Rouvy – Cotos (up to Valdesqui)…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Cotos (up to Valdesqui)’ route… Another nice little mountain on Rouvy that has to be ridden for the latest ‘Vuelta 18’ challenge. This is my better go at this route having set my first time for the challenge at a much lower power, and i’m quite impressed with my read more »

Rouvy ‘Legend’ Level…

Just completed ‘World Class’ level on Rouvy… And i’m now a Rouvy Legend… And that’s it. All the levels completed, big bad boss beaten, game over, and all in 7 months – which i don’t think is too shabby. So now what? Well, i’m going to finish my month’s subscription on Rouvy as it would read more »

Hamburger Challenge #3…

28th out of 389… This was a lot of riding and awesome to get 28th place. I even treated myself to 4 vegan burgers yesterday to celebrate my acheivement – sometimes it’s ok to do a little junk food. 😀 #loverouvy #gettingfitter #growingyoung

Rouvy – Tenerife Los Cristianos – Parador Teide…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Tenerife Los Cristianos – Parador Teide’ route… Another big, tough mountain on Rouvy – ya gotta love ’em. LOL. I had to ride this one for the current ‘Vuelta 18’ challenge, which is my final thing to complete on Rouvy to get Legend level. There’s 3 more routes on read more »

Annoying Food Choices – Hot Chocolate

Now this is something i really hate – hot chocolate. Seriously people, look at the list of crap that they use for ingredients in this stuff… Tesco Instant Hot Chocolate Drink Sugar, Whey Permeate Powder (Milk), Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder (11%), Dried Skimmed Milk, Coconut Oil, Dried Glucose Syrup, Stabilisers (Dipotassium Phosphate, Guar Gum, Carboxymethylcellulose, read more »

Annoying Food Choices – Ginger

WTF is with people who peel ginger? I can’t think of anything more stupid than wasting your time and money peeling something that doesn’t need peeling and throwing away valuable food and nutrients when you send the peel to landfill or compost. Seriously people, you do not need to peel ginger. Just rinse any soil read more »

Annoying Things…

So i’ve decided to start this section of my blog as somewhere to rant about what i see in the world around me as silly, ridiculous, and even, downright annoying. There’s only so much a sane person can take, and i really don’t think it’s good to keep it all bottled up, so here i read more »

Rouvy – 2018 ROAD CYCLING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP – Men Road Race…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘2018 ROAD CYCLING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP – Men Road Race’ route… So after 2 days of HIIT sessions i was still feeling great and seeing as i had just under 2400Kj to burn to complete the latest Rouvy challenge (more on that in 10 days when the challenge actually ends) read more »

Rouvy – Riessersee…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Riessersee’ route… Another lovely ride through the Bavarian countryside, this one more on the gravel side which makes a lovely change from the roads (not that you feel any difference on the turbo). I’m not too far off that pesky KOM which i could probably get if i took read more »

Rouvy – Palmanova to Palma de Mallorca…

My current best attempt at Rouvy’s ‘Palmanova to Palma de Mallorca’ route… While there’s not much to be said for the elevation sync on this route, it is still very much an enjoyable ride for whenever you have an hour to blast out some watts on the peddles. I did originally have the KOM then read more »
