June 2, 2020 Please update your game app before riding a Pride event.
In honor of Pride Month, Zwift is celebrating its LGBTQI+ community with riding and running events throughout June. These Pride events will be a safe space for all. And they’re happening Tuesdays and Saturdays all month.
LGBTQI+ community members and allies are leading the group rides. Keep an eye out for some special guests joining throughout the month, too! The pace? Casual—the ideal speed for getting to know fellow Zwifters. LGBTQI+ community members and allies are also leading group runs. These workouts are for athletes of all skill levels. We encourage runners to join ahead of time to share support before the start of the event.
Special guest ride leaders include:
- Stephanie Labbé - Olympian and goalkeeper for Canada’s Women’s National Soccer Team.
- Georgia Simmerling - 3x Multisport Olympian (track cycling, alpine skiing, skiercross).
- Matt Llano - Team USA half-marathoner.
Nikki Hiltz - Pan American Games gold medalist and Adidas athlete.
Complete any event to unlock this year’s PRIDE kit, which includes a jersey or tech T-shirtt and socks.
In addition to the in-game events, Zwift is giving back to the LGBTQI+ community. We’re supporting Athlete Ally with a $25,000 donation to help the non-profit make sports more inclusive and diverse.
We encourage those inspired by their mission to donate to Athlete Ally
Athlete Ally believes that everyone should have equal access, opportunity, and experience in sports—regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
Their mission? To end homophobia and transphobia in sport and to activate the athletic community to exercise their leadership to champion LGBTQI+ equality.
