ZwiftCon is happening this weekend at Run & Ride, Hednesford, Staffordshire, UK. This is the first-ever fan-organized real-world Zwift conference, and it sounds like it will be a blast!
Organizers include James Gill (creator of the TitaniumGeek User Manual for Zwift) and David Owen. Here are some details about the event:
- Entrance is free
- 10 Zwift rigs will be set up using a range of top-notch smart trainers (including the new Cyclops Hammer), so attendees can test Zwift for the first time, ride KOM attempts, and contribute miles to the World Bicycle Relief event
- Saturday is World Bike Relief Day. Zwift set ups will be there and folks are putting the miles in for WBR.
- Sunday will begin at 10am with a “soft opening”, with scheduled events beginning at noon with an address from event MC and cycling pro Chris Pritchard. Racing will follow then a talk from Dr. Garry Palmer. More racing after that, followed by a talk by Tim Lawson on nutrition. Racing and testing to follow, then Q&A with the Titanium Geek followed by final races.
- Scottie the Squirrel may even make an appearance!
