To help us manage what we hope will be a torrent of information from you (including the good, the bad and the ugly!) we have set up a few Gruppetto Reporting Guidelines:
Members of the Gruppetto help each other
If you are new to VirtuGO and have a question about the platform, training or nutrition then this is the place to log your query. We have a wide range of skill sets within our community and look forward to helping you derive greater enjoyment from indoor cycling. If you have already completed a lot of kilometers within VirtuGO feel free share your expert tips and help some of our Stagiaires* get the most out of the platform.
Members of the Gruppetto are respectful
Appreciate that others may have a different perspective or opinions that differ from your own . Some like Campagnolo, others Shimano, SRAM or Rotor. Diversity is what makes cycling great. In the Gruppetto chat room all we ask is that you bear this in mind. We are all for spirited discussion, but please present your view with style and grace.
Members of the Gruppetto stay on topic
When creating a new discussion thread, give a clear topic title and put your post in the appropriate category. When contributing to an existing discussion, try to stay ‘on topic’. This will help us at VirtuGO search specific threads and capture all of your most important comments.
Members of the Gruppetto are smart!
Don’t hold back in sharing your knowledge. Cycling is a lifelong journey of learning about what works best for you, either within VirtuGO or out on the road. Ride after ride you store the good stuff in a mental cache while what doesn’t work is deleted. A Gruppetto Stagiaire* will no doubt find your knowledge and experience interesting. The core team at VirtuGO would also like to hear from you if have some technical, physiological or other cycling related information we could use within the platform.
Safety and Security
Remember that this forum is a public place. We ask that you do not post personal information that you would not be comfortable sharing with a stranger. Also please do not publish information that may identify your home address, email account or phone number. User Name: We recommend you use your first name or a pseudonym.
One account per person.
Running multiple identities in the Gruppetto is not allowed.
* a Stagiaire is trainee rider on a professional cycling team. The name identifies that person as being new to the professional cycling environment and as such the more experienced team members share their knowledge and experience.
A team of road veterans have been entrusted with the ability to moderate the Gruppetto. The main responsibility for maintaining our friendly environment lies with all of you, our riders.
Our road veterans will remove posts that:
Contains disrespectful or derogatory remarks about any other rider.
Contains advice or content that we believe is damaging, unhelpful or distressing to others
Is racist, sexist, homophobic, sexually explicit or suggestive, abusive or otherwise discriminatory or objectionable
Describes or encourages violence or other activity which could endanger the safety or wellbeing of others
Contains references to suicide, self-harm or sexual abuse
Is made from duplicate accounts.
