    Just looked, Vlad, I’ve only got 20/40 badges. Might eye up the 5 and 25 laps of the Volcano! Need to climb ADZ once or twice more to get 5 ascents.

    I've got 27 of the 44.

    Still have to do the ADZ 5 badge - but I think ive done 4 ascents already. Got to do the 3 days in a row and then 7 days in a row - but you only have to do a lap each day - take the shortest course and jobs a good one.

    The hard one is 100 miles - that will be a killer and about 5 hours worth of grief.

    The power ones - on a normal trainer - you can get the higher ones - over 800w - but on a ERG trainer - that's a struggle to get 1200w.

    As I have 20gb of mobile data per month that may be an option.
    I've checked on Zwift support and they say - How much data does Zwift require?

    On average, Zwift transfers about 16,000 B/s, or about 55 MB/h.

    That was last updated on 28 October 2108.

    I am also on a metered Broadband connection and have 50GB to cover home computer use for me and wife and also my NFL coverage and Zwift. That normally lasts, but occasionally I have to use my phone data for the NFL matches.

    Depending on how many funny cat or horse videos the wife watches on facebook.

    Oh

    another thing to do is lessen the quality of the video image - I have it on half setting to save data use and on a 25 in screen in the garage its more than fine.

    Vlad, I'm sure you have the "Unemployed" badge, haven't you? haha

    I've collected 20 out of 40 badges. Why do you have 44 as max?

    I've got the ADZ 5 badge.... 6 climbs so far. There's 19 more to go to get ADZ25.

    I did a NYC ride today. Tomorrow if I manage to wake up early I'll ride outdoors. If not, I'll try 25 laps of volcano.

    I'm not UNEMPLOYED.

    I'm RETIRED and have an evening job.

    Don't know how I got 44 - it could be as I joined Zwift in 2015 when it started out and then ditched it.

    With the new Zwift Companion App - we can organise a ride together - its simple to set up - someone decides what course and date and time and then sends the invites through the app. We then all join up and ride together.
