    New thread to list the major segments within Zwift, compile a league using Strava and Cyclechat members.
    To take part within Cyclechat, ask @kipster to add your name to cyclechat in Strava. Its best to have the same username for Cyclechat and Strava, so others can follow and check results easily.

    The aim is to drive a little competition between members, boast, crow and generally bait others into trying that little bit harder to get higher up in the leagues for each segment.

    Any unusual results could be flagged up, either the rider could delete or have another go to verify the result.

    This is all done in the spirit of good manners and friendly competition to aid our inner ego ^_^

    When you've bettered a rival, shout it from the rooftops:okay:

    Racing generally gives you a better chance of climbing or topping the segments. So get on those races. Zwiftpower has a list https://www.zwiftpower.com/ of races.
    Also Zwift link app allows you join a race early so when you log into 'Zwift Simulator' its already sorted for you to join the race.

    The League will grow, I initially just added the loops. Obviously its 'horses for courses' with regards to being up front of the leagues, so sprints will be added.

    link me to the more popular sprints and 'mini' segments and I will add them

    My advice would be to cap the number of segments. Otherwise it’s going to get hard to read.

    True Ill add some of the popular sprints, and that will be it for a while, the less used routes could be dropped to clean up the first posts
