All in favor say aye!

This is a little weird but I thought I’d share it lol. Sooo, what if there was a new category! I mean like there is a helmet category… keeps u from cracking your noggin open… uh anyway! So, THATS safe… so why not add a mask?:smirk: It ALSO keeps u safe. Lol, it was just a crazy idea so all in favor to this crazy idea say aye :joy:

Cheers,

Liz🤪

Well… I never see anyone’s face on Zwift, so how about a “I’ve been vaccinated” jersey instead?

True, I thought about that but it should also have a dude with a mask on the back. :roll_eyes::joy:

I dont think we need to be requesting weird features . Zwift seem to come up with more than enough to go round for us unaided . :rofl:

That said this whilst this is not really weird and I understand that it would be nice to be able to demonstrate social responsibilty pershaps , probably just an area I guess zwift might be advised to not step into , where does it end with making real life political statements in game in these times might not end well as you would like. Like everything else , you have space in your name or profile to tag some information , maybe just use that .

Agreed - I would like to think that most people would prefer if Zwift kept away from virtue signaling (we’ve got politicians, celebrities and sportspersons to do that).

Sorry…maybe so.

NAY!

There’s nothing to stop your wearing of a mask (and gloves?) while Zwifting. And you can shout that fact out to others nearby by using the messaging function. Submit an “I wear a mask while Zwifting” jersey design to HQ.

Healthcare professionals generally recommend against wearing a mask whilst exercising, especially those (a significant portion of the population) individuals affected by lung disease, such as asthma or COPD, other respiratory or heart disease, and should be evaluated by a healthcare provider before attempting exercise with any mask.

Wearing a mask while exercising impedes performance. Even the most breathable masks decrease airflow, making it harder to breathe. Professional athletes wear devices over their noses to enhance respiration, not impede? Let’s keep the virtue signalling from invading each other’s thoughts whilst engaged in pursuing personal fitness goals in the privacy of our own spaces.

Also, everyone drafting you gets affected too.

I don’t think Liz point was to bring a political debate.
There’s loads of games with open world where they have added face masks with different designs.

Sorry but some of you here are far too serious and can’t take any humor in.
