(Gert Boer Dutch Diesel Cycling) #1

Can you please add the ability for group leads to rejoin the group as a leader for the “duration” of the ride.
long story short; I was leading a 100k group ride with a backup co-lead, after about 90 minutes or so, I had a non-Zwift related technical issue, I accidentally unplugged my ANT cable from my laptop, after plugging it back in it would not re-connect to my Kickr and I had to restart Zwift, I was unable to rejoin the group. I did catch up with the group but was unable to communicate through the chat function and lost the yellow beacon. To make things worst, the co-lead lost her internet connection later on during the ride, she was also able to catch up but again also unable to communicate with the group. At the end of the day, the group did a great job staying together and I was able to apologize to the riders at the conclusion of the ride. Having the ability to rejoin a ride after more than what is available now (30 minutes?) would have made this just a minor hiccup.

If there is something else I could have done different please let me know.
