If zwift Is willing to do an event, I have a few ideas on what I would with it. Maybe for group rides have a different leader each time to give everyone a feel for what it is like. I think that the teams idea is great but I think that that would come later on in the future.

Even if we did get alot of votes for this feature would Zwift do it? Zwift seems like it’s expanding towards the pro platform, they haven’t done anything for kids besides the free account for those with a parent already on Zwift. Are they just waiting till “Enough” kids start Zwifting? If so that will probably never happen, they need to expand kids rides first then more kids will start.

I know a few clubs put on kids groups rides already (not many but its more than a year ago so growing) but if you want to get something more race focused, how bout you hit up one of the clubs to launch a regular race in the timezone that works for you? Go and canvass users on Zwiftriders (FB group) to get support and find best time(s) then you’ll be able to show the organisers that it will be worth the effort.
