    Spied a Wheeler

    Passed 4 wheelers today. Not sure who first one was in a Johnstone gilet in BoW, then Boyd, Dave C? and then Mike.
  5. Earlier
  6. Tonights results - Jamie with the win and i think also PBs for this TT series for Eric and big Al. Well done! Jamie - 9:20.5 Me - 9:25.1 Richie - 9:52.4 Eric - 10:17.4 Alan T - 10:33.0 Alan C - 10:41.0
  7. Ive sent an invite - if you go into the companion app you will he able to accept it. Once you do that on wednesday go on zwift and start riding then at about 5.55 a pop up will appear on screen asking if you want to join meetup - click yes and then you will be transported to start line
  8. Short 20km meetup on Wednesday. Select TT bikes for this one so no drafting. Course is Tempus Fugit and we roll out easy for the first half until we go round the big roundabout - the start of Fuego Flats reverse segment is shortly after this then it is approx 7km and flat to the end of the segment. Results based on the time on the segment leaderboard. After this a couple of km still to go to cool down. If using a road bike to try to gain advantage by drafting then you get a 2 minute penalty!
  9. Normally, we would ride to Sinclair Street for an overall distance of about 60 miles. This time round, it’s the bigger loop in Watopia for 95km, (60-ish miles, but a lot more climbing). Follow me on Zwift to get an invitation if you haven’t already had one. We’ll set off in groups, 5 minutes apart, and try to keep the pace steady. I’ll need a leader for each group. I’ll join the second group.
  10. You need to follow me in Zwift to get an invite.
  11. will try and work out how to join you
  12. This weeks results for anyone not on the whatsapp group Me - 9.26.4 Jamie - 9.26.7 Stuart - 9.46.8 Richie - 9.47.1 Eric - 10.18.6 Al - 10.46.6

  14. Thanks for arranging Alan. Enjoyable couple of hours although my companion app wasnt working so couldnt send messages Unfortubately cant turn the sticky draft on or off once the ride starts
  15. Thanks Tom. I’m not sure if that would work for multiple bunches. As for switching off the sticky draft, again, I don’t know. Maybe Iain MacT would know?
  16. Tech and wine issues from the night before!! Opening the second one is never as good an idea as it seems at the time😳 Could you make it a sticky ride for most of it, then a free for all for the last 5 or 10km? That would be a bit more like a reliability ride.
  17. Actually I was in my conservatory and it was freezing and I had full winter kit , did enjoy the ride though
  18. You can find the reliability routes on the club rides section. Saw your run today on strava. So I guess you’ve found those already. The TT courses, you’re already familiar with.
  19. Yeah, the options are really limited unless everyone can ride at the same pace. We know they can’t, so we need to make an adjustment. If it’s cold in your garage, you could put a jumper and a hat on. 😂😂😂
  20. Think that was ok , re start you really can’t expect longer than 5 minutes sitting in a garage , it’s too cold so not sure what changes you can do to change that
  21. Enjoyed that. Thanks for organising, Alan.
  22. The second reliability run on 14th Feb will be hosted by RCCK, and it's 76 km round the Big Foot Hills route in Watopia. Follow D.Hodders (RCCK) to receive an invitation if you haven't already got one.
  23. That worked reasonably well. The ride was opened up to other clubs, so we ended up with 2 bunches, a total of about 30-ish riders. The plan was changed to a rolling start with the second group rolling at 1w/kg for 10 minutes then picking the pace up. There are some things I would change for next time round. The rolling start didn't work particularly well, and the gap probably wasn't big enough, but we'll know better for next time. As it turned out, the weather IRL today would have been almost perfect for a real reliability run, dry, but cold with a slight breeze. What a contrast to the last 2 years.
  24. Yeah it could work. With the time taken from the segment start to finish it is pretty accurate on the leaderboard whereas meetup results (when it is set to show results) tend to be wrong when it is a close finish due to everyone starting the meetup in a slightly different place. To get the results, it just needs the person keeping track of times to stop pedaling at the finish of the segment before the leaderboard vanishes from their screen (and to have the meetup finish at least a 1km beyond this so the leaderboard isn't populated by thousands of other rider names as will happen when the meetup finishes)
  25. Could this work for virtual confined events? There’s some specific longer segments around that could lend themselves to TT ing, but could it be the basis for an event?
