Custom workout: No-XP "coast" block


(Adam Young) #1

I ride a mountain bike and so setup a few custom workouts that have 30sec high-intensity followed by 30sec coasting using a freeride block where basically I hang off the back of the bike, in an effort to mimic short hard ascent and descent.

I noticed that when coasting if I hit 0km/h my avatar would pull over to the side of the road and this basically pauses the workout, so I have to throw some pedals in and this can sometimes totally negate the sort of workout I am trying to achieve.

I had an exchange with Gary who suggested that this is to prevent exploitation which seems reasonable, so a no-xp “coast” block would be a great solution.

This would be a cool feature to have to expand the training potential of Zwift.
