We headed to the Makuri Islands this evening and rode the Castle to Castle route.

With another beautiful day, we had a small crowd (Charlie, Tim, and me). None of us were able to escape work and ride outside before dark.

This was Charlie’s first Zwift ride since the spring. Fortunately, his equipment was right were he left it, including a much needed towel.

My legs were recovering from yesterday’s TT, so Charlie and Tim dropped me on the first climb.

Our Discord conversation covered a variety of topics including the new Zwift log in screen, yesterday’s TT, Wahoo/Garmin cycling computers, and Tim’s recent adventure hiking Mount Greylock.

Charlie earned the Castle to Castle route achievement, which doubled his XP points for the first lap.

In our 60 minute ride, we covered approximately 20 miles with 750 feet of climbing.
