Wondering how people type during a ride?
Some people have laptops or bluetooth keyboards on desk surfaces just in front of their handlebars. Most of the time when I type a chat message during a ride, it’s on my phone that is running Companion, held in a case attached to my bike stem.
They pay for a Secretary to type as they puff n pant out words as their HR is off the scale.
I pedal with my legs, I type with my fingers, what’s the problem here?
I can lean over and try to use my desktop keyboard. It seems there is a box to type in pre race, but once the race starts I don’t seem to be able to do that anymore. When I tried it, I ended up bringing up menus instead and my avatar stopped completely.
Matt, if you’re on a PC, try the keyboard shortcuts listed in this article: Zwift Keyboard Shortcuts | Zwift Insider
For bringing up the chat message window during a ride, type M, for example.
I’ll give that a try. Thanks!
Wait! You have to press spacebar to use a powerup? Like one of those things that spins like a slot machine???
