Hi, I’ve done about 4 rides now on Zwift on routes over various worlds. I did one this afternoon on Watopia, did a loop that involved KOM on the Volcano area but it kept making me do the same KOM loop, I’d already done it twice and it looked like i was going to do it again.
I hadn’t set my phone as the companion app so couldn’t change directions, previously I’d just follow the set route without having to use the app, should I have stayed on the route I was taking or was I on an endless loop of volcano KOM ?
If you are using a pc, you can change directions with the arrow keys on your keyboard. You even get a bade for pulling a u-turn with the down arrow. Not that there is a time window in which you can input the direction change (other than u-turn).
Once you finish the chosen route you begin to do laps of it. So if you dont make any manual turns you’ll just keep going around/up the volcano. Similarly if you choose the jungle circuit or the flat route for example, you will keep doing laps until you manually turn or end your ride.
The beginning of the route/lap is at the banner inside the volcano, not where you spawned in the game. All routes have a lead-in from where you spawn to the beginning of the actual route. This causes a lot of confusion.
