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 »

March’s Best Efforts…

March was so, so much better than February. Vice wise… i’ve finally managed to quit the vape. Yes folks, no more nicotine. Admittedly, i put on a bit of weight as i allowed myself to eat a little bit of refined crap during the withdrawal phase, but i’m slowly getting my diet back together. It’s read more »

Jaro’s Challenge…

92nd out of 211… After the ‘TrainingPeaks 70.3 Challenge’ on Rouvy, this was quite the stuff for recovery days, so no, i really didn’t try much which is reflected in my 92nd place. ‘COULD HAVE DONE BETTER!’ The teacher writes in thick red block caps all over my exam paper. But hey, done is done, read more »

TrainingPeaks 70.3 Challenge…

77th out of 887… This challenge was to ride both ‘Challenge Kraichgau’ and ‘Challenge Roth’ in race mode. Each route on its own is quite the test, putting the 2 into one challenge is a little mentally twisted – but hey, that’s what challenges are for.

Rouvy – Furka-Grimsel-Susten 2015…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Furka-Grimsel-Susten 2015’ route… While i wasn’t planning on any silly long rides for a while, i felt ok this morning after a nice lie in and as i had to conquer this one for the Rouvy career level i gave it a go and finished it off. Video quality is read more »

Rouvy ‘Professional’ level…

Just completed ‘Professional’ level on Rouvy… So i’m now at ‘National Champion’ level and for my sins have been given a bucket load of hard riding to complete – awesome stuff. This new level is definitely going to take a bit more time to complete as on top of completing 2 rather long hard routes read more »

Rouvy – El Portillon…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘El Portillon’ route… Not a bad climb if you’re just looking for a nice bit of road to complete a quick workout. I’ll be back over next few days to do this with more power, i was on a recovery ride for this attempt. #loverouvy

Rouvy – Pocol → Passo Giau…

My first attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Pocol → Passo Giau’ route… Not the most inspirational of climbs, and could certainly have done with being filmed on a really nice sunny day in better quality, but it’s a reasonable way to get through an hour interval training. Just switch off and let the road roll past. Averaged read more »
