Tonight’s adventure took us to Makuri Island. We rode multiple laps of the Two Village Loop. The route had a lot of dirt roads, which slightly reduced the overall mileage from our average.

On Discord, we had an entertaining conversation. Tim is battling mice around his hot tub. We all shared our experiences combatting mice. One can only try to contain them.

Of course, last night’s TT was discussed. I still find it incredible that Melissa and Andy tied on both laps. They were not even riding together.

We had a detailed discussion of helmets, sweat, skull cap vs. cycling caps, and ultimately cycling laundry. It honestly was a more exciting conversation than it sounds!

Tim and I discussed a bit of the Witcher series, mostly about filming timelines. Melissa is planning to watch the show, so we avoided spoiling it.

Henry and Zinj earned the Two Village route achievement, which doubled their XP points for the first lap.

At the 60 minute mark we had covered approximately 18.3 miles with 607 feet of climbing.

Tim encouraged us all to join the Wahoo Climb Mission. The event runs through February 24th and you need to ride 20,000 feet to complete it. Our Saturday morning Zwift ride will cover almost 3,000 feet, so that will knock off around 15% of the mission.

Don’t forget about the race tomorrow night at 6 PM. It is the long version of Stage 5 of the Tour de Zwift.
