Peloton & Zwift Announcements
After capitulating to the inevitable, Peloton initiated some fixes and recalls a couple of weeks back.
Peloton Tread Lock
Today’s announcement from Peloton includes a software tweak to improve safety and it is one that was said at the time was ‘kinda obvious’ if anyone had thought about it. Which they hadn’t.
The earth-shatteringly complex fix is to simply disable the Peloton after 45 seconds of inactivity and require a password to restart it. Actually, it’s not quite so simple and the following conditions all must be met to avoid an inadvertent lock up.
- You have not touched the screen for at least 45 seconds.
- Your speed is at 0 mph.
- The incline has not been adjusted for at least 45 seconds.
- You are not in a class.
new Zwift World – Makuri
Watopia will still continue as before but today heralds the dawn of a new cycling world…Makuri. More specifically we get the first instalment which is the Yumezi map, set on what seems to be a Japanese-inspired land.
Gravel tracks, wooden bridges, flat smooth roads and of course a few lumpy bits
Enjoy, check out the video above (or link here) for a flavour of what you can ride later today
