No love for Zwift (choose outside)

It’s not what you’d call “trainer season” down here in Tasmania. I keep my Zwift membership active all year round as it’s handy to jump on the turbo trainer when I am time-pressed or work gets in the way. I regularly join the SAS or AHDR morning Zwift bunch rides. It’s a solid hour of…
