Agree with this having longer flat routes would be so nice, the desert is making me a bit stir crazy 20-25 miles would be ideal.
Im not Paul Allen and i can only speak for myself. First my reason for having such a 200km flat dessert road. I dont want to get stressed by clicking any buttons while riding. I want to ride and just ride. Riding in Zwift for me is a very psychological no-stress situation where i can close my eyes and just riding. Even for minutes i dont wanna open my eyes, just pedaling and hearing antistress music. If i open my eyes i would be happy to see nice landscapes without big hills. just the feeling of freedom and wideness. And i think its very easy to implement a single road with dessert all around the riders. For me i would pay easily pay 5$ extra per month to fullfill this feeling. And i dont know if iam the only one, who “feels” the hills even me Elite Turno cant change the resistance. And i really dont understand why so many people are think to argue against this wish. zwift ist full of hills, and there is no single Route challenge were you have to make a 4-5 hours ride. And thats the last but not less imporant point, for me is: its very frustrating on hilly routes, to make 180-200Watts and be the last or in the 5% of the last riders, while on flat routes im in the middle of the field. So its very demotivating if iam in challenge mode and not in the “relax mode”. Lying on my weight is not an option for me. Zwift is defintly a software for climbers. And i wish there were more options like in the reality were you can avoid hills. That are my reasons. Other may have other reasons, like Paul. Best wishes
Samu try Tempus Fugit (Watopia). On distance 200km you will have only 160m elevation gain without stress from clicking any buttons as you want. just ride it as long you want. Its flatest route in Zwift and I using it whole time from time was added.
yeah its the closest thing, i know. but 1. if i speak about my feelings its a big difference to riding between 2 points over and over and ride on a single road and feel the progress while driving into the horizon. and 2. there is no challenge factor in riding between 2 points. If we had a 200km road. its a nice great thing which can achieved step by step like the alpe d zwift and other hills. I think if someone cant understand after all these postings from many users, then maybe you should let it go and accept this wish and we will see if zwift will make it. Best wishes
