On Tuesday at 8 PM, I’m planning the Innsbrucking in Innsbruck (https://www.strava.com/segments/18398895). 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.

Tonight, Charlie, Chris, Cooper, Kevin, Melissa, Zinj, and I rode the Innsbrucking course in Innsbruck.

This was a surprisingly fast 60 minute group ride. We rode approximately 21 miles with 984 feet of climbing. This was about four laps of the Innsbrucking course.

Cooper joined us for the first time this evening and even participated in the conversation on Discord. The group chatted about Monday's fast (really fast) Zwift race, yesterday's Gazette article that featured Northampton Bicycle and Speed and Sprocket (https://www.gazettenet.com/Bikes-and-household-appliances-hard-to-find-due-to-disruptions-in-supply-chains-37469302), and Melissa's road to recovery (she is put out strong watts once again). Chris had computer issues, but got into the official ride for a bit. The evening ended with Zinj's "5 minutes of Power," which became six minutes due to the hill on the course.

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)
