Zwift Black Celebration Series

Would it be very bad to join in with this as a white person, do you think?  Or would that be inappropriate?  It's a nice idea.

I wonder if they'll do any female-specific series.

I can't see why you shouldn't join in the celebration.

There are plenty of women-only events/series.  The Tour de Zwift that is currently running has a women-only ride for each one of the eight stages.

I was thinking of whole series celebrating female athletes.

Yeah, just me over-thinking as usual.

“The Black Celebration Series is an invitation for members of the Black community and allies alike to join our year-long series of events highlighting the history, athletes, heritage, and joy this community brings to Zwift from around the world,” Zwift says.

I think you fit into the ‘allies’ category.

If you think of it as joining in with your black friends to celebrate and tell of their achievements, that seems to capture the intent of the series.

They do. Women only events with Pros leading some of the rides. There's usually a jersey unlock and or some manufacturer tie in. There are a few women only teams and a lot of women only social rides. All my racing is women only - I wouldn't be competing against men outside so I don't inside.
