So straight back onto Zwift today to get the extra ‘Drops’ to buy the 858/Super9 wheelset that i unlocked at level 45:
Best looking bike on Zwift IMHO.
Just have to see how much faster i go now, not that i care about speed when i look so damn cool.
I reached Level 45 on Zwift and was finally allowed to buy the P5X:
Not sure how much faster i’ll go on it, but it looks cool and looks are always more important than speed.
And i also unlocked the Zipp 858/9 wheels, but sadly i’m a little short on the drops to buy them at the moment. So a little more peddling to do before i have the P5X looking proper cool.
I reached Level 44 on Zwift and received a nice new suit to wear while i ride around. There’s three different colours, but i like this one:
And i also unlocked the Safety Bike but some utter dick at Zwift thinks i should pay 3,550,000 drops for it:
I was looking forward to riding around on that, but i ain’t paying that much. Ridiculous!!! Utterly fucking ridiculous!!!
I reached Level 43 on Zwift a little while ago and received a silly hat to wear while i ride around. So i thought what better an occasion to dig out the Buffalo bike and wheels and look totally silly:
I have no idea what is going through the mind of the idiot at Zwift who thinks that people who have worked their butts off to get to level 43 would want a silly hat as a reward for all their efforts.
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 actual fastest ever 40km.
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.
