On certain social/ endurance group rides (not races) where there is a set/agreed pace there will often be a lot of people going off the front and the whole ride gets stretched out, even if the beacon rider is doing a good job to maintain the agreed w/kg. This typically leads to call outs over chat etc to get people in line and frustration along with it.
My suggestion is that it becomes possible for ride organisers to toggle on or off an option whereby riders that fly off the front receive a warning to drop back to the beacon or else be dropped from the event. Much the same as the “More Power!” warnings when in training mode.
This can be triggered, for instance, when a riders getting more than 30 seconds ahead of the beacon. Once being warned the flyer would then have a minute or so drop back to the beacon, if not they default to no longer being in the ride. I think this would help a lot to distinguish social rides from races; many now feel “everything is a race”.
