It would be nice to login, select ride mode and then choose some sort of untimed warm up option. Once ready, click ‘start/go’.
I like this idea. After the warm up, it could place you at the start of lap
Yeah that’s a good idea, or some kind of loop that only takes 10-15min through the mountain or over the water, back around to the start.
VERY much agree! I like to warm up for 10 minutes at a moderate pace and hate that the result is I’m part way through a lap when I’m ready to go harder.
Alternatively, a way to warp yourself to a particular point on the course. Example, you’re out on course in Richmond warming up and you have no way to get back to the start/finish line in time for the group ride that’s starting…
A great feature would be to be able to select a warm up mode at the start of a group ride without leaving the start area. That way we could keep an eye on who shows up and participate in the chatter. Similar to racing a crit, where riders are warming up on a trainer along the sideline of the race course.
Another way to solve this would be to have a shortcut key that would return the rider to the start area. Any power ups or timed segments could be forfeited but the total miles would count.
All great ideas.
I would like a warmup/cool down mode so I can see the more realistic stats of a ride.
I would suggest a button that would simply break and mark the analysis once on Strava for example. Wattage, speed, lap times… would then be more precise.
