BDOVELO goes virtual

Well we’re certainly facing unprecedented times, with the sporting calendar having been decimated by COVID-19 and outdoor activity becoming increasingly restricted.  But not to be beaten, we at BDOVELO have gone virtual!

Last week Nick Poulter set up the first Zwift-based virtual BDOVELO ride, which saw Nick and I riding the Surrey Hills from the “comfort” of our respective garages.  Using the Discord app, there was even a chance for the usual BDOVELO “on-bike” banter, although the chat stopped as the gradients increased….no change there! 

And, as usual, the pace crept up as the allotted 30 minute ride came towards its climax.  Of course it wasn’t a race but as always, there was a “winner”.  All I’m saying is Nick, as ride leader, knew where the finish line was!

 

 

In short, whilst we’d all rather be out in the fresh air, the Zwift “meetup” format allows friends, contacts and colleagues to ride and chat together at a time when the need for physical distancing doesn’t need to mean social isolation. 

We will be looking to arrange more BDOVELO virtual rides in the future so look out for them – and why not join us? If you have a Zwift account and want to get involved in our virtual rides, please contact; [email protected].
