I see a handful of riders room by me with what looks like a map in their hands… What is this?
Do you have a screenshot of this? My best guess, based on your description, is that you are seeing riders who are doing a Zwift ‘workout’. When a rider is going a workout their avatar appears with HUD (Heads-Up Display) in front to indicate to other riders that they are not just doing a free ride.
Awesome thanks! That makes sense!
In fact, it’s a dynamic display… you can read their power sometimes if you pay attention.
