Set Up Your TrainingPeaks Account
If you don't already have a TrainingPeaks account, click here to sign up for a free account. You'll automatically receive a two-week trial of TrainingPeaks premium, but premium is not required for BaseCamp; the free basic account is all you'll need. If prompted to upload workouts or connect a device, simply click "Do this later" to move on to your calendar.
Link your TrainingPeaks account to BaseCamp. If your account is already linked to a coach, you can share your account with BaseCamp at email@example.com instead; click here for instructions on sharing your account.
Link Your Zwift Account
Once you link your Zwift account to your TrainingPeaks account, your workouts will load automatically to your Zwift account. Click here to read a quick how-to guide for TrainingPeaks and Zwift.
Set Up Your BaseCamp Profile
Click your profile picture at the top right of the screen and then click Profile; this is where you can add your profile picture, a header picture, and any other information, pictures, and/or videos you want to share with other BaseCamp members. Once you're done editing, click the "Publish" button at the bottom of the page to save.
Also, make sure your profile is visible to other members. On your profile page, click the three dots under your picture and, if it is visible, click "Make profile public."
Set Up Your Pain Cave
Commonly referred to as a “pain cave,” your indoor bike setup can either entice you to train or deter you from it when the weather isn’t ideal or you’re limited on time. If you find ways to make your setup more appealing, it may change your perspective on training indoors. Check out this great article from triathlete.com on pain cave set-up for any budget.
