180km Ironman Preparation Ride

January 17, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 6:00 pm

As part of my preparation for next year’s Ironman Tenby, I am going to (attempt to) cycle 180km, using a smart trainer and Zwift. Tenby has a hilly bike course, so I will be selecting the hilly course on the island of Watopia.

If successful, this will be by far, the furthest I have cycled, indoors or otherwise.

Two additional benefits:

  • I am going to raise money for some good causes, in the form of the mental health charity, Mind and, the homeless charity, Open Door.
  • I will be live streaming, not only my screen, but a webcam of my ride as well. Prior to the ride, I will film myself being weighed and configuring my smart trainer, as an acid test of how much faffing about it would be for racers on Zwift to take these measures, as a way of reducing cheating, deliberate or otherwise.

I have provided direct links to the donation page for each charity, as opposed to using a JustGiving page, since this way all the money goes directly to the charity.

180km is a long slog, so it would be amazing to see some of you out on the road with me.

Ride On!
