Town Line Sprints. Now In Your Living Room.
It's Not Just a Game. It's a Game Changer.
Get ready to take your indoor training sessions to a whole new level with Zwift. That's because Zwift is more than just a game, it's a game changer. Zwift is a fully interactive experience that brings the best of cycling to your indoor trainer rides, while leaving out all the distractions of the road to help you get more than you ever thought possible from every ride. It's social, it's immersive, it's effective, and above all it's just plain old fun.
Whether you love grinding out a challenging climb, cranking it up for a sprint or two, or just spinning the legs to get some exercise, Zwift has a course or training plan that can suit your needs. To sign up for a Zwift membership and find out more, click here.
To get the most out of Zwift, we'd recommend using either a fully interactive or a smart trainer. We have a full selection that can meet the demands of any rider or budget.

JOINING A GROUP RIDE
- Launch the Zwift App and log in
- Group rides will be listed at the top right hand corner of your "Ride" screen once you are in the game. To join, just click on the event you would like to join.
- When it's nearing time for the event to start, you'll see a popup letting you know it's time to officially join and get to the starting line. You can click "Let's Go" or just let it auto-select. You can also click "JOIN EVENT" at the bottom left for up to an hour before an event officially starts. TIP: It's best to be pedaling at least a few minutes before the official start time to get warmed up. When the ride starts, you'll automatically be brought in from the course to the starting area where you can warm up on a virtual trainer before the ride begins.
- MOBILE: You can also join an event through the Zwift Mobile Link app (not the same as the Zwift game app). To join, simply log in to the mobile app, tap the menu button in the top-left corner of the screen. Tap the Events button to bring up the Events listing. Find the event you want to RSVP for and tap the header.
