Rouvy – Hefenhofen_2

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Hefenhofen_2’ route…

4th from 18 on a ride i was pacing for an hour, so not too bad for now. Will be having another go in the future. It’s a nice route but bit of a shame it’s not nice sunny – can’t have everything. 😀

Rouvy – Croatia_Opatija-Moscenicka Draga 12,66km…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Croatia_Opatija-Moscenicka Draga 12,66km’ route…

Pacing myself for an hour session so rather pleased to have put myself 16th out of 112. Only 39 seconds away from top ten so will definitely be having another go at this sometime soon. Nice route to ride as well.

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.
