Not the LMTT - 26th April

Post by IanT » 19 Apr 2020 15:30

I've organised a Zwift meet up ride on 26th April - as a nod to the LMTT, it's a hilly ride, but I have created it as a group ride so everyome stays together. If you want to join you'll need to follow me on Zwift - my username is Ian Taylor GT15 - and I will then be able to send you an invite.

As it happens, 26th April is also the date of a huge one day fundraising event - www.twopointsixchallenge.co.uk so it would be great if you can not only join the Zwift ride but if you feel able to, make a small donation to the charity I'm supporting, Cure Leukaemia, via this link:

It's a 2.6 hr ride on Zwift... see what I've done there?

Hope to see you there!

Ian

Hi Ian, could you let me know what time this will be? I'm going to advertise it from the club Facebook page, but don't have Zwift to get the invite.

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.
