Below are some of the trophies, levels and achievements that i’ve collected using Strava, Zwift and Rouvy — and some other things as well.
Collecting Strava trophies is like trainspotting only you get really fit doing it; and the Zwift and Rouvy challenges, levels and achievements are likewise — you have to work your butt to achieve these things.
Jump on board, open a Strava, Rouvy, Zwift account — or whatever platform takes your fancy — and start trainspotting your own collection and enjoy all those health and fitness benefits at the same time: what’s not to like?
There’s lots of ways to collect achievements and trophies, so find one or more that works for you and go for it. It really does give you that extra boost and encouragement to push that little bit harder.
I finally reached Level 50 on Zwift and got a nice colourful shirt for all my troubles, and as a treat i bought myself a brand new Tarmac SL7 from the Drop Shop:
I do think that Zwift could have made a bit more effort on ones Level 50 bonus than just awarding me that shirt: it’s quite disappointing.
The other thing that’s disappointing is that at the moment Zwift only goes up to Level 50, so once again i’m maxed out, just like it used to be when i reached Level 25. It took Zwift a very long time to finally cave into customer demand and give us more levels from 26 to 50, but now what? Do we have to wait for another 3 years for Zwift to get their shit together on this? In the meanwhile i have all the route badges to collect, which is fairly new-ish thing Zwift introduced a while ago: so that’ll keep me busy for a couple of months.
I reached Level 49 on Zwift and got a Giro helmet for all my troubles:
So one more level to go until level 50 and that will be it until Zwift decide to add some more levels.
So straight back onto Zwift today to get the extra ‘Drops’ to buy the 858/Super9 wheelset that i unlocked at level 45:
Best looking bike on Zwift IMHO.
Just have to see how much faster i go now, not that i care about speed when i look so damn cool.
I reached Level 45 on Zwift and was finally allowed to buy the P5X:
Not sure how much faster i’ll go on it, but it looks cool and looks are always more important than speed.
And i also unlocked the Zipp 858/9 wheels, but sadly i’m a little short on the drops to buy them at the moment. So a little more peddling to do before i have the P5X looking proper cool.
I reached Level 44 on Zwift and received a nice new suit to wear while i ride around. There’s three different colours, but i like this one:
And i also unlocked the Safety Bike but some utter dick at Zwift thinks i should pay 3,550,000 drops for it:
I was looking forward to riding around on that, but i ain’t paying that much. Ridiculous!!! Utterly fucking ridiculous!!!
I reached Level 43 on Zwift a little while ago and received a silly hat to wear while i ride around. So i thought what better an occasion to dig out the Buffalo bike and wheels and look totally silly:
I have no idea what is going through the mind of the idiot at Zwift who thinks that people who have worked their butts off to get to level 43 would want a silly hat as a reward for all their efforts.
Not my fastest ever 40km, click here for that.
For some reason Garmin doesn’t always record my fastest times as records. Maybe because Garmin takes the time from the very start of the ride and not clipped out of the middle of it like Strava does.
But whatever, i improved my Garmin 40km by a fair bit, so i’m well happy with that.
On Monday i reached Level 42 on Zwift and received the La Z Claire outfit to wear while i ride my nice bike. So yesterday i bought a set of Zipp 858 wheels and repainted the Diamondback to red to make a nice little combo.
I quite like it:
Last week i reached Level 41 on Zwift and received the “Rock Star Glasses”.
Not sure when i’ll get around to wearing these in game, but kinda nice to have in the wardrobe for a future silly day out on Zwift.
Yesterday i reached Level 40 on Zwift and received this snazzy new outfit to wear while i ride my nice bike.
I do like pink:
