Once you have accepted the invite, go to the Beacon Zwift Channel. You can just use your phone or tablet as a means of talking, but i would suggest using ear buds that have a mic combined within.

This Sundays track sessions are both fully booked with riders from other clubs now, so unless you have pre booked via the PDQ Coaching website please DO NOT just turn up and expect to ride.

To be fair you might just strike lucky, on the other hand you might not and its a long way to go to chance it
