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 ‘National Champion’ Level…

Just completed ‘National Champion’ level on Rouvy… So i’m now at ‘World Class’ level and Rouvy have been given me even more hard riding to complete – exactly what one needs to grow young. Now i’ve got to complete 6 challenges and amass 10,000 career points. This is going to take a while as there’s read more »

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 »

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 »
