A Complete List of Zwift Events for Kids

There are tons of juniors out there who are looking for riders their age, skill level, and who share the same interests. Zwift has made some progress on making Zwift for juniors better but there are still only a few events that happen on a regular basis for juniors. There are currently no events that are on the official events that are kids ONLY. All of them are for juniors with adults welcome except the BCN youth ride where they tell adults not to come. Of course there will always be adults that come for whatever reason. Here are the events! Scroll down to the bottom of the page for event links.

Tour4kids

Tour4kids is a semi-yearly event that takes place in October and February. Details have just been released, and I hope to see you all there! This years event will be taking on a completely new format, to read more head to this article.

BYT Saturday Social

BYT has also just started having public events on the official Zwift calendar, these events are lead by juniors but are open to riders of all ages and abilities. The pace is 1.5-2 and it is at 9am PST. I would highly recommend trying out this event as it is one of the only events lead by a junior. Juniors will also be sweeping for the event.

SAS kids ride

The SAS kids ride has been around since Quarantine and has been quite popular for juniors. The ride is lead by the awesome SAS lead team who are very supportive and fun. Some kids race the ride even though it isn’t labelled a race. There are plenty of adults who join these events which is kind of what ruins the ride and makes them just like most other rides in my opinion but it is better than nothing

Team CLS kids ride

These rides happen every Sunday at 9am pst. I have done this ride many times but it has been filled with quite a few adults and it isn’t a race. It is paced at 1.3-1.5 with a 5 minute ish mini race at the very end. The leaders are good and very engaging. They have a good sweep who is supportive so it is kind of like an America version of the SAS kids ride.

BCN youth

I have not participated in this event because the time does not work for me but I like the way that the event is organized based off the description. It is a ride paced at 2 wpk so faster than the other but not too fast. The thing that stands out about this ride is that it is lead by kids and they advise adults not to join which will encourage more kids to join the event.

ZTPL.CC kids ride

I have not heard much about this ride but it is a more moderately paced ride at 2wpk, or 3wpk. I have not tried the event but it is lead by kids and they do mini races, attack, they just have fun like most kids. No structured workout just ride. This style of ride is pretty enticing for me because most rides are just steady 2 wpk without any efforts.

Overall Kids cycling on Zwift has come a long way. Starting with the first kids team Team Kids, then with SAS, CLS, ZTPL, then BCN joining in recently, and BYT currently on the rise still gaining members. Zwift has not done any official kids only rides or races, this is likely because of legal reasons that restrict them from being able to do things like that. SAS, CLS, ZTPL, BCN, and BYT have all done an amazing job organizing events but if you are looking for more racing I would join BYT and the Tour4Kids race series. Thanks for reading and ride on!

[…] Once you have every ready to go, just fill out this form: https://www.zwift.com/kids, and Zwift will get the account created for you(There may be a delay because of covid, this process can take a few weeks, or a few days.). For me I did not have any delay, we got our accounts renewed within the hour. Zwift will give you a default password, you can then change it once the account is up and running. Zwift’s kids accounts last for 1 year, then you will have to contact Zwift support to get it renewed for another year. I would recommend getting the account renewed 1-2 weeks prior to the expiration date so that Zwift has time to process your request. If you are looking to get Zwift for kids, be sure to request an account before the date that you want to use it so that it will be all set up in time. I also have some cool new events for juniors that I am organizing, for more information on these events, head to the events section of the website. If you are looking for some buddies to ride/race with, I would look into Bikely Youth Team. To read a bit about them, head over to this article that I put together: https://pursuitcyclingforkids.com/2021/08/03/all-about-bikely-youth-team/. Thanks for reading! Other platforms like RGT, BKOOL, FulGaz, and other training platforms do not have things for kids. I believe for Zwift Kids accounts for riders under the age of 13 you will have to donate 1$ to charity. I think that Zwift is by far the most kid friendly training platform out there and I highly recommend signing up for a Zwift kids account. There is also a team for kids that you can join, called Bikely Youth Team, and they run weekly events that are open for anyone to join.
