Rouvy – Boccadasse – Chiavari via Boschetto…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Boccadasse – Chiavari via Boschetto’ route… Another nice route i had to ride to complete one of Rouvy’s challenges. A good ride with plenty to look at along the way. #loverouvy

Rouvy – Crocetta d’Orero – via Sant’Olcese…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Crocetta d’Orero – via Sant’Olcese’ route… I’m currently partaking in one of Rouvy’s challenges and this is one of the routes to ride to complete it. And i must say, i really enjoyed it. A really nice ride with plenty to look at along the way. #loverouvy

April’s Best Efforts…

April’s been quite a pleasing month. Vice wise… Onto a fully raw diet now, but had to go back on the vape to do it. It seems at the moment it’s one or the other. I just crave bread, beans and potatoes as soon as i quit nicotine, and the cravings are intolerable so i read more »

BikeLab Challenge…

81st out of 505… Quite a nice challenge. I didn’t push for any fast times, just choosing to ride each route on my normal training plan. So i’m more than happy to come 81st. #loverouvy

Rouvy – Uschl…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Uschl’ route… Totally different to my normal favourites in this route being a totally flat TT kind of thing. But it was fun just to see how quick i could go over 10 miles. I really do have a massive disadvantage over larger riders as my watts/kilo don’t count read more »

Spring Classics #2 Challenge…

28th out of 757… This was a hard challenge to complete and only 61 people managed to reach the target of riding at least 815.86 miles from 18.03.2018 to 22.04.2018. In doing so i climbed 45,992 feet, which isn’t too shabby for a distance only challenge. #loverouvy

Rouvy – Superbagneres…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Superbagneres’ route… You gotta love these scenic Pyrenees climbs. It’s so worth the effort to ride this, even if only virtually, as it’s such a beautiful bike ride. It’s quite a shame that so few have ridden it – even on Rouvy only 155 people have bothered, of which i’m read more »

Rouvy – Schmelz Part 2 of 2…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Schmelz Part 2 of 2’ route… What goes up, must come down. This one is a lovely downhill to enjoy after all the climbing – go on, you deserve it. 😀 Rouvy is beginning quite a big crush for Austria within me. The parts of Austria i’ve so far experienced read more »

Rouvy – CostaAmalfi…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘CostaAmalfi’ route… This place is beautiful. If i could afford it i’d love to just jump on a plane and go and ride it. Great ride. #loverouvy

Rouvy – PlateauBeille…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘PlateauBeille’ route… A really lovely 4104ft of climbing to be enjoyed in the beautiful scenery of the foot hills of the Pyrenees. This is why i love Rouvy so much, i get to ride the classic climbs that i can’t afford to go to just yet. One day i’ll do read more »
