We deserved a flat ride tonight after the conclusion of the Fall Hill Climb/Time Trial series last night. We went badge hunting today and rode the new Watopia’s Waistband route.

We had four riders (Charlie, Melissa, Tim, and me). Zinj also made a brief appearance on Discord to chat with the group.

It was a relaxed ride this evening. Charlie had a glass of wine with him for the ride.

On Discord, Melissa and Charlie discussed skiing and sailing

Zwift has put up holiday decorations. Many of the trees had lights. Tim pointed out the giant Santa and reindeer ballon. Since Melissa, Tim, and I believe in Santa, we all saw the ballon. Unfortunately, Charlie never saw Santa. Perhaps he is on the wrong list.

We all earned the Watopia’s Waistband route achievement, which doubled our XP points for the route.

In our 60 minute ride, we went approximately 20 miles with 350 feet of climbing.
