One Zwifter recently sent me a screenshot of their Companion app, asking “Why can’t I tap my location arrow and give a ‘Ride on bomb’ to nearby riders like I used to do?”
(If you’re unaware, this is standard Companion app functionality: while active on Zwift, you can tap your location on the live map screen in Companion to give a Ride On to 5 nearby Zwifters.)
The fix for this Zwifter was simple, although perhaps not intuitive. He needed to zoom in! I’m not sure why, but in Companion if you zoom out too far, the Ride On bomb gets disabled. Zoom in and that white circle will reappear around your arrow, telling you it’s ready to be tapped to spread some Ride On love.
Here’s a quick video showing how it works:
Now go drop some Ride On bombs and share the love!
