Description

This is a TRAINING event, category E, with a yellow beacon leader. The beacon leader will ride to
2.5w/kg pace average wherever possible.
Please look out for this training ride on Saturdays, every week at 11.30am in the UK, 6.30am EDT
in the US, and at 12.30 European time.
This weekly Glasgow Green Cycle Club (GGCC) training ride is intended to provide a challenge
for riders, and is open to all timezones. You should ride as a group, following the instructions of
the beacon ride leader(s) for any sprints, intervals and spicy segments, regrouping after each
when requested.
GGCC is a Glasgow based cycling club whose “in real life” (irl) club runs and training rides are
always organized into pace groups, which match the Zwift categories quite well. GGCC also has a
good race pedigree and presence in Scotland, and so we have organized both our Zwift races and
training ride series to suit what we believe is relevant to bike riders’ interests in performance and
improvement in our club, in other Glasgow clubs, in Scotland and the UK. Racers will, no doubt,
aspire to category A in our other events.
As we expect our club’s steady riders to be able to ride 50 miles at or around a 15mph average on
our Sunday rides, such steady riding members will be comfortable with Zwift Category D, and in
our various rides we cater for all abilities, up through the Zwift A, B and C levels too. Beacon

leaders communicate via Zwift message (always) and/or Discord (sometimes) to vary the pace to
allow for sprints, intervals and optionally a mini-race towards the end of the rides, with regrouping
after each segment. Make as much use of drafting as you can, for more effective sprinting and
intervals.
Results can be seen at the end of the ride on screen, and we will, in common with many other ride
series, publish your results on zwiftpower.com too, based on each category.
All bikes are allowed, and no restrictions on power-ups for the time being. Please add GGCC (X)
to your Zwift name to allow your ride presence to be recognized, where X is your desired ride
category. Categories for Hare & Hounds are related to your Functional Threshold Power (FTP);
use your FTP and then divide by your weight in kg, then pick the correct group.
E: 2 W/kg to 3 W/kg FTP; The beacon leader will ride to 2.5w/kg pace average.

PLEASE NOTE: Strava data for our rides must be open (not private or hidden). Please use a heart
monitor so that we can monitor correlated power and heart rate to help assure fair riding.
