London Weather


(Ian Jones) #1

Hi Zwift,

I’m based in the UK and generally log onto Zwift during the winter months because of the weather… like most folks I guess.

However, when ever I ride the London map it always rains, honestly I don’t reminding that the UK weather is rubbish… I look out the window its wet I log on to Zwift and it virtually wet:-( Could you develop a way of adjusting the weather for UK folks so it doesn’t or at least less often? Also I usually get just about every variety of rain i.e. thunder storms, lightening, biblical flooding.

Anyway, just an idea to cheer u the UK folks.

Cheers

It’s actually a myth that it rains a lot in London.

I’ve thought this as well. Would be nice to see less rain when riding the London courses.

And I’m in Scotland where it’s also a myth that it rains a lot. No really. cough.

I thought the rain in London was  there for us Yanks to experience some London riding ambiance!  Maybe I am in the minority but the rain doesn’t bother me a bit.  Maybe you guys are running Zwift on a higher realism setting than me because I’m staying dry regardless of what’s happening on Zwift

I live in London and 100% percent agree with Ian!!!

I am never dry when riding on Zwift, usually wetter than outside in the rain!! Sorry too much information. Virtual rain is a bit depressing when we have all too much of the real thing in the winter. Sunrise in Watopia always lifts the spirits.

Are rain segment times slower???

Living on the wet coast of Canada, i would appreciate seeing the sun.

I use the world tag to avoid London – only because of the rain.

Just in case anyone missed the update note: it rains less on London now. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the feedback!

How much less?    Is it still more than Watopia ?
