Just cancelled my Zwift for the summer

And I haven't even taken the studded tires off my commuter bike yet. I figure I can still commute for the next week or so I need those (-12C overnight low, so lots of ice on the roads still), and use something like MaximumTrainer to do some of the more erg-mode type workouts. I wasn't a huge fan of the zwift workouts anyway, but ended up spending way too much of my winter riding on them.

I know I'm not going to do much indoor riding by mid-April, and tomorrow is my renewal. Also, $19 per month seems like a lot to me.

Last year (here in Maryland) we had so much weekend rain that I ended up getting in several Zwift rides per month, so kept it. Doing so for April, it is $14.99 month here. May change my mind for other summer months if the weather gods to give us a break in 2019.

Zwift

I had the trainer set up but didnít use it all that much I guess I should do it through the winter months
I am not totally sure what I need to run zwift and havenít researched it fully I guess I will wait until next fall.

Too much bike commuting

What's the best way to 'cancel' Zwift for a period of time (eg. warm months)? That is, if you outright cancel, is all your info (history, profile) wiped out, and you need to start from scratch with a brand new account when you register when winter comes again? If this info doesn't disappear, then I'll just cancel. Otherwise, thought about entering a non-functioning credit card # so when it tries to monthly autopay it won't work.. thinking maybe the account and profile, etc stays in limbo existence, but you just can't use their service?

Just cancel your subscription. You don't need to do anything else..... When you reup your subscription your info and stats will all be there again. I cancel mine ending in March and don't touch it until November 1st. Never lost a thing. I use the apple route so I don't know if its any different from a laptop or android version but really doubt it.

+1 - zwift even sent me an email saying that everything would be there when I want to come back.
