Zwift meetups and social rides ?
I think we are all going for the Tron right now 🙂 I’m 2500m off so hope to get that done this week if possible, hence the QuatchQuest route.Posted 6 months ago
I should be good on Sunday quash quest although would have to be off the bike by 10 so a 7.30 start would work for me.Posted 6 months ago
@Robbo Dont think I’ll do Quatch on Sunday as I went up the Alpe this morning to complete the Tron. Been up it twice this week and the legs need a rest.
Will rest tomorrow then maybe something flatter on Sunday if I feel up to it. I think there was only us two interested anyway. If you fancy something chilled Sunday then let me know.Posted 5 months ago
Good work on getting the Tron mate. I am happy to do something on Sunday. I prob wont have time for a really long ride in any case but happy to do something!Posted 5 months ago
Ok lets do something then. Guest worlds on Sunday is Innsbruck and Richmond so I guess it might be best to do London or Watopia?
How about an “Out and back again” or a “Road to Ruins”? Or even a figure 8 if you are pushed for time? All should be doable in 90 minutes or less. Alternatively a London route, nothing too hilly.
Let me know and I’ll set something up, is an 8am start ok for you? or earlier?Posted 5 months ago
Out and back sounds good. I think 8 should be fine as that will take a bit over an hour so gives me time to get sorted before we head out.Posted 5 months ago
Actually can we make it 7.30. Need to set of a bit earlier than I thoughPosted 5 months ago
Ok mate I’ll set it up for 7-30am and invite some others on the off chance they want to join.Posted 5 months ago
I am inPosted 5 months ago
sorry gents… i ain’t riding at that sort of time and if i were, it wouldn’t be uphill !Posted 5 months ago
That’s not uphill Weeksy, it’s a slight rise 🙂Posted 5 months ago
I’m not about for a week so I can’t make it to that one.Posted 5 months ago
Volcano Climb doesn’t really count based on some of the stuff we’ve done on a Sunday Climbs previously 🙂 this is more Sunday PotterPosted 5 months ago
Even I don’t mind the Volcano Climb.Posted 5 months ago
After what I’ve done this week, it’s a molehill. I couldn’t face another large Sunday Hills this week, so it’s “Sunday Chills”Posted 5 months ago
Sunday Chills is great I am heading to Llandegla tomorrow so that suits me perfectly, see you virtually SundayPosted 5 months ago
Thinking of a Llandegla myself in the next couple of weeks, as I have a window of opportunity, I’ve not ridden a MTB in anger for over 3 years!! So would you recommend it, the alternative is Penmachno or the Old Marin route…whats best for someone coming back? I’m no black route rider, firmly wheels on the ground!Posted 5 months ago
Well let’s see how FoD goes tomorrow thenPosted 5 months ago
Thanks for the invite , hopefully going to the Surrey hills if it all goes pear shaped will join you.

oop north red and blue at Llandegla probably better for a wheels on ground come back, the Marin I’d do after a few times at Llandegla though both are wheels on groundPosted 5 months ago
Cheers Forge. I quite fancy Penmachno but it may be a bit remote for a solo first time back.Posted 5 months ago
I’ve only done a small part of Penmancho, llangdegla is least remote, Marin can be a bit remote and no trail centre facilities there either like Penmancho.Posted 5 months ago
Penmachno was crazy overgrown in places when I rode it last. Oop North, if you want some company at Degla give me a shout when you’re going it’s localish to me and I’ve not ridden it for a while.Posted 5 months ago
Cheers chaps, I’ll keep it all in mind. Not sure when / if it will happen yet.Posted 5 months ago
Well my last four week training block worked. Bumped my ftp from 273w to 284w. Must have been all the hills!
Shame I will prob lose the gains over the next couple of weeks as we are actually going to get away for a few days but it won’t take long to get back I am sure.Posted 5 months ago
mrhoppy will bear that in mind, normally ride solo there so be good for a change, was up today, running nice.
Looking forward to Sunday Chill now too 🙂
robbo1234biking that’s a good result, I should probably do an ftp test I think I only ever did the Sufferfest FTP test when I trialed the software back in Oct 2018Posted 5 months ago
@Robbo was it the standard FTP test or the ramp test?
Great result! I need to do one at some point, right now I’m 271 but I’ve been that for a while
See you in the morning chapsPosted 5 months ago
Ramp test but in TrainerRoad. I think they are slightly different protocols in terms of step change and starting interval. Ramp test works better for me than a 20 min test.Posted 5 months ago
Cheers for this morning chaps…it was a good pace!
Anyone interested in getting the commutes back on this week? Let me know and we can set some up.Posted 5 months ago
I can do Tuesday and Wednesday I think this week.
Cheers for the ride this morning. After the volcano I couldn’t generate any power but think I overheated a bit and gave a lot in the ramp test yesterday.Posted 5 months ago
Think we need to work on the ride descriptions Sunday Chills bit misleading, excellent pace enjoyed that this morning.
I can do Tuesday, but not Wednesday or Thursday this weekPosted 5 months ago
It was meant to be chilled but didn’t turn out that way, I think the desert flat and trying to get away from the hangers on set the pace for the day! I wasnt planning to hit the volcano hard but i got kind of dragged in keeping up with you two.
I’ll set up something for Tuesday and Wednesday…join if you can! Any preference for routes? Flat, hilly, a mix?Posted 5 months ago
Possible options with London, Richmond, innsbruck etc. I hate New York…
That’s the benefit of riding as a group you get pulled or pushed along with the flow. Not sure if Royal Pump Room 8 would work as a commute might be a touch to long.
I’d be happy with a mix some hill some flat also not a fan of NY on Zwift so that is fine for me.Posted 5 months ago
Put up some commutes for Tuesday and Wednesday, let me know if times or place needs changing.
If anyone else wants in, let me know and I’ll add you.Posted 5 months ago
Cheers for the commute this morning chaps. Some good sprint results there as well.
I might not make the morning @oop north if I got to hard on the ride tonight! If I am OK I will see you there! Got a new laptop today so prob will be so I can have a play on it even if I am very slow!Posted 5 months ago
Not a problem @Robbo, if you’re not there I may still ride, or choose something else! Out for dinner tonight so I’ll need to burn it off.
If you need a slowish one that works too, I can always do more after.
Maybe see you, thanks again for this morning, it was good to have the full crew again!Posted 5 months ago
Good Commute today enjoyed it, won’t be riding tomorrow well earned rest day or a run not sure which it will be yet.
Good to see Dangeourbrain out on a commute and having lost none of the hill climbing speed !Posted 5 months ago
I shan’t be joining you tomorrow in afraid folks. The all clear has been sounded so I’m in the office tomorrow. (I’ve even got to do manual labour!)
Good to see you all this morning though and thanks for the invite, it was good run out. You’ve all seemingly got a bit quicker in the last few weeks!Posted 5 months ago
We will keep pinging you invites Brian, just in case you can join again one morning.
Quicker?? I’m not sure about that, especially over distance, I reckon it’s the new bike helping 😉Posted 5 months ago
Good news on the all clear, felt quite good this morning despite being so very tired, a rest day for sure tomorrow.
May do this over the time it’s on https://zwift.com/events/series/7-days-of-tarmac-sl7 depending on the times of the events.Posted 5 months ago
