OK, I’ve got very little time to figure this out.
I have not used RGT yet, though I do have it
How do I do Stage 7 on RGT?
I basically need some 5th grader step by step instructions.
I will be using Windows and I don’t see trying to run both at once.
Oh, and I will be doing it early in the window, Friday night for me
Ok, I haven’t quite figured out how to ride a workout on an organised group ride. I thought that the organiser made that happen. Having organised a few group rides, I know this is possible. So in theory, you just need to sign up to one of the events that suits you time wise:
If you want to join a rubber banded event- here is the list!Just click on the URL and it will take you to RGT to register for the event.
Stage 7: To Get To The Other Side workout on RGT Stelvio *
Or if you want to ride it solo on the public route, I think you can just go to the workouts tab, find the TGTTOS workout, and then like right click and choose to ride it on the Stelvio map? I think that’s how it works. Someone on Facebook posted an ace description. This means you won’t be rubber banded to the other riders that start with you
Option 1. Join a group ride.
Click on any of the links @DameLisa posted above, choosing one that suits your ride time. You will get an email to say that you’ve registered for the ride. Log into RGT, choose EVENTS, from the pull down list YOUR EVENTS select REGISTERED. Click on the card, and choose RIDE NOW. If the ride is supposed to start soon, then you will see yourself lined up with a countdown timer. At the start time, start pedalling, and you’re off. You won’t line up if there are still hours to go.
Option 2. Ride it by yourself, any time during the 50hr window.
Log into RGT. Choose WORKOUTS, search for ‘To get to the other side’ (or even just ‘to’), from the TRAIN ON drop down list select Stelvio, then click on the card for TGTTOS. You’re good to go.
Well, not much use for me. I’m in GMT, usually do my workouts early in the morning - 6-8am or so. There’s a long 10 hour gap where I’d usually fit in. Unless I do it alone on Saturday morning, then do it again on Sunday for the kicks.
I think many of us “casual” or first-time RGT users still have a number of questions about this. wahoo could do a little more explaining on the stage 7 front.
I’m planning to jump into one of the sanctioned group rides, though not sure if I’d rather not just do TGTTOS as 7a, then do Stelvio in RGT as 7b, per the current stupid plan…it might not feel right going w/o Sir @michael.cotty.
Though, yeah - I guess I could run both, though they never sync particularly well. Especially if we’re using Stelvio as the template.
If I ride at the same time as one of the rubberbanded rides does anyone know if the other riders will show on the course? I’m keen to see how far I get under my own steam rather than the group average but a busier course is always more enjoyable.
11am is laaaate. By then I’ve usually done a 60 mile ride, showered, done something to earn back brownie points from The Wiff, and am busy taking The Offspring to a weekend activity. I’m an avowed morning person: for me 11am is early afternoon, and is no civilised time to be starting a bike ride.
However, I’ll be in RGT at 5:30am GMT, doing both Stage 7a and 7b. If anyone out there finds that to be an agreeable time, you’re welcome to join me.
