There is just so much more to Zwift than simply working your way through set workouts or burying yourself in a race –although these do have their own draw. Routes, segments and pace partners are all at your disposal and can be excellent ways of staying interested and returning to the platform regularly to make gains and track your progress.

With these challenges you aren’t tied to specific times, just rock up in the virtual world whenever you want all year round, test yourself, and repeat. You don’t have to worry about any other uncontrolled variables getting in the way, you can simply jump on your turbo trainer or smart bike and get on with your session.
