Allow Saves Without Exit

IIRC it was mentioned on an old Zwiftcast episode with Jon Mayfield; one of the platforms would randomly crash too often for their liking when swapping worlds. Seem to recall it was one of the Apple platforms.

He mentions i about once a year, usually on the thanksgiving ride.

Just to keep the hope alive


i guess he never played Zwift.
Coming soon lol this was said about 4 years ago.
Coming soon :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :see_no_evil:

For them to even suggest that core players / users don’t want this feature is a embarrassment to those working at Zwift.

This is the number one feature request that goes completely ignored.

It’s terrible and if there was better competition users wouldn’t put up with it and move.

I for one don’t mind that you can’t save without exit. In over 5 years of Zwifting I never needed it. Pick a world and route and ride till breakfast. If the route get boring I make a manual turn.


if you ride 30 to 60 min ok.
30 to 60 min is recovery for me.
i ride a minimum of 3 h a day.

love to switch races and groups and thus switch about 2 to 3 times a day if the races or groups are interesting.

in some cases you ask yourself:
how long did they test it? why didnt the testers report these missbehavior or unhandy stuff? they must have reported it so if they made a report why didnt they fix it?
did they fix anything the last years? what was new in the last years? which features? in why so little new features?
are those feature mostly of cosmetically nature like new routes, new worlds, new outfits or what? if yes there is a tendency that hardcoded stuff has been skipped for whatever reason and yes hardcoded stuff is very rare?

You can always change the world and route with a meet-up, no need to exit.
Yes, it is a workaround, but I can live with it.
It also makes it possible to ride in all worlds, not only Watopia and the scheduled two.

You never accidentally bypass the world and route selection screen when Zwift decides you actually clicked the Ride button there when you thought you just clicked OK on the pairing screen? Yhis would probably be at least my primary use case for this functionality (minus the “save” part), not having to wait for a minute or two to close and restart the application.

(And yes, of course simply moving one of the buttons so they don’t align would also solve this particular case…)


I never ride Paris ever, I would do if i could do a few laps then easily switch. same for the other smaller worlds, Innsbruck if I don’t fancy the big climb and Richmond get boring fast.

Hi Chris,
I think I’m right in saying that if you start in Watopia and then join an event in Paris you could ride for a lap or so and then quit the event and you should be given the option to return to Watopia. . . . . . at least I think so.

You definitely get that option once the event is finished.
Allow saves would be better though for sure.

You probably know this already though. :slightly_smiling_face:
