Richmond Libby Hill KOM

My fastest time up Zwift Richmond’s ‘Libby Hill Climb’…

Nice to show what i can do when i’m not doing my normal training workout rides.   This was done on the Tron bike while on the ‘Vegan Zwift Team’ Friday ride.   Inside the top 17% — sweeet!   Growing younger every day thanks to whole plant food.

Richmond World’s Route

My fastest forward lap time on Zwift’s ‘Richmond World’s Route’…

Nice to show what i can do when i’m not doing my normal training workout rides.   This was done on the Tron bike while on the ‘Vegan Zwift Team’ Friday ride.   Inside the top 24%, which ain’t bad for a 54 year old.   And i feel super great afterwards too.

40km TT (Innsbruckring)

My fastest 40km on Zwift’s ‘Innsbruckring’ route…

This was done on the Diamondback Andean with 858’s and in workout mode, so no power ups or draughting help and a rather heavy bike.   So i could defininitely do much better, as this also included the warm up for the 2 hour workout i was on.

Zwift Level 42

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…

Zwift Level 41

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.

Zwift Level 40

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…

New Bike

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.

4 Years Riding on Strava

Sod’s law… that i get to celebrate my 4 year Strava ride anniversary without a trainer to ride on.

I’m hopefully collecting a new replacement one from the shop tomorrow – fingers crossed.

Nice of Strava to remember though and send a nice email.

So, in all that time i’ve ridden 17,394.3 miles doing 929 rides. And there was a load of miles done unrecorded on the turbo trainer before i went onto Zwift.

So, all in all, not a bad 4 years considering i was a total newbie to proper cycling when i began – those days when 12 miles seemed like hell to ride. Me and Waldo (my bike) have come a long way since then.
