Since it's so cold outside, I'm trying out Zwift. Any tips?

A few articles on Zwiftinsider are worth a read.  It is where I got some tips when I started in December.

Try a bit of everything to see what suits you best. it's tempting to just ride around when you start but joining organised rides/races/workouts gives you a much more focused experience. i'd suggest giving a group ride or workout first. i mostly like to race; you can generally go as hard as you're feeling up to and there'll be a group to hang with, especially on the flatter courses.

The GCN workouts are pretty good on there.  And I recommend that you look to buy a fan.

Ride the different routes each day learning them. Join a few races which suit your abilities

Whenever you join an official ride or race, full gas as the timer counts down to zero.  Or you'll be dropped from the get-go.

It would be great if Zwift did Match making games like Call of Duty that try and put people of similar abilities together as some Sub X watts per KG have been way faster!
