Group Ride - ride ons


(A lter Furz (PDX)) #1

I am unable to give multiple “ride ons” during a group ride. There isn’t a circle around my arrow on my iPhone companion app map.

The multiple ride-on is not permitted in group activities. It is a rather strange choice from Zwift as this is the kind of thing that is ideal for a group ride.

@A_lter_Furz_PDX

If you’re in a group ride, only the Ride Leader can use this function and the Ride-Ons will only appear to people within your group and category (so if you are in the ‘B’ category, your Ride-Ons will not go to people in the ‘C’ category, even if they are nearby).

See our article explaining “How to give multiple Ride-Ons at once”.

If you have any other questions, open a support ticket with us, and we’ll get back to you!

@Fnu_Ashwani how come that it is impossible to use with WinOS?

The multi ride on feature is in the companion app.

Do you mean you want it in the game? That will be cool.

Of course i’m paying for iOS, MacOS and WinOS.
Everything should be available in all offered OS.

I am not aware of a multi ride on button in game for iOS, MacOS or WinOS, it is only in the companion app.

Yes you already said that:

I agree with you @Martyn_Kimberley The Ride On bomb (for multiple Ride Ons) is ideal for group rides as that is when you want to give out many Ride Ons quickly and easily. In the groups I ride with the ride leader will usually call for a thumbderstorm (or similar) at a point in the ride to encourage riders to acknowledge each other.

It is awkward to have to find riders and give Ride Ons individually. In previous versions of the companion app I would use the Activity Feed to quickly give Ride Ons to people I follow. Two issues with that:

  1. I don’t follow all people in the group I am riding with and many people I do follow are not in that group; and
  2. Active riders no longer appear in the Activity Feed (just ridiculous) so I am forced to use Riders Nearby and select people one-by-one while trying to ride at 2.7w/kg and keep up with group messages and other things happening at the same time.

Please enable multiple Ride Ons during group rides!
