Here are a few ways to use computer feedback to keep your riders engaged and coming back for more.

Resistance Level

Use a number to benchmark what resistance should be, and allow the rider to increase or decrease resistance based on skill level. This is a very intuitive tool for those new to group cycling because it will allow them to gauge what the average resistance should be for their sprints and climbs.
