First Impressions Riding with Zwift

zwift

I recently received my beta invite to try out Zwift. Coincidentally, the same day my speed/cadence sensor came in the mail. So over the weekend I gave it a try and let me tell you, I’m pretty happy with it overall considering it’s an early beta. The setup was pretty self-explanatory, especially if you use…

Any Cyclists out There Trying Zwift?

zwift

I stumbled across some conversations about Zwift recently and looked it up. Apparently it’s a video game you install on a computer and you race against others on your trainer. It’s currently in invite only beta, but I applied yesterday and got access immediately. The people I’ve seen discussing it seem to really enjoy it.…

2015 Tour of Sufferlandria Summary

ToS

Well this past Sunday concluded the Tour of Sufferlandria. The tour was pretty amazing overall. I pushed as hard as I could, I set several personal bests, and I met a lot of cool people. There really was a lot of community around this event! I’m happy that the riding is over and I’m enjoying…

2015 Tour of Sufferlandria – Stage 9 Finale

ToS

I did it!! One of the hardest things I’ve ever done fitness wise! Hundreds of sprints, many miles, many hours. The 2015 Tour of Sufferlandria (ToS) is complete. I really suffered today.

2015 Tour of Sufferlandria – Stage 7

ToS

Well, Friday brought about stage 7. I’m really starting to feel it and my legs are extremely heavy. But I really dug in and managed to pull my stats back up over 18mph. I’m not sure that is a great idea, as Saturday brings about Stage 8 with 3 parts for over 2.5 hours of…

2015 Tour of Sufferlandria – Stage 6

ToS

The struggle is real! Six stages in to the ToS, and we’re finally over the halfway point. While there are 9 stages and you would logically think that halfway was in the middle of stage 5, you’d be mistaken! You see, the last two stages are horrendously imbalanced in terms of length, so it was…
