For the final Wednesday night Zwift ride of January, we tackled the Figure 8 route in Watopia.

We had four riders tonight (Chris, Tim, Zinj, and me).

Tonight was Chris’ first ride with SPD pedals. He is not convinced yet, but survived the hour. The nice thing is that there is no fear of tipping over on a trainer.

Zinj launched us into a conversation about flight simulators and heads up displays. I joked that my avatar received with the Rearview Mirror Glasses yesterday when I completed level 54. I was disappointed that I don’t “see” anything in the mirror. This lead us into a long conversation about bike mirrors and Varia radars.

Chris finished level 11 and earned his avatar the Basic Kit Pack 2.

In our 60 minute ride, we covered approximately 20 miles with 859 feet of climbing.
