When the ‘keep riders together feature’ for meet-ups is enabled has anyone worked out…
How riders are positioned in the group. It doesn’t seem to be simply the fastest at the front and slowest at the back and it does seem that if I increase my effort I can move through the group. Why is it important? Because last night my meetup split into 2 or 3 groups separated by a few seconds and then one rider who seemed to be mainly about 6s off the back.
How is the speed of the group calculated? Is it an average of the factors which contribute to the speed of an individual?
What I’m trying to work out is whether we should split our members into a faster group and slower group in order to give everyone a good group ride experience with the group nicely blobbed. Or whether instructing riders to e.g. “Stay at 2.5 w/kg” would achieve this. Let me remind you that I’m referring specifically to when the ‘keep riders together option is enabled’.
