Some beginner questions


(Michael Quealy) #1

I am new to Zwift. I was on a great ride this morning, called the PACK Slackers SUB2 ride. About perfect for my ability. I have a couple of questions I was hoping someone might answer.

  1. The ride report at the end gave me my average watts, as well as other stuff. But after the ride, all that information is gone. Is this stored somewhere? I would like to look back at prior rides and compare my effort, etc. I do export to Strava, but that doesn’t record watts.
  2. There seemed to be some sections of this course where we could compete as a sprint. Are there? How does one know where and when these are located, start/stoop/length, etc.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can fill me in.

No, no it’s not. Nowhere you can go and review it anyway. It’s a significant thing that’s missing from Zwift IMO.

You can take screenshots. Strava does record the power though. Look under “Analysis” on the left hand side.

e.g. one of mine: https://www.strava.com/activities/1878152406/analysis

It’ll also show the power curve and distribution if you’re a Strava Summit user.

The sprint and KOM segment starts are marked by lines on the road and small markers by the side of the road. The end is some sort of banner, and they’re pretty visible. As far as I recall, there’s nothing in-game that tells you how long they are. Maybe there is and I’ve just never noticed it. There is a countdown in distance as you get towards the end though.

Welcome to Zwift.

  1. sign up to Zwiftpower.com and linc your account to Zwift there you will find a lot of information. I use this extension to Strava for more information. Elevate extension (formerly Stravistix) is adding features that riders and runners would like to see in Strava web app.

I also use Golden cheetah and sporttracks, just because more data is better.
I see Zwift as my Road/town where I ride every day and then i use all the tools I would use as if I was riding outside to do the post-processing.

  1. once you get more familiar with the routes you will learn where the sprint and KOM segments start. Sprints are indicated by a green flashing beacon on the side of the road and KOM with red. Look at the maps on https://zwiftinsider.com/map/ to learn the routes.
