I’ve been Zwifting for a few months and just tried joining groups, both telling the app to join a group and trying out a TDZ event. Both times I soon gave up.
In both cases I found it almost impossible to stay with the group. If I pedaled at a comfortable pace, I’d get ahead of people pretty quickly. So I’d slow down and try to rejoin, but then I’d be going too slow and the group would pass me. I’d work my ass off to catch up, slowing down as I got closer, but even if I stopped pedaling completely I’d zoom past. At first. Then they’d pass me and I’d do the same thing again, and again.
After a few repetitions I just left. I was spending all my time just trying to stay with the group, with no success at all. What am I doing wrong? I hang trouble riding a steady pace on my own but I can’t get this to work.
