Hi all, I searched the forum first for an answer but couldn’t find them so sorry if this has been asked before:
- I was doing a group ride this evening. It was a group D only ride.
I started somewhere in the middle I think. After 5 minutes I got a ’ RETURN TO GROUP’ message with a timer.
That surprised me since I hardly changed positions with my fellow riders.
I did not know if I should speed up to get to the front or let other riders pass me… so first I started a sprint, overtaking other riders, but that did not help. With 30 seconds to go I almost stopped riding and let everybody overtake me.
The timer continued and after 60 seconds I was kicked.
What should I do in a case like this? Why is there no ’ speed up’ or ’ let others pass you’ message to let me know what I’m doing wrong?
In other races I started wondering if my calibration (Wahoo Kickr Core) was ok. Sometimes while I maintained the same speed, the whole pack around me suddenly were way faster than me. A couple of minutes later I overtook them all again, while maintaing the same speed in real life.
I just read that group workout has a rubberband feature to keep the pack close, so I guess that was the case here. Do group -rides- also have this rubberband feature? Is there any way I can see if rubberbanding is being used in an event?
I was doing a free run in Richmond. While riding I forgot how much miles/km the lap was. Is there a way with the companion app to see how much the distance to the start/finish line is?
