For me Zwift is a fun training tool. I’m a non-competitive recreational cyclist who likes group rides to keep in shape.
I am time constrained and often can’t find a ride for the time I have available. For these non-competition rides rides, I weight dope so I can hang with different groups, from 1.0 watts/kg to 3.0 watts/kg. I have to “guess” and change my weight before a ride and often my guess is wrong since the group is not sticking to the advertised watt/kg or I’m having a good or bad day.
Dynamic Ride Handicapping would allow you to increase or decrease your Handicap during a non-competitive social ride that decided to allow this feature during it’s event (allow on/off like the fence).
Think of it as a Golf Handicap. You will never be able to play near the ability to Tiger Woods, but with the golf handicapping system you can actually play an event with Tiger and be close to him at the end.
The goal is to have more options and ride more and be healthier.
I think this would be a great option for social rides.
