When doing a group ride with the speed modulated by “rubber-banding”, what is the effect on PR’s? I guess I’m below average and I set some PRs during a “banded” workout that might reflect an artificial increase in speed.
On the other hand, on the same workout, another rider suggested a sprint at the end of an interval, and as a result I didn’t get my gold star! It was fun to watch my avatar dig a hole by pedaling furiously without speeding up, but not getting that shiny star and ruining my otherwise flawless performance (PERFECT! PERFECT! PERFECT!) took a toll on my psychological well being. Plus I think I might have lost out on some points? Nobody seems to be able to quantify how points work beyond 30/mile + power-up-bonuses + nebulous other rewards. And would it still be better for me to switch to metric, or is that fixed now?
