I found the “Big Wheels” on Zwift today kinda annoying…mostly ebcause the constant body wiggle was distracting and made it feel like I was going slower than normal (even though I wasn’t).

Also makes me wonder what they could have fixed if they had dedicated those development man hours to some of the ongoing issues that are well-known.

  • Don’t worry, they just reused time that they wasted when they developed the silly trikes the first time. Good old Z recycle. Did you expect something new from them with all that time then need to spend rolling around in their VC $$$$$$ :stuck_out_tongue:

I almost posted that into the Racing category. Saw it on CyclingTips, so I am thinking it’s real.

It’s real…France is entering a month-long lockdown and the Nord region has some of the higest infection rates right now.

Definitely bummed (especially for the women) but it undoubtedly the right call.

Actually I think that’s be quite fun as long as

You weren’t allowed to stop on a segment to achieve it. I have a time of a bit over 3 hours for a segment where I stopped at a pub half way along it.

The minimum accepted time had to be above walking pace.

It’d be quite a skill getting in to the leader board for slowest times.

A day late, but this was a solid entry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NC05lrxzF2g&fbclid=IwAR3tAP29HZpWmRJS3H8sFLeZsSrqKhJlmLOVCjhrk-cC2__RD-M6ijs-zhw
