We all know that in cycling, success builds on solid foundations. You must put in huge amounts of time and dedication behind the scenes to get the desired results. Making your riding look effortless is hard work!

Designing and building computer software is remarkably similar. Therefore, this week’s release (see below for full details) focuses on providing you with that core stability – ensuring those foundations are solid to set us all up for the future. Over the last week, developer Dr. George Gilbert completely replaced all the game servers, web servers, networking infrastructure, and the central database and moved everything to a new data center. All the while, riders have been using indieVelo 24×7, hopefully without anyone noticing anything changed.

Further, Dr. Gilbert significantly restructured the install process to make updating indieVelo, quicker, smoother, and more resilient. Some fixes ensure that the downloads don’t get flagged by Windows as potentially unsafe, pass more anti-virus scans and run the first time on a much more comprehensive range of computer configurations.

Whether it is training or coding, it’s what people don’t see that makes the most significant difference. It might not be glamorous or headline-grabbing, but under the covers, it all needs to “Just Work” to provide you with a seamless experience.

Beyond this, there is the usual array of quality-of-life improvements as well as some significant infrastructure changes behind the scenes to help set indieVelo up for moving towards a fully open Beta Trial phase and the likely increased numbers of people using it as we head towards the Northern Hemisphere Winter.

If all has gone well, you shouldn’t have to do anything to get the new version, as indieVelo will self-update the next time you start it up. If you find any problems, however, instructions on how to manually update are on the website:

Please note that, depending on when you installed indieVelo, you may see a warning message recommending that you update the installer/launcher to the latest version. If you see this, download it again from, and the update will automatically apply. The entire process typically takes a minute or two, often much less.

The full patch notes are below!

Thank you all again for your continued support and encouragement; it’s hugely appreciated and makes a real difference in the evolution of the sport.”
