My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Boccadasse – Chiavari via Boschetto’ route…
Another nice route i had to ride to complete one of Rouvy’s challenges. A good ride with plenty to look at along the way.
Quite a nice challenge. I didn’t push for any fast times, just choosing to ride each route on my normal training plan. So i’m more than happy to come 81st.
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.
This was a hard challenge to complete and only 61 people managed to reach the target of riding at least 815.86 miles from 18.03.2018 to 22.04.2018.
In doing so i climbed 45,992 feet, which isn’t too shabby for a distance only challenge.
Just completed ‘National Champion’ level on Rouvy…
So i’m now at ‘World Class’ level and Rouvy have been given me even more hard riding to complete – exactly what one needs to grow young.
Now i’ve got to complete 6 challenges and amass 10,000 career points. This is going to take a while as there’s only 4 challenges currently listed and the 4th is in July so i’m looking at August to finish this level at the very earliest.
But all good stuff. Rouvy is certainly far more challenging than Zwift.
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!
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.
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.
