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! 😀

Radio Tower Climb…

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

Done on the Tron bike. Knocked 22 seconds off my previous best and moved up to top 12%.   Quite happy with that for now.   I’ll be back on the Emonda once i’ve lost the last of my winter muffin top.

For more of my climbing, there’s the ‘Zwift Climbs’ section of my website which i plan to be adding all the Zwift climbs eventually — it’s all good fun.

NYC KOM Forward

My new best effort up Zwift’s ‘NYC KOM Forward’ climb…

This was done on the Emonda with the Meilenstein’s during my 2 hour ‘Medium Workout’.   In the top 56%, which is ok for now as it was only done during a workout.

Watopia Volcano KOM

My new best effort up Zwift’s ‘Volcano’ climb…

This was done on the S5 with 454’s during the ‘Vegan Zwift Team’ Friday ride.   I took 28 seconds off my last time and now inside the top 9% — at 54 years old i’m pretty pleased with a cherry on top with that result.

Watopia Uphill Sprint Casey Verified

My best effort up Zwift Watopia’s ‘Uphill Sprint Casey Verified’ climb…

This was done on the Tron bike during the ‘Vegan Zwift Team’ Friday ride.   I knocked two seconds off since my last blast at it 7 days ago, so i think the training’s going well as i’m now the tiniest of tiny bits outside the top 10% — pretty sweeet for a 54 year old!

No, i’ve no idea who Casey is, but thanks for doing the segment, Casey.   It’s an awesome little climb to slam out a few watts on.

Watopia Hilly Reverse KOM

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

This was done on the Tron bike right at the end of a rather exhausting ‘Vegan Zwift Team’ Friday ride.   Inside the top 11.5% — not too bad considering.

Richmond Libby Hill KOM

My fastest time up Zwift Richmond’s ‘Libby Hill Climb’…

Nice to show what i can do when i’m not doing my normal training workout rides.   This was done on the Tron bike while on the ‘Vegan Zwift Team’ Friday ride.   Inside the top 17% — sweeet!   Growing younger every day thanks to whole plant food.

Richmond 23rd Street KOM

My fastest time up Zwift Richmond’s ’23rd Street Climb’…

Nice to show what i can do when i’m not doing my normal training workout rides.   This was done on the Tron bike while on the ‘Vegan Zwift Team’ Friday ride.   Inside the top 19%, which this old 54 year old is quite happy with.

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.

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.

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. 😀
