Ride On.

Sounds fun!
I do wish it was on-demand like the Tour of Makuri. I didn’t finish that tour, but it was great to be able to do some of the stages by myself if I chose. Of course we still need the option of events, but just thought on-demand would stay the norm.

I agree. I will be travelling during 5 of the 8 scheduled stages. Finding time slots during the make-up week for 5 rides will be difficult.

Oddly in stage 3, the Long route (A) is shorter than the Standard route (B). The two are also nearly the same distance.

I second this, seems strange that they have abandoned the on-demand style tour after it was a great success and everyone loved the flexibility of it.

distance may be similar but look at the elevation… two extremely different routes. La Reine takes a lot longer to complete.

Elevation: 1181 m // 3,875 ft
vs.
Elevation: 108 m // 354 ft

yeah me too, fixed start times mean i will be unlikely to complete any of the stages.

Hrm. The Makuri tour was a single world, no? This new one spans worlds and includes UCI event so I suspect there are certain go/no-go criteria that determine if a particular tour is going to be on-demand

Double XP would be nice :slight_smile: . Didn’t we get that for the last tour?

I think double XP is for Tour of Watopia.

A will definitely take you longer though!

A past whinge of mine – it would have been nice if each stage’s last date was a Saturday, and the next stage was started on a Sunday. As it is, every other stage is weekday only.

That would also make the tour twice as long.

which wouldn’t be an issue if it was on-demand, but maybe @Otto_Destruct is right and it wouldn’t be possible? However, we can set up events and meetups on any world at anytime, so it doesn’t seem to be impossible.

In terms of on demand, that was a test (which worked exceptionally well) for Tour of Makuri. We had already scoped out TDZ by the time we had reviewed ToMI and it was scoped without on demand.

I would expect OD to make an appearance again in the future.

hopefully for ToW?

Huh? No… example.
Stage 1 - Jan 11-14;
Stage 2 Jan 15-17, etc

You said every last day of the stage ended on Saturday.

So basically you’re asking that a stage never ends on a Sunday but on a Saturday instead, so you can ride all of the at a weekend.

yes, so each weekend 2 stages would be accessible
