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 (Tempus Fugit)

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s ‘Tempus Fugit’ route…

This was done on the Diamondback Andean with 858’s in workout mode, so no power ups or draughting help and a rather heavy bike.   I took the screen shot as soon as i created the sector so i could have a little time as KOM on my own sector — not expecting that to last for long though.

56 Mile TT (Greatest London Flat)

My fastest 56 miles on Zwift’s ‘Greatest London Flat’ course from the start banner…

Done on the Diamondback Andean with 858’s in workout mode, so no draughting or power ups on this heavy bike.   Also done on my ‘Long Ride’ workout, including the warm up and warm down, so not pushing it hard.

Knocked 1:57 of my previous time and got into the top 50%, so quite happy with that.

40km TT (Greatest London Flat)

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s ‘Greatest London Flat’ route…

This was done on the Diamondback Andean with 858’s in workout mode, so no power ups or draughting help and a rather heavy bike.   Knocked 40 seconds of my previous best but could definitely do much better as this was done on the ‘Long Ride’ workout i doing.

40km TT (Innsbruckring)

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s ‘Innsbruckring’ route…

This was done on the Diamondback Andean with 858’s and in workout mode, so no power ups or draughting help and a rather heavy bike.   So i could defininitely do much better, as this also included the warm up for the 2 hour workout i was 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.
