    Good for you. I'm getting a bit tired of Zwift. Looking back at last year, my first ride out was on Feb 15 and I started riding regularly the last week of March. Just checked the long range forecast, I don't think that's happening this year. Now that the new bike is at home. I'm staring at it everyday and it's driving me crazy.
    This saturday looks good? I think my team is doing a group ride at lazy pace to bragg creek and back.

    Yeah if the roads get dried off by then I may sneak out and do an easy loop in my area.

    Anyone checking out the Calgary Bike Show this weekend? Hadn't even heard of it but saw an ad on FB. Might head there for a bit on Sunday.

    I might go check it out on Sunday. I went last year but from the sounds of it should be bigger this year.

    What's your opinion / experience with carbon bikes on trainers? Some say it's ok, some say it's not.

    I've been on zwift for a while now with my lower end carbon bike (2015 defy advanced 2). It's not that expensive, but I doubt I will get a nicer bike in the near future. I have been toying with idea of picking up a cheaper alloy road / adventure type bike for use on the trainer. Maybe this is just my N +1 bike syndrome kicking in.

    No one really knows. You can definitely put some different stress on the frame especially when sprinting or doing hard out of saddle effort with the bike fixed to a trainer. I have over 13k km zwift mileage on my carbon frame and it hasn't exploded yet. Unless you have explosive legs of olympians I don't think it will do much harm to the frame. That being said, my two other nicer bikes spend little time on the trainer.

    I'm only at 7.6k km. I spend more time on zwift than actually riding outside I definitely don't have explosive legs, but I just worried of my fat butt putting the wrong stress on those tiny seat stays.

    I guess I do have the option to swap my hybrid bike onto the trainer before picking up an alloy gravel / adventure bike.

    I haven't seen any runners on Zwift lately. Is that still a thing?

    i saw runners when I was on zwift yesterday. I don’t know if it’s still in beta. I stopped running in August because of knee pain but I’d like to start again.

    Running on Zwift is still a thing. Seems to be less common than when they released it though.

    Both - for recovery rides i just ride around at an easy pace. On "training" days I'll do Zwift workouts. Usually FTP builder stuff and some of the GCN ones throughout winter.
