Zwift has always been about connecting cyclists from around the world, and since early days Zwift community volunteers have helped make that happen by leading weekly group rides. Our Great Group Rides series of posts is one way to show our admiration for these tireless leaders and highlight the great work they’re doing week in and week out.
We hope you enjoy this look into the stories and people behind the rides.
