    Default Zwift

    This will be my first year of Freezing Saddles. I understand the purpose of the event is to ride outside, however, my Zwift sessions automatically show up in Strava, too. Will they be counted?

    Thanks!

    "Rule #3: Stationary trainer rides don’t count. Mark your rides as such or include #NOBAFS in the title to exclude them. Take your bike outside and ride it some distance across the surface of the earth in order to earn points. Manual entries will also not be accepted."

    You can also tag the ride in Strava as indoor

    Thanks. I'm not clear on how the rides are calculated, by human or machine. They automatically get marked as ZWIFT, so no human would mistake them for a ride outdoors. If a machine needs to see the specific tag, that's another matter.

    There is no need to do anything with Zwift rides. They will automatically be tagged by Strava as indoor trainer rides.

    As noted, your Zwift rides will not count towards FS points. It is highly encouraged that you stop doing that and go ride outside instead.
