Race, Ride or Conquer
Sun 02 January 2022 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am GMT
The Hotchillee Race, Ride or Conquer Sunday Endurance Series is a series of Sunday morning rides that will build in difficulty and duration through the winter. We’ll tick off some of those bigger route badges on Zwift together.
They’ll be running throughout the winter and roll out at 0830.
We’ll start out with 90-120 minute routes and build over winter to some of the real biggies.
If you want to be at the pointy end, join Race (A) at 0830 and see how hard you can push it. If you drop off the pace, you can always fall into one of the slower groups coming along behind.
If you want a good solid pace endurance ride, join Ride (C) at 0833. This group will be led at about 2-2.5 w/kg – maybe pushing to 3 w/kg on climbs but then re-grouping, by one of our experienced Hotchillee Ride Captains. This week Greg_Davidson will be at the helm.
If you’d prefer to take things at your own pace, maybe with your own group of likeminded riders – then join Conquer (E) at 0836.
The idea, just like a good sportive, is, no matter what your pace, you should find some wheels to ride with and, with double-draft enabled, should be able to hang on and tick that route off.
You’ll be heading to Watopia this weekend for the Zwift Medio Fondo (73km/1010m)
The route initially heads out Ocean Boulevard for a nice, flat warmup. Then it’s over the Hilly KOM reverse, through downtown Watopia, and over to the Volcano for a climb to its magma-studded peak.
Descend the Volcano and head out to the Mayan Jungle for a lap in the reverse (clockwise) direction, then return to downtown Watopia by a circuitous route which includes The Esses and the Volcano Circuit.
Lastly, it’s time to head out Ocean Boulevard once more for the big finish: a climb up the Epic KOM! The route ends at the KOM banner.
