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. 😀

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. 😀

London Classique…

My fastest forward lap time on Zwift’s ‘London Classique’ course…

Done on the Tron bike. Inside the top 37%, which isn’t too bad for this 53 year old 115lb rider on such a flat short course.

Watopia Monster…

My fastest forward lap time on my own constructed ‘Watopia Monster’ course…

It covers every single road on Watopia both ways, like the Pretzel used to do before they added the volcano and jungle extensions. I’ve put in a request to have this made into an official Watopia course so please click the link and up vote the suggestion and hopefully Zwift will make it so for everyone to enjoy. It would definitely make a great addition for fondos and the like.

The Morning After the Day Before…

So how do i feel this morning after riding 200 miles in one day?

Beat up.

My left knee is a little twingey, as is my right foot and my undercarraige is very tender indeed. Muscle wise i feel fine, a little achey in the calves but other than that nothing major at all.

What yesterday did teach me was that my muscles aren’t the problem, which is good to know, it’s the joints and seat that need to strengthen and that can only come with time. So i’m going to have to change my training program a little and put the strength work back in and get that sorted. Which will certainly mean taking a hit on the endurance for a while but it’ll be worth it in the end.

All in all though, feeling really proud of myself for a great day’s effort on the bike and doing my very best to help Zwift reach the million mile target for World Bicycle Relief.
