I like riding with the pace bots around various courses on zwift .
However , being an older rider and drinking whilst riding , i need a Pit Stop every so often.
Not an issue on a solo ride, but a group event, you loose them.
On a circuit ride with the pace bots you can either wait till they do a circuit , which could be a very long time, or you could try to catch them up . Not going to happen in most cases .
Therefore , why not have a rejoin pacer bot button .
We join the pacer bot on their route when we first join anywhere on the route…so why not a rejoin button, so we can continue to ride with them after a pit stop of a short period .
We can loose the drop multiplier and get no xp.
but just move our bikes to run again with the pacer bots so we can continue the same ride.
Therefore we don’t have to leave the ride, save it to Strava and rejoin the bots again to record another ride to make up your mileage.
I’ve said it before, but ideally we need to have access to the “ride with” submenu available in-game so you could select your current pacer, a different pacer or an actual riding buddy and join them at their current position with a fresh burst of pedal assist
The msp from an indoor ride is inmaterial in reality.
The suggested function is to stay with the Robo Pacer ride that you wanted to ride. Im trying to get my form back so doing 2 - 2.5 hour Robo Pacer rides are needed. But being over 60, i need to have a wee break every so often. But you soon lose the RP group n you can not rejoin them.
Options are, stop, exit, rejoin = pain in the ■■■■. Or = continue ride solo = not what was required .
A simple rejoinbutyon on a 3 minute count down timer, alliws for a quick break, back on bike, press rejoinbutton n your back in tbe bunch. You cant use rejoin again for 15 minutes .
Rhis gives you a long RP ride at rhe Wattage you wanted (despite the RPs speed difference). Strava date willbe basic as its either long Z2 ride or harder effort, msp dont count as its the DATA that matters.
Pro riders stoppibg for a wee at road side dont go back to the start of the race to restart, they get a trip through the cars back to the bunch.
I’m starting to think I don’t hydrate enough on my rides. I’ve not once had to stop a ride to go to the washroom, that includes PRL Full, Uber Pretzel, and every other route badge in the game. Haven’t attempted vEveresting yet, and probably never will
Happens all the time. Leader’s jersey calls for nature breaks. Typically doesn’t make the race feeds because a) no one wants that on their TV and b) tends to happen earlier in a stage before things heat up, and often therefore before many people are watching (or before the live feed starts in some cases). Often they cut to the break when stuff like that happens.
