Virtual Indoor Cycling Sessions run by Ex-International racer and top BC coach Jason Streather. These sessions are run in the winter months, October to March
Throughout the winter of 2021-22 we will be offering live virtual indoor cycling sessions via Zoom. There is the option to also have the live virtual indoor cycling sessions prescribed to you via a Basic TrainingPeaks account so that you can sync it with Zwift and join the coach on a Meet-up.

- Network coverage in the area you will be completing the session to link to Zoom

How to Sync TrainingPeaks with Zwift for your virtual indoor cycling sessions
If you have chosen to have your training prescribed via TraininPeaks then you can join the coach on a Zwift Meet-up and have this workout loaded into Zwift as well so you know the power levels you are working towards.
This is the view of TrainingPeaks that you will see:
Load up Zwift, pair your devices and start your ride as you normally would. You should have already accepted the coach’s Zwift Meet-up Request and you will then be able to join the Meet-up by pressing the JOIN MEETUP button when it gets within 5 minutes of the Meet-up starting. Or you can wait until it takes you there automatically. Once you have joined the Meet-up you can load in your Workout as follows.
Once you have joined the Meet-up (not before as the workout will start before the Meet-up and then will be removed when you join the Meet-up!), click on the Menu button and then click on Workouts:
From the Workouts screen you should now see an item on the left hand side menu called TrainingPeaks Custom Workouts that should contain the Live Zoom Turbo Session that you have in your TrainingPeaks calendar for today. Select this custom workout. Note that you will only be able to see and select workouts that are in your TrainingPeaks calendar for this day.
Close this menu by pressing Workout button and then you should now see the Workout on your screen. The Workout should only start when the Meet-up starts.
