Workout Library

Next GRCC has a custom workout collection which you are free to access, download files from, and to use the workouts at anytime, or to share with anyone you want. For now they are located in a separate site: greenroute.ddns.net. The workouts are categorized by intensity, just pick one from the appropriate category for the given meetup and ride, or even do them on your own!To download a workout on it's own, simply right click on the workout in the appropriate folder and choose "Save As", "Download Link As", or whatever your platform uses to download a linked file. We will eventually be moving these to a new location where it's easier to see the details of each ride without having to download them first. Stay tuned for that!The workouts are OPTIONAL for the Monday and Tuesday virtual rides, you can pick one, do your own, or simply just ride with us.

Getting workouts into Zwift

Zwift has a very good guide for this. Below is amateur guide we've created for convenience's sake.Once you have the file unzip the package or if you downloaded one move/copy your files or file into the Zwift custom workout directory on your computer. For the PC it's located in an numbered directory in your documents folder similar to this: ".\Documents\Zwift\Workouts<numerical-id>"We suggest you make a folder named GRCC in Zwift's custom workout folder and place the files in there so it is easier for you to find in the app. So " .\Documents\Zwift\Workouts<numerical-id>\GRCC" as an example.From there, simply go into the Zwift app on your device and you should find all the workouts you've added in the custom workout page in the appropriate folder. Happy riding!
