Make Everything a Zwift Ride with this Meme Generator
In the event you haven’t seen it, then let me introduce you to some solid lost productivity: ZwiftIRL.com
This fun meme-like generating site allows you to overlay the Zwift look atop an existing outdoor ride photo. Or really, any photo. Now the developer says they are still in their infancy, so there’s plenty more planned in the pipeline – including some features in the next few hours to tweak the stats too.
So, here’s a quick look at how it works. First, you’ll load up the site and choose an image to start with. This can be done from phone or PC.
Next, after the image is loaded you can tweak all the metrics at the top. This includes changing your name (even adding an emoji flag after it if you want to, to match what you’d see in Zwift), as well as adding a power-up from a short list of humorous examples.
You can also add a friend to show up on the leaderboard too.
Then whack ‘Update’ and you’ve got yourself an image to save and utilize:
Now at the moment, you can’t customize the distance or time or such above, however, that’s coming very shortly. Like, about 2 minutes after I hit publish. So just hang tight. Ideally though, the site would just link up to Strava using their API and then pull in your ride/workout stats there. But of course, that doesn’t necessarily work for the true purpose of this meme generator: Everything else.
For example, some quickies I whipped up from past rides:
The world is your oyster here. And by this time tomorrow, you’ll probably have even seen an oyster too.
Go forth and enjoy, and thanks to the creator, Phil Wilks, for spending his Sunday creating something merely for the sake of it.
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
