AOE Ride On's to others


(Michael Kosmatka) #1

Click a button to give Ride On’s to a group of riders riding in the same direction within a certain proximity of you. AOE = area of effect.

Or maybe when you go through the gates zwift gives you a Ride On. Sad when you ride long distance and you have no props :frowning:

Zwift does this already on my setup just click on yourself on the map and you see about 5 to anybody in range.

But on the other hand they’re less meaningful when they aren’t deliberately targeted.

Is that on the Zwift phone app?

@Richard_Freeth Should be more apparent - didn’t even know this feature existed. @Daren_Chandisingh - I agree it should be a meaningful interaction, you can always put a timer on it to click it again if Ride On’s become spam. That said, there are times though I don’t give Ride On’s because of the need to dive into the UI to do it. Should be easier and more apparent.

Yes it is in the phone app, and yes they could perhaps make it more widely known, maybe that the reason for getting this easier to use forum?

I have noticed it’s very randon when riding in a group but seems to “know” that a rider already has been given a ride on. I have notice while I puff and pant up a climb and want to rider on somebody as they overtake me, the downhill riders also are caught in the net. Maybe a nice feature would be they restrict the rideon’s to riders going in the same direction.

I tried this last night, and couldn’t get it to work. It’s really hard to press on my own arrow when everything’s moving. Even zoomed in as much as I could I found it nigh on impossible to press on the right thing.

Zooming out would work better in this case, arrow moving slower.
It works for me but I hold it for a couple of seconds before the ride-ons kick in.

But then the arrow is too small for me to target accurately. I tried it both ways. =)

Would be easier just to have the “Ride On!” button do the AoE thing.

yes, it’s not easy to hit it, especially while pedaling hard … and even more, it seems (imho) sometimes it doesn’t work at all …

The multi ride on on the companion only work in free ride (i.e. Not in group rides, Group workouts or while training).

You will see a white circle around your position on the app when you can use this feature.

I’ve found that the multi-ride-on always works while I’m doing an individual Zwift training/workout.

Well, that a) would explain it, and b) sucks buttock.
