(Apologies if this post is duplicated, I did browse the list of current topics but didn’t come across anything similar)
It’d be great if Zwift integrated a feature which allowed a rider to select another Zwift route during a ride, once you’ve completed your current route. For example, Chain Chomper and Countryside Tour, on Makuria Island, are both relatively short rides, and I’d likely do them both in one sitting, but for Zwift to recognise I’ve done both of these routes, I have to end my first ride, save it, and then start a new ride. It would be great if Zwift could provide an option to select a new route once your current route is finished. I understand you probably won’t finish your current ride near the start of a new route, but that could just be solved by riding to the start of the next chosen route… similar to the role of a SatNav, routing you from your current destination to the start of the new route you’d like to do.
This would be an amazing feature. For most of my routes, I like to do a lot climbing, and it’d be great to combine some of their smaller routes together, officially. Similarly, if someone has a change of heart during their ride, for example, their legs can’t take the climbing and they’d prefer a flatter route, it’d be great if they could re-route to a flatter route - I know a friend who came across this problem recently, and had to end the ride, save it, and restart the ride on a flatter route. If were outside, I wouldn’t restart my Garmin, I’d just change my route during my ride; it would be great if I could replicate this behaviour on Zwift.
I know you have the option to change direction during your ride, but I don’t know the route off by heart, so I can’t play the role of SatNav to direct myself to the start of a new Zwift route. Also, if by chance you were to do this, Zwift doesn’t recognise if you complete an additional, official Zwift route, because you haven’t selected it from the route menu when setting up your ride.
