwift priority.
We will wait and see….

Hi Lucien,

Thanks for keeping in touch.
Once the Jersey program is restarted we will inform you, do not worry if we have not answered all the messages yet, we currently have a high volume of work, but we are aware of all these situations.
If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us, thank you.

Ride On.

A minor feature to add in activities feed it would be good if we had a club filter now like we have favourites and me

Hi Ryan.
How is the expansion of the members of the smaller clubs going? I have just received news that you have already extended the quota in some big clubs. :blush:

Hi @Hugo_Sanchez_HISP,

News travels fast! Stay tuned for an update on this very shortly :raised_hands:


I’d love to see Handful of Gravel available for club rides

There are some big clubs now 1900+ members which is great for social clubs. Is there any plans to distinguish between social and race clubs with further integration to ZwiftPower?

it would be great to balance out the racing scene and events in general if racing clubs were limited in size along with bringing more competition to ranking, challenges etc that could come in future.

It’s great what you tell me @Ryan_Scannell. I’m looking forward to that update, my colleagues are going to be very happy. Thank you Ryan! :wink:
