Thursday morning “SquareOne Ride” has gone virtual

Return to Blog Articles

We’d like to invite you to join the Thursday Morning “SquareOne Ride” – clear your diary 6am Thursdays

This ride has been going since 2010 and leaves every Thursday morning at 550am from Crystal Car Wash in Mosman (Brady St) and takes in all the major bays around Mosman. It is a great strength session with some short but tough climbs. We get 10-20 people most weeks.

We’ve now gone online and all meet up in “Zwift” for a virtual session taking place at your home training space.

Let’s keep each other motivated and engaged through this time.

Please see below for steps to join us (note you will need a stationary trainer to put your bike on and be signed up on Zwift).

  1. Download Zwift to your iPad or Laptop, if you haven’t already (try the free 30 day trial) and create your account.
  2. You’ll need a bike trainer (supported trainers)
  3. Download the “Zwift Companion App”
  4. Follow “OwainMatthews” in the Zwift companion App so that you can be invited to the event.
