Nice job, Toby, very helpful. I just hit one snag, and I think it may be a “Zwift-ism.” I joined a meetup for Everything Bagel. To get the badge, I had to do about 45km. I’m not sure if the meetup puts it in a different orientation, or has a bigger lead in.
Other than that, when I do the courses myself, they’ve been very useful. It’s so much better than trying to scroll badges on an AppleTV. OMG, what a nightmare that is.
I also think, in one of the other threads @Nate_Pearson was asking for someone to do some “free” work (i.e., college student project). You might want to follow up with him directly, and see if you can get your foot in the door that way.
I’d link the thread, but I can’t remember where I saw it.
There are a couple routes out there that are broken sometimes: Quatch Quest is one, and I’m pretty sure everything bagel is another. I rode a bunch extra to get that one (not the lead-in, like a whole extra lap!)
Thanks! I’m glad that people enjoy it and that I can add value to their experience. It’s still all work in progress but really fun and educating for me. I have a couple of more ideas for further improvements. Finding the time for it is at the moment the hard part
I’m interested in a lap or two A. I definitely cannot hang on at that w/kg B. I don’t have a lot of time to ride. But I’m interested to at least ride the route and see what it’s like so I can get an idea on how long it would take a slowbee like me to finish!
Oh no, did you do the uber after the “update” patch came through and not get credit for it too??? I did it on Sunday as well, and as soon as I crested Alpe, I figured here we go, then nothing. I thought, maybe I have to ride around the circle at the top and go through backwards…nothing. Turns out lots of folks have been having issues getting badges and customer support can’t add it in manually.
I’m debating some extreme height/weight doping once this get it resolved and smash out my (rightfully earned already) badge with maybe only a 3 hr effort. So mad at Zwift right now…And so grateful to TR.
I ended up having to skip it because I’m in Portland, OR and with the wildfire smoke I didn’t want to risk huffing and puffing for 5 hours in my garage. I’m glad i didn’t push through it now, I couldn’t imagine doing that whole thing and then getting stuck with a big goose-egg. Hopefully they fix that soon. I wonder if it’s broken on PRL Full as well? I would support you “cheating” that one :).
Apparently it’s just Uber Pretzel and Four Hoursemen and the bug is with the Radio Tower checkpoint. There’s some epic log sleuthing happening over on their forums. I’m keeping clear of those two until they’re confirmed working again!
