We greatly appreciate those who share the joy of Suffering in The Sufferfest App with their friends but our videos are not meant to be played in a group setting without proper licensing. You can find the rules on this in our Terms of Service.
We Both Subscribe; Can We Ride Together?
Unfortunately, we don't have a system built into The Sufferfest App at this point that will allow you to sync your apps or see both users' data in one instance of the app. So while the official answer is no there isn't a way to ride together using only The Sufferfest app, you can use a video meeting app such as Zoom to ride together with your friends. We've actually set up a help article to get you started. Check out Group SUF Sessions. If you are quick and precise on the play buttons you should be able to manage a collective ride.
A few tips for such an adventure...
- Each rider needs their own device to run the app on.
- Everyone participating should download the video in the app to avoid streaming issues
- Rather than use the 'autoplay' feature, which starts the video when you start pedalling, you should both avoid pedalling at the start. You can override the autopause by pressing the play button in the middle of the video screen. This will keep the video playing in sync even if someone takes a break from pedalling (not that you would allow that in your pain cave).
- Turn the sounds off on one of the devices so that you avoid any weird echoing if one of the devices isn't perfectly in sync.
