Strava Premium members get two months free on Zwift

Access to online cycling system starts in early November

Strava Premium members will get free access to Zwift, the online system that allows you to ride 3D courses with other cyclists from around the world via your turbo trainer and computer, for two months every year starting in early November.

Find out how to get started on Zwift here. 

We told you a couple of weeks ago that Zwift was shifting to a paid for subscription service and adding a new Workout Mode of structured training.

Zwift’s monthly subscription price for the UK is now £8 per month, but Strava Premium membership, priced £3.99 per month (£39.99 per year), allows you to bypass that charge for two months. Strava Premium members will have access to a new suite of indoor cycling features, including customisable indoor training plans, videos and coaching tips.

Strava will be updating its feed to distinguish Zwift rides from other rides. Also, miles ridden with Zwift and on indoor trainers generally will be split from outdoor activities and real-life segments. Trainer activities will have their own leaderboards.
