Now that there are no live classes all of the scheduled classes are encores. What's the point of a scheduled on demand ride? Why would someone do an encore vs. just picking whatever ride they want to do and doing it when they want?
What makes an encore ride different than a regular on demand ride is that since they are on the schedule there are a lot of riders in there and there is a new leaderboard with everyone starting at the same time. This means that unlike a regular on demand ride where you are competing with people who have already done the ride on an encore you are competing against others who are doing the ride live which means riders react to each other.
