Rouvy Favourites…

Below are a list of my favourite routes on Rouvy.

All have beautiful scenery, good video quality and present quite a challenge to complete. So start a free trial and get your times on the Rouvy and Strava leaderboards.

Rouvy – Berlin Beetzsee…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Berlin Beetzsee’ route…

Another nice route i had to ride to complete one of Rouvy’s challenges, this challenge was to ride 100km in one go. And this was a good ride to do it on with plenty to look at along the way and not many hills.

Rouvy – Crocetta d’Orero – via Sant’Olcese…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Crocetta d’Orero – via Sant’Olcese’ route…

I’m currently partaking in one of Rouvy’s challenges and this is one of the routes to ride to complete it. And i must say, i really enjoyed it. A really nice ride with plenty to look at along the way.

Rouvy – Uschl…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Uschl’ route…

Totally different to my normal favourites in this route being a totally flat TT kind of thing. But it was fun just to see how quick i could go over 10 miles.

I really do have a massive disadvantage over larger riders as my watts/kilo don’t count for anything on flat routes it’s all about top end power and being so light my watts/kilo don’t add up to much. But still fun to see where i stack up and i look forward to coming back here when my watts go up a fair bit.

Rouvy – Superbagneres…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Superbagneres’ route…

You gotta love these scenic Pyrenees climbs. It’s so worth the effort to ride this, even if only virtually, as it’s such a beautiful bike ride.

It’s quite a shame that so few have ridden it – even on Rouvy only 155 people have bothered, of which i’m 107, and of those only 19 have posted their times on Strava. But then i’s 12 miles of non stop uphill, so no breaks in the peddling if you want to keep moving.

Anyways, along with Austria, the Pyrenees are definitely been added to my bucket list since joining Rouvy. Enjoy!

Rouvy – Schmelz Part 2 of 2…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Schmelz Part 2 of 2’ route…

What goes up, must come down. This one is a lovely downhill to enjoy after all the climbing – go on, you deserve it. 😀

Rouvy is beginning quite a big crush for Austria within me. The parts of Austria i’ve so far experienced on Rouvy have all been really lovely. Me thinks a visit sometime is needed – definitely a country that is now on my bucket list that wasn’t before i started riding on Rouvy.

Rouvy – CostaAmalfi…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘CostaAmalfi’ route…

This place is beautiful. If i could afford it i’d love to just jump on a plane and go and ride it. Great ride.

Rouvy – PlateauBeille…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘PlateauBeille’ route…

A really lovely 4104ft of climbing to be enjoyed in the beautiful scenery of the foot hills of the Pyrenees. This is why i love Rouvy so much, i get to ride the classic climbs that i can’t afford to go to just yet. One day i’ll do it for real though.

Rouvy – Furka-Grimsel-Susten 2015…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Furka-Grimsel-Susten 2015’ route…

While i wasn’t planning on any silly long rides for a while, i felt ok this morning after a nice lie in and as i had to conquer this one for the Rouvy career level i gave it a go and finished it off. Video quality is excellent and the scenery and route is everything you could ever wish virtual cycling to be.

I definitely plan to come back to this one day in the future when i’m fitter and stronger, but there in lies the problem with Rouvy – there’s just so many great routes to ride that there isn’t enough time to try them all, let alone come back for another go. We shall see. For now though, i’ve got lots and lots of flatter courses to ride to finish the ‘Spring Classics #2’ challenge. I’ve got 703.93 miles left to ride in the next 31 days. All good fun as i’ve got a lot of nice looking flat courses bookmarked to work through.

Rouvy – El Portillon…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘El Portillon’ route…

Not a bad climb if you’re just looking for a nice bit of road to complete a quick workout. I’ll be back over next few days to do this with more power, i was on a recovery ride for this attempt.
