Tonight we had five riders (Charlie, Chris, Iggy, Zinj, and me) for the Flat Route in Watopia.

In our 60 minute ride, we covered approximately 20 miles with 614 feet of climbing.

Everyone was on Discord tonight. About 30 seconds before the ride began, Zinj realize that he somehow broke the power connector to his rollers. He decided to join us, just without resistance from the rollers. In Chris’ first Zwift group ride of the fall, he also hit a snag. His laptop power ran out, but he kept on riding.

Zinj filled us in on his quest for appliances. Iggy told us about his pain cave/music studio. We learned that cellos come in different sizes. Zinj also provided recommendations on how to install a latex inner tube.

Iggy earned the Flat Route achievement, which doubled his XP points for the first lap. He also moved to level 6 and earned the Basic Gloves. Chris earned the Limar Air Speed White helmet. It appears Zwift awarded the helmet to anyone above level 33 in late August and since this was Chris’ first ride since March, he collected his helmet tonight.
