On Tuesday at 8 PM, I’m planning the Tour of Tewit Well in Yorkshite (https://www.strava.com/segments/21758283). This will be a 60 minute ride.

If anyone is interested, just follow me on Zwift (Michael Bello - NCC) and I'll add you to the invite. If you follow me, please send me a note.

A few recommendations...

Zwift now allows late joiners to Meetups. Give yourself a few extra minutes to join the ride anyway (on Zwift 5 minutes before the ride would be ideal).

Please wear the NCC jersey. This makes it easier to recognize who is in the group. On a computer, log into Zwift, once riding, press “P” on you keyboard and enter NCCMAKIT. After that, you can use the jersey on any device running Zwift (laptop, tablet, phone, etc.).

Our previous rides were enhanced with conversations on Discord. After installing Discord, ˙˙use the NCC invite to join the conversation: https://discordapp.com/invite/uXdHm7m

If you are new to Discord, I recommend this article on ZwiftInsider: https://zwiftinsider.com/using-discord/. Please pay particular attention to Step 4: "Discord automatically places you in the text chat channel, which isn’t where you want to be. Click the hamburger menu (3 lines at top-left) to view all the channels on the server. Click “General” under voice channels, then click “Connect to Voice” to join the general voice chat." 

I also recommend testing Discord out prior to the ride. Feel free to contact me if you want to test Discord.

I will say this upfront, I picked a very hilly route for a Tuesday night ride. Next week will be flatter.

Seven of us (Charlie, Chris, Kevin, Marcus, Melissa, Zinj, and me) rode the Tour of Tewit Well in Yorkshire.

During our 60 minute ride, we covered approximately 17.5 miles and climbed 1,800 feet. We almost completed three laps of the course.

The Discord conversation was all over the map tonight. We chatted about last night's Zwift race, Robert's Rules of Order, what everyone has the thermostat is set at, and Kevin's extra long Discord session from the other day.

Chris, Kevin, and Marcus earned the Tour of Tewit route badge, which double their XP points for the first lap. Marcus completed level 9 and earned his avatar Zwift Glasses.

Here is the NCC Zwift schedule:

- Mon afternoon - Road Race (times will vary between 5 PM and 7 PM EST)
- Tue 8:00 PM - Social Ride (invite required)
- Thu 5:30 PM - Time Trial / Hill Climb (solo effort, TT bike required) (invite required)
