I’m new to zwift, and I enjoy the supportive communities. But one thing that continues to boggle me is how people find the energy to socialise in-game.
I try to thumbs up, it’s the best I can manage, but between sweaty fingers, exhaustion and at times an unresponsive screen (maybe due to sweat…), I’ve managed to pause my ride at a crucial moment!
I noticed a couple of times people sending me encouraging messages as I rode, and it was much appreciated. When I asked a new pal how I could cheer fellow riders on my follow list when I wasn’t in a workout, I was shocked at how clunky the workarounds were.
It’d be nice to logon and immediately see who is riding “live” on my follow list, so I can send a real time message of encouragement.
