Many of us have probably ridden a few laps and then either through a system crash due to a low spec PC or a network issue have then lost all those valuable points.
I personally ended up stopping on every lap and saving the ride just to progress up a few levels. How bad must it feel if you have done 100 miles and suddenly you lose everything.
A request has been put in to allow you to press a key to “bank” those points during your ride without stopping and saving. So if you do manage to grab the big red Plus bonus or reach level 15 you don’t have to worry that the microwave is about to go on or your family will download a big film
