    Well coach, the sad part is that I am 12 lbs heavier and 100 watts weaker then days gone by. How do I get that back?

    Brian, I was slowly increasing wattage from 200 -> 260 on the first, and from 200 -> 300 on the second hill.
    No ill intent, just trying to get back in shape.
    Super kudos for lasting that long! While zwift makes it more bearable, over 2 hours is tough.

    Hope to join again at some point.

    It was all good!! It was a nice pace but it started to seem like a lot of work near the top :)

    BTW - I am also in NH. On the coast.

    Yup.

    In my first life as a cyclist I lived in a very hilly area of Maine (near North Conway, NH). There was nothing flat there. Likely not much different then where you are.

    FWIIW I'm up early Saturday Dec. 30 riding Watopia: The pretzel route for a couple hrs. Ride time: 7:30 am Tempo everything except the radio tower climb (threshold). Join me for the suffering.

    Looks like a double workout day. Zwift than house chores than a little outside ride than PARTY!!!!

    If you want to ride this with me add "NFS" to your name.

    I am in.

    Likely will go easy on the climb as I have an outside group ride tomorrow.

    See you at the start line

    Thanks much Sir Brian of the North. That was fun, pretty hard for me for some reason. Legs will come around, I guess!!!
    Silly Zwift added party hats to everyone, sheesh and what's up with RUNNERS?????

    That was a good spin.

    Runners - they are beta testing a running version.

    In case you didn't notice, they also had us drinking out of champagne flutes rather than water bottles. Silly developers...

    Party hats...in case you ever wondered what Josh looks like in his party hat, here you go...

    January 217 Zwift course schedule - ZwiftBlog

    See you all at the banner 9:05 and depart at 9:10 EST

    Course is unchanged >> London 8

    Personally speaking, I'm doing mucho weightlifting so ze legs are not going to push that hard on hills and I'll struggle at > 2.5 watts/kg. There it is.

    To reiterate, if you are miserably out of shape feel free to weight dope but do not use that to push the pace.

    Yeehaww

    Planning to make it. I'd be fine without the flats getting stuffed up to 2.5+. If routing errors hadn't occurred the other week, I'd have popped off the back before we wrapped up. Between XC skiing, trail running and weights my the legs are far from fresh.

    Sorry I can't join y'all. I've been sick since Monday evening. Flu/Cold thing. Waiting it out. Have a good ride. Suffering with you in spirit.

    I didn't miss him and my ribs are starting to feel better ;)

    Hey Anne, that was a good one. Between the weights and running my legs were French Fried.

    Oh thank g0d ;) Kidding. You are one tough Hombre' Thanks for the riding time. Zwift is a little more fun than it should be and there is no other way you could EVER get me to ride nearly 40 miles on a freakin' trainer.

    Two hours of that kind of work inside has never been possible before. Looking at my calendar, I have a conflict for next Thursday. If I can rearrange things I might be able to make it until 10a at the latest.

    Andreas, going to miss you out there. Especially seeing you vanish up Box Hill!

    Josh, make sure your legs are shot again next week.

    Saturday morning Zwift ride anyone? (it will be snowing on messy roads with temps in the single digits in my neck of the woods)

    Thursday morning rules applied.
    Put NFS after your name to make it easier to keep track of people in the group.
    "Bicycling" jersey design to make it easier to keep track of people in the group.
    London 8 loop.
    Meet at 9:05 EST at the start/finish line. You will likely be put in the game a few hundred meters before the line. You will need to slowly roll up.
    Depart at 9:10 EST.
    Max 2.5 watts/kg on flats.
    Wait at the top of hills.
    5 min break the first time up Box Hill after crossing the KOM line.
