Sorry if these seem like dumb questions but as a relatively new user, I would like to understand. If there is a guide that might answer these and other questions, pointing me in that direction would be helpful.
There is a line under your ‘cyclist’ that both moves and changes colors. What is that and what to the colors represent?
Sometimes your w/kg measure turns red. Why?
Sometimes you watts turn red. Why?
Some rides are multi laps. Is there a way to know that before you load it as a quick ride and the distance is 2x or more than you were expecting. Can you change it up or down before it loads?
It may well be my weary brain or the fact that I don’t use certain parts of RGT, but I am not sure I fully understand your question. Is this specifically regarding doing a Quick ride of a Magic Road? If so the you can definitely modify the number of laps if you set up an event (we which is fairly quick to do).
Thanks for this. I am sure there is some good info in the Power Zone indicators that I am missing as none of the images will load. Tried multiple times. The drafting physics and other info clears a lot up for me.
Yes, I was referring to Magic Roads that I loaded to do a Quick Ride. I add the MR to my library and, by way of example, it says the ride is 10 miles. I load it as a QR and it loads as a 20 mile ride (i.e. 2 laps). In this case, I am not setting up an EVENT, just a QR. Can it be modified before I load it as a QR?
Ah, I suspect they still might not have fixed the images. When I checked a month or so ago, the links for the images still hadn’t been redirected over from the old links to the RGT Atlassian support pages which have now been decommissioned. I will poke the support team as I opened a ticket on this.
The general gist is that the colours beside each rider in the rider list relate to what power zone they are on so you get an idea of how hard they are trying.
You cannot modify a Quick Ride event. You can create a ‘normal’ event pretty quickly and using that full capability means you can choose the number of laps (for lapped courses) plus a load of other things like the number of bots, power of the bots, etc.
@Critmark you’re right about the Quick Ride doubling the distance & elevation
When you select a magic road from your library it shows you the distance and elevation for that road next to the title. That detail comes from the gpx file that was uploaded to create it.
So for this example ‘Amstel Gold Loop’ (regardless if the ride is a loop, an out and back, or one direction only) the distance is 25 mi with 1667 ft of elevation. When looking at the graphical representation of the elevation profile, the ride starts and finishes at the same elevation, so it’s fair to assume this is a loop.
The Create Event process is fairly straightforward but feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.
Stuff like the bot config looks a bit complicated but offers a good level of customisation of the power ranges which might be handy if you want to practice drafting on the platform and you can ignore it if you don’t care.
Thanks for the clarification. You were talking about creating an EVENT, which is not what I took from ‘setting up a full ride’ because I was referencing Quick Rides. I will try that BUT, it doesn’t really answer my original question.
When you have a Quick Ride code and it says XX Miles, how do I know until I try to do it that it is a multi lap ride at some multiple of XX miles?
Right, smaller family members have eaten and/or thrown food around the place.
The RGT team have said that, following user feedback regarding how Quick Ride used to work for short roads (eg 1 km loops), Quick Ride was modified so that it adds on extra loops until the ride length is 20km or more.
Sorry for any confusion. I had been referring to the Create Event / full event functionality purely because it is a way to create a ride where you are in control of the parameters.
