Zwift pause

Is there a way you can restart zwift after it paused without logging out or ending the ride zwift paused on my this morning before turning a pedal pre ride and then halfway through the ride

When you say it “paused”, what happened exactly?

One or two things happen set up to start a ride screen comes of start peddling avatar doesn’t move just sits there. The same thing had happened mid ride you just stop and cannot get avatar moving again. Go to ride analysis and it says at the top paused.

Sounds like it can’t see your speed/power sensor. What is your setup? So what sort of sensors/trainer, where is Zwift running, etc.
