A relatively flat course where zwifters can do easy recovery rides - no KOM or Sprint sections, no orange jerseys for lap times, just good scenery and opportunity to have a group social ride without the incentive to pin it for get a jersey.
Why not just use ERG mode on your trainer?
I personally even just disconnect my smart trainer in the Zwift pairing screen.
Pretty easy to just not try on the KOMs or sprints.
Watopia Flats! All you do is just u-turn at the start of the KOM line in each direction and just like that you have a flat course. I do it on recovery days and call it my Pancake Flat recovery ride
I used to ride the Watopia flats, but now I just unpair my smart trainer, so all flats are ignored … Isn’t that the simple solution?
Watopia flats is a good idea, exactly what I’d be looking for. ERG mode is another good one I hadn’t thought about. Just not trying on KOM or Sprint misses the point a bit, 1) I don’t have the self-discipline not to push a little bit and 2) the slope on the KOM is too steep for what I’d be looking for.
Just think that there are a lot of requests for new courses to ride, I think that this would be a good addition for people looking to do a recovery/low pace ride and avoid everyone who pushes 4w/kg round a lap - also without the competitive element of Zwift.
My hunch is that the Watopia expansion is going to be a flat-ish route. Stay tuned…
