What is Zwift?

Zwift is a turbo trainer game that enables you to link you turbo trainer up your computer, iPad, iPhone or Apple TV, letting you ride and race with other cyclists in a virtual environment. It’s great for keeping fit and getting ahead of the competition, especially over the off-seasons.

As well as competing against others riders in Zwift races, those seeking specific training sessions can access workouts designed by professional coaches, and these can be completed in groups with riders completing efforts at the same intensity based on a percentage of their FTP (functional threshold power).

How do I get Zwift?

Join Zwift FREE for 7 days. No payment required. After that, $18.99 CAD / month keeps the miles rolling.

What's the pace?
  • First 2 laps of each ride will be at 28 km/h | 18 mp/h
  • Final lap will be a race where you try and beat the pro/ride leader
How do I join the ride?
