Thousands of cyclists will come together for a social experience in this first Olympic Virtual Series Cycling Event. The Olympic Virtual Series Cycling Event starts on 1 June, where cyclists can participate in group rides, podcast rides, group workouts and Chase races every day throughout the programme. So, challenge yourself to set a new personal record, up your fitness game, socialise with your friends and the cycling community, and interact with some of the biggest names in cycling. In addition to the social group rides, the Olympic Virtual Series Cycling Series will offer the opportunity to benefit from the experience of past Olympians with a series of special podcast rides and Group Workouts.
The podcast rides are with eight Olympians, and the workouts are inspired by them and their racing specialities. Among the eight Olympians are Sir Chris Hoy, Anna van der Breggen and Nelson Vails. These Olympians have designed the Group Workouts to help take participants to the next level in their training. Group Workouts offer the opportunity for cyclists to train together in a group setting regardless of their ability. The IOC and the UCI offer new Zwifters complimentary access to the Zwift platform throughout the Olympic Virtual Series. Codes can be obtained by registering on the UCI here. Anyone who finishes an Olympic Virtual Series Cycling event will unlock the Olympic Virtual Series-inspired kit in addition to the official bicycle of the Olympics, the Bridgestone Anchor RS9s.
