Posted this in the Zwift Facebook but putting it here.
"For map stuff I’d like to see maybe a few different routes with an option to turn or select a sub-course (space bar to turn? something like that). A crit course would be cool with a sub-60 second hill (more like 15-30 seconds), which is what I like in real life. I think a crit course in virtual would be pretty interesting. A track also, but a crit course would allow more people to ride in some reasonable realistic fashion.
Understand that I’m coming from “a weak rider who likes tactics/strategy point of view”. My 5 min efforts are abysmal, like 2.5 w/kg, so I have virtually no chance of hanging with people on hills that are even a minute long (my best is 1:25 or so on the KOM; at 5 min pace it takes me an even 2:00 to get over that hill, so literally twice as slow as the fast riders).
With a shorter, less fitness oriented course (available maybe as a turn off from a main course) then it would allow riders like me to participate in group rides/races.
For comparison sake it took me a solid 2:45 to do 12 laps the other night. I was going easy at times, sure, but I also did some big efforts."
