Zwift TT’s…

The various 40km, 100km and 56 Mile TT courses i like to ride on Zwift, and my best times.

I know, i suck at TT’s, but i’m only 112lb so my overall power just doesn’t come up to much. But for a 53 year old that only started training on my 50th birthday i’m more than pleased with my results so far. Using set courses like these i’ve been able to see my improvements as my times come down and my endurance improves. And there’s definitely more speed and distance to be had as i get stronger and fitter. Just goes to show, you’re never too old to get fit and healthy.

Enjoy riding them and see you on the leader boards. Ride On…

56-mile TT (Watopia Volcano Circuit CCW)…

My fastest 56 mile TT on Zwift’s Watopia ‘Volcano Circuit CCW’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. Only just breaking the top 50% so definite room for improvement when i return. Seems a popular course for the speedy people.

40km TT (Watopia Volcano Circuit CCW)…

My fastest 40km TT on Zwift’s Watopia ‘Volcano Circuit CCW’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. Only just breaking the top 55%. Probably my worse 40km placing on Zwift, seems like quite a popular course for the fast riders. Will return in the future when i’m faster.

56-Mile TT (Watopia Flat)…

My fastest 56 Mile TT on Zwift’s Watopia ‘Flat’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 42%. So fairly happy with that.

40km TT (Watopia Flat)…

My fastest 40km TT on Zwift’s Watopia ‘Flat’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. Only just breaking the top 48%. Fairly reasonable for a really popular flat course for the speed freaks and, as usual, i was pacing for a 100km.

My Fastest 100km Ever…

My fastest 100km TT on Zwift’s ‘Watopia Flat’ course……

On the Tron Bike. Inside the top 37%, so very happy with that for my age and weight on a flat course like this.

40km TT (Watopia Mountain 8)…

My fastest 40km TT on Zwift’s ‘Watopia Mountain 8’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. In the top 46 %, so not too bad. Will give it another go soon as i can definitely get it quicker.

40km TT (Watopia Volcano Climb)…

My fastest 40km TT on Zwift’s ‘Watopia Volcano Climb’ course…

Done on the Diamondback Tri Bike. Just inside the top 50%, which i’ll take considering i was pacing for my full 3 hour session and i also had a major water bottle malfunction during this and had to stop peddling for a couple of minutes while i cleaned up the mess. So looking forward to coming back and doing it faster in the not too distant.

56-Mile TT (Watopia Volcano Climb)…

My fastest 56 Mile TT on Zwift’s ‘Watopia Volcano Climb’ course…

Done on the Diamondback Tri Bike. I’m sure the KOM won’t last long once a few more people start riding this course, but it’s nice to have one occasionally, even if only by virtue of being the first to ride this far on a new course.

This course gives approx 820m elevation gain, so fairly good approximation for anyone wanting to do some indoor training for a 70.3.

56-Mile TT (Greater London Loop)…

My fastest 56 Mile TT on Zwift’s ‘Greater London Loop’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. 29/50 – looks like only the serious cyclists have attempted anything long on this course. Think i might come back one day and do a serious attempt at it rather than just my normal planned training day, but that’s 7 minutes to find to get into the current top 50%. Hopefully a few slower riders will push me up before my next go. Nothing like a good challenge though.

I’m currently trying to find courses on Zwift that have approx the same elevation gain and loss as the 2017 70.3 world champs to see how i stack up over the 56 miles. This course gives approx 940m gain and loss, so fairly good approximation for anyone wanting to do some indoor training for a 70.3.

Admittedly, i wouldn’t have been much good doing a half marathon after this effort, but i’m certainly on my way, so very happy.

40km TT (Greater London Loop)…

My fastest 40km TT on Zwift’s ‘Greater London Loop’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. And inside the top 45% so fairly pleased as i was pacing for the full 3 hour training session during which i did this twice. The second time was a 1:16:09, only 2 seconds slower, that’s good pacing…
