Zwift Climbs…

In this section i’ll be adding my best efforts on all the ‘Zwift Insider Verified’ climbs over the coming weeks – or maybe months.

It should be fun seeing what a 53 year old can do with this. I do admit to having the advantage that i’m only 115 lbs and i’m quite fat at that weight, my racing weight is about 110lb so i will be losing a fair bit of weight in the new year and hopefully really crushing some of these climbs big stylee.

Check back soon. Ride on! 😀

It’s Official, i’m a Masochist…

And this little picture is all i get for riding my virtual bike up a virtual mountain 25 times.

So why do it, because we’re masochists, why else?

I started this challenge on 14th October, that was the first time i rode up the mountain, and i finished today on the 14th November. Which i’m quite pleased with.

To be honest, i’m not in any rush to see that mountain again any time soon. I’m now officially, totally fed up with it. Riding along at 4-5mph for all those hours is just plain tedious, so yeah, you have to be a bit of a masochist to do this, especially in one month.

But done is done and to see this at the top of the 25th ascent…

…makes it all worth while.

What’s next, well i’ve gone and broke the turbo trainer. That’s 2 turbos in 2 months. At least this one is under guarantee still. But i’m gonna be without a turbo for a while when i send this back, so i’m looking forward to some nice treadmill time as i really need to get running again, and i’ll also have a go and see if i can somehow get the old Turbo Muin cobbled back into some kind of working order until i get a new turbo sorted.

23rd Street Climb…

My best effort up Zwift’s ’23rd Street’ climb…

Done on the Emonda with Bontragers while i was supposed to be doing a recovery ride because my legs still haven’t recovered from the Fondo, but managed to be just inside the top 34%, which i’m ok with for now. I’ll be back on some lighter wheels sometime when i don’t have knackered legs.

For more of my climbing, there’s the ‘Zwift Climbs’ section of my website which i plan to be adding all the Zwift climbs to over the coming weeks – it’s all good fun. 😀

Epic Reverse Climb…

My best effort up Zwift’s ‘Epic Reverse’ climb…

Done on the Pinarello with 808’s while doing the whole Pretzel fondo thing and managed to be just inside the top 25%, which i’m happy with for now. I’ll be back on some lighter bikes and wheels soon when i don’t have to worry about pacing myself.

Hilly Forward Climb…

My best effort up Zwift’s ‘Hilly Forward’ climb…

Done on the Pinarello with 808’s while doing the whole Pretzel fondo thing and managed to be just inside the top 22%, which i’m happy with for now. I’ll be back on some lighter bikes and wheels soon when i don’t have to worry about pacing myself either.

Hilly Reverse Climb…

My best effort up Zwift’s ‘Hilly Reverse’ climb…

Done on the Pinarello with 808’s while doing the whole Pretzel fondo thing and still managed to be just a tiny bit outside the top 22%, which i’m happy with for now. I’ll be back on some lighter bikes and wheels soon when i don’t have to worry about pacing myself either.

Radio Tower Climb…

My best effort up Zwift’s ‘Radio Tower’ climb…

Done on the Tron bike and managed to be a tiny bit outside the top 17%, which i’m happy with for now. I’ll be back on the Emonda once i’ve lost all this fat.

Epic Forward Climb…

My best effort up Zwift’s ‘Epic Forward’ climb…

Done on the Tron bike and managed to hit the top 20%, which i’m happy with for now. Will definitely be going up here faster in the future.

Box Hill Climb…

My best effort up Zwift’s ‘Box Hill’ climb…

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 14%, which is pretty good for a 53 on the Tron bike after a hard race and a hard week of riding. Will definitely be coming back to this one on the Emonda with the 202’s and 404’s and seeing how well i can do when i’m much fresher.

But a good start to my ‘Zwift Climbs’ section of my website which i plan to be adding all the Zwift climbs to over the coming weeks – it’s all good fun. 😀
