Hi Jane and the crowd!
I've got into the road cycling hobby more-less seriously a couple years ago. I have a couple single day interstate roundtrips on the public roads and I have done my first 200km brevet this year. I am riding alone and without helmet. Local rides banned me because I don't wear the helmet.
I am software engineer and I truly believe that software is just a tool. I think there are many things that could be done better in Strava and I like suggesting new features.
👋Hello, all. I recently retired and live in the heartland of America. I enjoy riding my road bike but have found drivers too inattentive to trust sharing the road. In Real Life rides, I'll go for 12 or 24 miles when traffic seems light or the drivers seem to paying better attention that day...haha. Mostly, I'll ride on Zwift. I rode Rouvy also and it's okay but the tech seems a bit rudimentary (slow-mo is off-putting). Just riding for exercise and not too competitive, especially when I can't do what I could 25-30 years ago. 😉
I'm with you on the inattentive drivers. I don't ride outside nearly as much as I used to, and I try to get out early on a Sunday morning when traffic is light.
I was interested to hear you use both Zwift and Rouvy. We just rolled out Strava Live Segments for Rouvy. I haven't used it but the demo looks pretty cool! Let us know if you give it a try.
Hi there, thanks for introducing yourself. Road riding truly does require a lot of confidence and navigating around distracted drivers is not for the weak of heart. Zwift and Rouvy are constantly getting updates, I enjoy virtual cycling, too. We're happy to have you in the Community!
