Group Ride

ROUVY GROUP RIDE allows you to share your rides with your friends or other athletes from around the world.

Enjoy riding in a group, stay motivated, don’t worry about your performance, and simply enjoy exploring the world. Challenge others to join the ride without any podium aspiration.

When exploring the ROUVY world with GROUP RIDE, you will be able to stay together with the Group Ride Leader, no matter your performance. Keep pedaling, and the ROUVY Magnet will keep you close to the Group Ride Leader by giving you extra power.


You can also see ROUVY Group rides in the bottom right tile on your dashboard. You can choose between the rides up to 6 days in the future.

 

If you have problems with Group Rides feature, please update your ROUVY App to the newest version!

ROUVY Magnet scenario

In order to stay next to the Group Ride Leader, one must produce the same effort/watts as the Leader.

When a rider produces less performance and starts losing distance, the magnet kicks in and starts helping the rider to stay with the group.

It works the other way too - if you decide to challenge your Group Ride Leader and ride much faster than him or her, our magnet will pull you back to the Group Ride Leader, allowing you to stay with the Group yet enabling you to give the extra effort you want to. It will get progressively more difficult to stay ahead.

There will be an indicator visualizing your position towards the leader (seconds behind or ahead of the leader) and performance savings against the leader.
