Rip Esselstyn has finally taken the plunge and began his very own podcast. Yes folks, the Plant-Strong Podcast is finally here. Me is thinking that this just may turn out to be the very best vegan podcast ever and i’m very much looking forward to lots of future episodes.
As well as the links on the website you can also get this on Podbean. Podbean’s my absolute most favourite podcast hosting site forever, because, in truth, it’s the only one i’ve ever used.
Not my fastest ever 40km, click here for that.
For some reason Garmin doesn’t always record my fastest times as records. Maybe because Garmin takes the time from the very start of the ride and not clipped out of the middle of it like Strava does.
But whatever, i improved my Garmin 40km by a fair bit, so i’m well happy with that.
On Monday i reached Level 42 on Zwift and received the La Z Claire outfit to wear while i ride my nice bike. So yesterday i bought a set of Zipp 858 wheels and repainted the Diamondback to red to make a nice little combo.
I quite like it…
Last week i reached Level 41 on Zwift and received the ‘Rock Star Glasses’.
Not sure when i’ll get around to wearing these in game, but kinda nice to have in the wardrobe for a future silly day out on Zwift.
Yesterday i reached Level 40 on Zwift and received this snazzy new outfit to wear while i ride my nice bike.
I do like pink…
A long time ago Zwift did a challenge of riding 112 miles on a virtual Diamondback Andean Tri bike in order to get an entry into a raffle for a real world version of it. Unfortunately, i didn’t win it.
What was even more annoying was that we weren’t allowed to keep the virtual version after riding those 112 miles: which i thought was totally mean and really shit.
But now, with Zwift’s new in game shop thing, i finally got one…
And i even bought that new set of super aero Zipp wheels to make it look even better.
So now i’m finally happy, i’m riding the bike i want to ride on Zwift. Which will have to do until i win one in a raffle: because, unless i win the lottery, i won’t ever be able to afford one.
My 2018 year on Strava. Not too bad really, my best year yet so i’m happy with that. Click on pic for video version.
Yes folks, i’ve finally finished the making of my new website… Kindle Worm.
So please go and have a look and marvel at the ‘Truly Scrumptious’ webdesign (sorry, couldn’t resist that LOL ) and maybe even get inspired to read a book or two while you’re there.
Sod’s law… that i get to celebrate my 4 year Strava ride anniversary without a trainer to ride on.
I’m hopefully collecting a new replacement one from the shop tomorrow – fingers crossed.
Nice of Strava to remember though and send a nice email.
So, in all that time i’ve ridden 17,394.3 miles doing 929 rides. And there was a load of miles done unrecorded on the turbo trainer before i went onto Zwift.
So, all in all, not a bad 4 years considering i was a total newbie to proper cycling when i began – those days when 12 miles seemed like hell to ride. Me and Waldo (my bike) have come a long way since then.
