Events, Challenges, Missions

  • ZwiftHacks Events database - THE tool for finding events, with sort and search functions. Links on each event will redirect to their respective Zwift.com page where you can register.
  • Zwift.com/Events - Zwift’s “official” Events page. Limited search and filter functions compared to ZwiftHacks but being internal to Zwift has direct access to your registered events if you’re already logged in.
  • :small_zwift: Evergreen Monthly Missions thread.

Clubs & Groups

  • :small_zwift: Joining a Club
  • BMTR - BMTR Club BMTR Events Page Inclusive club that has a tonne hosted rides for people of all fitness levels.
  • Drafting Dinos - started a few years ago with a small team of six women. Since then, it’s grown to a team of men and women of varying capabilities, from A to D. Look for them on Facebook/Instagram.
  • DIRT - “Dad’s Inside Riding Trainers” Facebook group - not just for dads! Non-dads, Moms, everyone welcome.
  • HERD - inclusive club with events for all different Wattage categories - http://theherd.club/
  • SZR - (Swedish Zwift Riders) Multiple weekly social rides and you don’t have to be Swedish to join - SZR Cycling Club – ZWIFT JERSEYS

Adaptive Athletes

  • Amputee, Disability, Under 1 w/kg group rides out there? - discussion on low-W/kg rides for adaptive athletes. IMPORTANT: there were replies by the NPE-CABLE team as well as the developer of the PainSled and RowedBiker apps on how to use that technology (see the “Software & Technology” section) to apply a wattage correction factor for adaptive athletes.
  • Events - using the “Search” box on ZwiftHacks Events list, try “adaptive” or “handcycle”. You’ll come up with regular events catering to adaptive athletes, often with “keep together” (aka “rubberbanding”) enabled so that everyone can ride together.
  • Para-Zwift Cycling Community - private Facebook group with information on connecting paracycles to smart trainers.
  • :small_zwift: Introducing the Zwift Handcycle [2022]

Workouts, Training & Racing

Software & Technology

  • Zwift on PC: The Ultimate Guide to Running Zwift at Its Very Best | Zwift Insider - written by the forum’s own @Dave_ZPCMR with input from the author of Zwiftalizer, a guide to building a Zwift PC to minimize cost and maximize graphic detail and performance. In some regions (UK, USA) you can build a PC on the cheap that runs Zwift beautifully. In other regions, a refurb iPad or AppleTV may offer the best value.
  • https://refurb-tracker.com/ - if you want to go down the Apple iPad or AppleTV 4k route, Refurb Tracker can be used to create alerts when devices go back in stock on Apple’s online store. There’s little reason to buy on the used market as Apple’s prices often undercut used, the devices have been professionally refurbished and come with warranties.
  • https://www.zwiftalizer.com/ - analyze your system, GPU performance, network, bluetooth, ant+ dropouts, etc.
  • Borderless Gaming - Optional, for running Zwift on PC full-screen with fewer limitations than Windows defaults. (more info here)
  • RowedBiker and PainSled iOS & Android - apps that can bridge rowing machines into Zwift (converts rowing data to appear like a bike power sensor)
  • RoadCaptain add-on for Zwift on PC that enables you to auto-navigate. (also linked in “Maps, Routes, Worlds” section)
  • qDomyos-Zwift app for Android and iOS - another bridging app that can connect with a variety of non-standard exercise equipment (elliptical machines, exercise bikes, treadmills) and send the data to Zwift
  • Zwift Activity Monitor - GitHub - Allows Zwift users to monitor their moving average power and FTP in real-time
  • Sauce for Zwift - a data/stats-overlay add-on for Zwift on PC. (requires monthly Patreon subscription; discussion thread here )
  • NPE-CABLE pod - Converts/binds ANT+ sensors to a single BLE signal - great for dealing with AppleTV limitations. It can also be used to convert a RowERG power source to cycling, allowing Concept2 rowers to “Zwift”. Sadly, the global chip shortage has resulted in the NPE-CABLE being unavailable for purchase for some time.
  • 4iiii Viiiiva HRM & sensor bridge - More than just a chest strap HR monitor, 4iiii “Viiiiva” HRM acts as an ANT+ to BLE sensor bridge, much like the NPE-CABLE. There is one minor limitation versus the NPE-CABLE: it won’t alter a signal such that, say, someone on a rowing machine could trick Zwift into thinking they’re on a bike.
  • FIT File Tools - A collection of useful tools for manipulating FIT files. (e.g.: editing the device type on a Zwift-generated .FIT file so that Garmin credits distances and elevations toward badges)

BACKGROUND & ABOUT

Originally posted as a series of monthly megathreads to capture Zwift-related resources, thanks to @Gerrie_Delport_ODZ, this page is now a Wiki! (shoutout to @Dean for the suggestion)

Thanks as well to all of the contributors over many months who posted in the discussion threads on each of the Megathreads.

NOTE: if you have suggestions, please send me a message, or reference this post in another discussion - I’ll be notified of that and can make changes. Alternately, you can message the moderators or flag for moderation with suggestions - mods can edit too.


(note to mods: I moved the previous topic here, to this new thread, and locked it to avoid having any subsequent posts in-thread. Those - even simple ones like ‘so-and-so locked thread’ - cause users to link to the BOTTOM of the thread whereas a Wiki link should automatically get users to the TOP or it defeats the purpose.)
