on February 09, 2018

As you start making friends in Zwift, you will start seeing them more and more in the Zwift universe. If you don’t want to miss them like two ships in the night, follow these steps to join them when you start your Zwift ride.

Friend some Zwifters

Adding friends on Zwift has its privileges. You’ll know when they are Zwifting and you can even give them Ride Ons! when you aren’t Zwifting.

The easiest way to add a friend is on Zwift Companion App. In the app, select more, and tap “Find Zwifters”. From here, just type in your friend’s username and they will appear in the results. If you are riding with someone in game, tap on their profile in ZML, and tap the follow icon in the top right corner.

When you’re in-game, you’ll see who you rode with at the end of your session in the ride report screen. Just click the “Follow” button beside their name and you are all set!

Adding Friends

Zwifting with Friends

You can join another Zwifter from the “Start screen. Look just below “your device status” to see the Zwifters riding. Anyone you follow will appear at the top of the list, making it easy to find them.

Next, select the person you want to ride with, and then hit the big orange “Ride With” button at the bottom.

Riding with Friends

The game will automatically place you next to the person you want to ride with and tether you to them until you have a chance to match their speed. This tether effect only last a couple of seconds, so don’t wait too long to start pedaling.
