Yesterday I rode a 60 minutes social ride that used the event module and it was a SUB2 ride with more than 100 riders. But yesterday, like so many times before, the group got split up early on with many riders going ahead of the ride leader. Zwift have made it easy to locate the ride leader with the yellow arrow (or yellow beam if your’e far away from the leader). The yellow nameplate for the ride leader and the little yellow arrow by the list of “Riders Nearby”. But even with this great function, people have a hard time locating the ride leader and write in the group chat: “Where’s the ride leader?”. I think the main problem is that many riders end up in front of the leader, and if they don’t change their view so they look backwards they won’t see the ride leader.
My suggestion is that the ride leader should always be on the “Riders Nearby” list. If you’re 30 seconds ahead, the leader will be at the bottom of the list with the little arrow and how many seconds you are ahead. Vice versa, if you’re 30 seconds behind, the leader would be at the top of the list with the yellow arrow and how many seconds the leader is ahead of you.
This would make it easy for everyone to know where they are in relation to the ride leader.
