One of the advantages of running Zwift on a PC or a Mac is the availability of a full keyboard. Zwift allows you to navigate and control some aspects of the game using your keyboard. This post is an update to a post I did a few years ago with the addition of the workout-specific shortcuts section and decided to accompany it with a video.
The video is broken down into sections:
I also updated the PDF reference sheet and the keyboard image with all-new shortcuts.
