Happy Zwiftmas!

Straight away, I apologise for the title. It’s all I could come up with.

Anyway, Happy Zwiftmas! Shit, I did it again. Bugger.

Can I just say how much I love Zwift? Having used it for a few weeks now (with 10 days off in between for a man cold. This is like a normal cold, just moanier), it has me in it’s grip. I even dream about it at night. 

I have been riding bikes since I started in BMX at the age of 13, and it is rarer these days that there is something new to expereince. Well, Zwift IS something new. And exciting. And motivating.

Over the last week, I have ridden over 60 miles and although not a great amount, it is 30 miles+ more than I would normally do this time of the year. But it is not just the number; it is the quality. I have ridden harder and deeper than I would normally. Brilliant.

Evidence of me riding in front of Ian Moon. 

I also love that is it not about your bike, or having the latest widget or carbon yahoo- it is just about your fitness. Again, after years of chasing style above skill, this is new to me. Love it.

So yes, my membership is paid for, and I intend to use it at least across the winter until it gets nice out, by which time I will be buff and lighter and super speedy. OK, so maybe Zwift cant work miracles, but its a start.

I hope you all have a great Christmas and a cycling new year; if you are mad enough to take part in the Rapha Festive 500, then good luck. If not, eat, drink, and spin those legs.

2019 will be an amazing year, and I am planning lots for this site. So keep your eyes open….
