25 Jan ZwiftQuest Saturday – Pairs and Teams of Four
Team up with three fellow Zwifters or just the one to form Fours and Pairs to ride together adventure around Watopia this Saturday January 27th. The aim of this ZwiftQuest is to navigate around Watopia to all the checkpoints in the fastest way possible or the shortest route but you must do it as a team of Four or as a Pair.
You can complete all the checkpoints in any order and navigate to them by any route. Plan ahead of time, strategize your route or just go for it on the day, it is up to you!
Joining the in-game event will send you on a route towards the Start/Finish Arch. Just before the Arch, the event function will end and you will be free to navigate. Your quest will start when the first rider in your team passes under the Start/Finish Arch for the first time and it will end once you have navigated to all the checkpoints and the last rider in your team passes under the Start/Finish Arch for the final time in your ride. You can take any direction at junctions you want, make u-turns, use power-ups, draft and swap bikes if you want to complete the quest. All team members must ride at the same time and every team member must go to all the checkpoints including the Start and Finish locations.
In order to qualify your attempt you must save your ride with “ZQSAT27” in the activity name and upload to Strava. You must also login with Strava at ZwiftQuest.com (link – http://zwiftquest.com/my-zwift-quest/) so that your attempt will be included in the results.
