Rouvy – Pocol → Passo Giau…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Pocol → Passo Giau’ route…

Not the most inspirational of climbs, and could certainly have done with being filmed on a really nice sunny day in better quality, but it’s a reasonable way to get through an hour interval training. Just switch off and let the road roll past.

Averaged 3 w/kg for 55:41 with an average HR of 116 bpm and max’d 4.88 w/kg @ 135 bpm – so pretty pleased with the old ticker as 135 is only the low end of my zone 2. There’s certainly a lot more to come in these interval training sessions as i make them progressively harder.

Rouvy – Challenge Kraichgau…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s – Challenge Kraichgau route…

Great quality video and an even better quality route, especially for anyone training for a 70.3 triathlon. Riding rolling roads through delightful villages and countryside in Germany on a nice sunny day while improving my fitness is a great way to spend a few hours hours.

I look forward to coming back and having another go at this route when i’ve improved my 3 hour power a bit more. Definitely one for the favourites folder.

Rouvy – Mt Constitution Road Climb…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s – Mt Constitution Road Climb route…

It’s a short climb but reasonably challenging. Video isn’t the greatest quality but it kept me happy doing a hard HIIT session. A good way to take a quick hard ride if you’re pushed for time.

Rouvy – Passo dello Stelvio (Bormio)…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s – Passo dello Stelvio (Bormio) route…

Another fantastic Rouvy route for those who can’t afford to go to Europe riding these epic climbs, or for those who are going but would like to get in some practice. Wonderful stuff.

Beautiful scenery.

I have the 3rd lowest heart rate on the whole leader board – not bad for an old git. 😀

Rouvy – Col du Galibier (Col du Telegraphe)…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s – ‘Col du Galibier (Col du Telegraphe)’ route…

It’s rides like this is why i love Rouvy so much. For those who can’t afford to go to Europe riding these epic climbs, or for those who are going but would like to get in some practice first, look no further than Rouvy. Hopefully one day i’ll get to ride the real mountains, but until then, i’m more than happy having found Rouvy where i can get a taster of things to come.

I’m really not missing Zwift at all.
