New UI - Start Workout ride without a route


I now have the new Zwift UI home screen. Did a workout today and was surprised that I had to select a route before starting to ride.

Is there any way to ride a workout without choosing a route? Like just riding where I want?

And, on the ride I was unable to alter the ride route by using the arrow keys at intersections, basically stuck on the route.

Any suggestions?

You can select a route, then start the ride. Once you are in the ride you can go the menu screen and select workouts. You can then select the workout you want to do.
