A "What I'm Doing" display

(Chris O'Hearn Masters (E)) #1

A good idea I think would be to have some sort of status option so that other riders can see what sort of ride or session you are doing and decide to join or not.

For example if I’m doing intervals and someone rides along with me when I’m doing a nice steady pace I always feel a bit bad when I suddenly start pushing out power, as if I’m telling them I don’t want them with me.

Or when I join and am doing a steady hour or two it would be great to know there are a few other people doing a steady 200-250 watts or whatever, and I might join in near them or catch their wheel.

It’s very similar to what people tend to do in real-life groups - deciding to ride with other people depending on what session they are doing, or do your own thing.

It could be an option on log in to set a status or session description, and maybe a small icon next to the rider’s name so you know they have declared their intentions and can click on it if you like.

I agree…this would be nice.

I agree with this as well. It is always a bit awkward when someone just comes along and your next interval starts. Looks like you are trying to drop them.
I had been wondering about a ride profile (pace, power and h/r) being shown when you click on someones name at the right. Even just the power if it gets a bit messy looking. This might not be possible but at least some kind of icon to indicate that you are doing a structured workout would be great.

A brief ride description put in before you ride and could be shown when someone clicks on your name on the right. The box could expand slightly to allow it to be read.

could be problematic I start out thinking I’ll ride easy, and then as soon as someones in sight it turns into an interval session to catch them.

Agreed , i was doing 30 secs on/30 secs off bursts today and am pretty sure i was annoying a few people.

Nice idea. I’ve used the chat/message to indicate if I’m doing a hot lap or something but that goes away pretty quickly.

This is my #1 feature request…

I’d like the game lobby to include at least options for Arcade Mode, Freeride, and Workout Mode and then also Slow, Medium and Fast pace based on watts/kg that can be selected pre ride with the option to change whilst in the game

A couple of icons next to the riders name and if possible on the riders themselves. Race numbers on the jerseys would be a good place to display this information
