Menu showing settings, badges, customized gear, should be available before starting a ride

The only way to reach the Menu panel with all your profile info including profile info, badges, pairing, settings, customize (bike, jersey, etc), is to start a ride.  This should be reachable all times within the app.

Also, the only way to reach this is to stop pedaling and wait for the Menu button to appear.  The menu button should be displayed at all times.

I would prefer if those menu items were available through the website or the Zwift Mobile App.

You can access the menu at any time, just click the screen and the Menu button will appear.

Click the screen?  Good tip. Thanks.  But that is not intuitive. And yes, I like your point that the menu should also be available when logged into the website too.
