Zwift TT’s…

The various 40km, 100km, 56 mile & 112 mile TT courses i like to ride on Zwift, and my best times.

I know, i suck at TT’s, but i’m only 115lb 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.

So why not jump on board, set some times, enjoy riding them and i’ll see you on the leader boards. Ride On…

40km TT (Richmond World’s)…

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s ‘Richmond World’s’ course from the start banner…

Done on the Tron bike. Only just inside the top 57%, ouch, but i’m ok with that for now as i was pacing for a 3 hour ride and i’m also taking it easy on the bike at the moment while concentrating on my running.

I forgot to make a note of the elevation gain – will remember next time.

56-Mile TT (Richmond World’s)…

My fastest 56 miles on Zwift’s ‘Richmond World’s’ course from the start banner…

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 47%, which i’m happy with for now as i’m taking it easy on the bike at the moment while concentrating on my running.

I forgot to make a note of the elevation gain – will remember next time.

40km TT (London Classique from Start Banner)…

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s ‘London Classique’ course from the start banner…

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 48%. It’ll do for now on such a flat course that has so much racing on it.

It’s 132 meters of elevation gain.

My Fastest Ever 40km…

Just managed my fastest ever 40km which i set on Zwift’s ‘Volcano Flat Reverse’ route…

In the top 42% on the leader board, which i don’t think is too bad for now on such a flat course.

Done on Tron bike with a fair bit of draughting going on with the Tour de Zwift event. Getting closer to that hour though.

56-mile TT (Road to Ruins)…

My fastest 56 miles on Zwift’s ‘Road to Ruins’ course…

Done on the Cervelo S5 with 808’s which turned out to be 0:2:27 per lap slower than my usual Tron bike. Added to the Cervelo woes i sacked out for the last 90 minutes to save myself for my charity ride on Saturday (it’s a great excuse so…. 😀 ) which left me just outside the top 56% – which is pretty poor but not too bad considering.

I checked on the leader board and if i just did each of the 3 laps at the Tron bike speed i would be in the top 37%. So i’ll definitely be looking forward to revisiting this course in the future and i won’t be riding the Cervelo any more.

Quite an enjoyable course with 2732 feet of elevation gain.

40km TT (Road to Ruins)…

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s ‘Road to Ruins’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 41%, so pretty much normal for me.

Quite an enjoyable course with 392 meters of elevation gain.

40km TT (Watopia Figure 8)…

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

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 43% – again. I keep getting this top 43% on so many courses.

Quite an enjoyable course with 331 meters of elevation gain.

40km TT (Watopia Mountain Route)…

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

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 50%, which is ok for a first attempt. I’ll be back.

It’s 991 meters of elevation gain.

56-mile TT (Watopia Big Loop)…

My fastest 56 miles on Zwift’s ‘Watopia Big Loop’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. Just inside the top 70%, which is pretty poor. All the new training things i’m doing are really having an impact on the cycling and running and after one lap i just couldn’t hold the pace i planned for the workout. So i’m just going to have to keep plugging away until my legs get used to their new lifestyle and the cycling and running catch back up to where we left off.

But it’s a great course to ride 56 miles on – you won’t get bored.

It’s 4519 feet of elevation gain.

It starts at the start banner.

40km TT (Watopia Big Loop)…

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s ‘Watopia Big Loop’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 43%, which is pretty good for now. Managed to hold on to full pace for the first lap before i sacked out so unlike the 56 mile version this one is representative of where i’m currently at.

Nice course, plenty of variation.

It’s 659 meters of elevation gain.

It starts at the start banner.
