ERG Mode another noob question

Hi all,

I have been participating in group workout sessions lately and find these quite enjoyable. I have figured out how to enable ERG mode for the workout rides.

My question is: If I go on a regular ride, do I have to manually switch out of ERG mode? Or, does Zwift know I’m on a regular ride, and does not enable ERG mode for regular, non-workout rides.


ERG mode is for workout mode only. Zwift knows you’re not doing a workout and puts the trainer automatically in sim mode i.e. it changes the resistance to match the terrain.

Hope this helps.
