Rouvy – Oberschwaben-Unterland…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Oberschwaben-Unterland’ route…

Another beautiful sunny ride through the rolling roads of the Bavarian countryside. Definitely coming back to this at higher power as i was on a fairly easy ride day when i did this.

Rouvy – Oberallgäu…

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

A beautiful sunny ride through the rolling roads of the Bavarian countryside. I really like this route. It’s quite surprising that more people on Rouvy don’t ride the Bavarian routes, but at least it makes me look good on Strava – at least for now.

Rouvy – Haleakala…

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

In order to get my Rouvy Legend level award, i had this route left to ride and 2 challenges to complete. And this route fitted in really nicely with the first of those 2 challenges which is to burn 14,400 kJ in 4 weeks riding. Over 2,000 kJ were burned on this endeavour alone, so well on my way to completing the challenge as well.

It’s certainly an awesome climb, and if i ever get to do Kona i’ll make sure to do the real Haleakala while i’m on the islands.

PowerTap Endurance Challenge…

192nd out of 636…

So i did the absolute bare minimum to complete this challenge, but i’m being good and sticking with my training plan as much as possible. Admittedly i did go a little longer than planned, 32 minutes to be exact, on this ride but that was only as far as i needed. And that’s all i needed to do to get this challenge in the bag towards my Rouvy career, which is all that matters.

Le’Tour 2018 Challenge…

53rd out of 487…

Once again, just stuck with my training plan, no going for glory on any of the routes, so well pleased with 53rd.

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.

CycleOps Distance Challenge…

29th out of 517…

Once again, just stuck with my training plan and watched the miles add up. It’s surprising how quickly they accumulate.

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.

Giro 2018 Challenge…

75th out of 664…

Once again, not going for fast times and just sticking with my training plan. So really pleased to complete it in 8 hours and come out 75th.
