Alternative rides !
As an ageing cyclist, who has sercummdd to a variety of injuries over the long years. I can no longer win races, or indeed cycle fast at all !
I am for the most part being overtaken by young fit cyclists, who are at their prime.
May I propose an alternative side to the Zwift challenges, rides, and kinds of bikes available.
I am quite happy tootling along at 1 grade of effort, as any more and my hart and breathing begin to overload. 2 is about my max, and not for very long.
Can I have a Butchers bike with a basket on the front, this I can use to deliver meat, bread fish, vegetables to the various establishments within the game ! And be rewarded accordingly. Not have to do the ride at brake neck speed, just complete the delivery.
Or be a delivery rider in New York, with a street bike.
A policeman on an old upright bike, with a whistle.
A recumbent bike, going on holiday.
Have a tandem bike,
Put a dog in the front basket.
Or an Ice cream salesman, with a heavy load of lollypops, in that big box out front.
This would then make me feel a whole lot better getting overtaken ! And to give us not so fast riders a way to get some real points, and respect from the top, glowing wheeled fast youngsters.
