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 on the flatter courses, but i’m only 111lb so my overall power just doesn’t come up to much. But still, for a 52 years old that started training less than 3 years ago i’m more than pleased with my results. 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…

40km TT (Watopia Hilly)…

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s Watopia Hilly course…

Was on the Canyon Aeroad bike with Zipp 808’s. Just outside the top 55%, but then i was pacing myself for the 56 miles (great excuse). 😀

It starts at the start banner.

56-Mile TT (Watopia Hilly)…

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

Done on the Canyon Aeroad with 808’s. And inside the top 49% so fairly pleased. Going to try other bikes in future and see how they make a difference. Lots more speed left in the tank.

It starts at the start banner.

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 1000m 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.

30km TT (London Pretzel)…

My fastest 30km TT on my Zwift’s London Pretzel course…

There’s just enough space on the London Pretzel route from the start banner to do a 30km time trial before you go down the underground and hit the hilly bit…

Pretty pleased getting into the top 30% considering my age and weight. Onwards and upwards. 😀

100km TT (London Pretzel Flattened)…

My fastest 100km TT on my Zwift ‘London Pretzel Flattened’ course…

Done on the Tron bike using what i like to call the ‘London Pretzel Flattened’ route in which i let Zwift take me all around the flat part of the Pretzel Route but when i get to the barriers in the underground station i hit the down arrow to turn around just as the barrier hits the left side of the screen. This then takes you all the way around again without having to input any further direction changes…

So what are you waiting for? Get on your bike, ride ‘London Pretzel Flattened’ and post a time. Hope to see a much bigger leader board in future. But is nice to have one KOM on Zwift – so don’t hurry knocking me off. LOL

It starts a bit further around from the start banner to give a chance for a little warm up.

My Fastest 100km Ever…

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

On the Tron Bike. I really like this route, plenty to look at as you peddle around. And inside the top 39%, so very happy with that for my age and weight on a flat course like this. Current weight is 113lb so a little fat at the moment, so plenty better left in there as i work on shedding a few lbs again over the next couple of weeks.

It starts a bit further along from the start banner to give a chance for a little warm up.

My Fastest Ever 56 Miles…

My fastest ever 56 mile TT while riding on Zwift’s London Flat course…

Was on Zwift TT bike with Zipp 808’s. Just a tiny bit outside the top 40% which i’m very pleased with for my age and weight. 😀

It starts approx at the sprint banner to give a little warm up.

56-Mile TT (Volcano Flat)…

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

On the Cervelo S5 bike with Zipp 808 wheels. It’s not exactly the most interesting route, but it’s not too bad. Outside the top 50% on this one, but i’ll be speeding up over the next few weeks so hopefully should break in sometime soonish.

It starts a bit further along from the start banner to give a chance for a little warm up.
