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 a nice little video.
And this little picture is all i get for riding my virtual bike up a virtual mountain 25 times.
So why do it, because we’re masochists, why else?
I started this challenge on 14th October, that was the first time i rode up the mountain, and i finished today on the 14th November. Which i’m quite pleased with.
To be honest, i’m not in any rush to see that mountain again any time soon. I’m now — officially — totally fed up with it. Riding along at 4-5mph for all those hours is just plain tedious. So yeah, you have to be a bit of a masochist to do this — especially in one month.
But done is done and to see this at the top of the 25th ascent…
…makes it all worth while.
What’s next, well i’ve gone and broke the turbo trainer. That’s 2 turbos in 2 months. At least this one is under guarantee still. But i’m gonna be without a turbo for a while when i send this back, so i’m looking forward to some nice treadmill time as i really need to get running again, and i’ll also have a go and see if i can somehow get the old Turbo Muin cobbled back into some kind of working order until i get a new turbo sorted.
