Gotta say I’m pretty stoked for the new OL rides!!

Given the series title “Classic Climbs of France” I’m wondering if this is gonna be a more “traditional” replication of the climbing experience. Sort of a Pro Ride/OL hybrid where our host’s power is replicated and adjusted to our 4DP profiles. :pray:

Excellent stuff again Rupert.

Since we’re not getting much of a summer here in Scotland, it’s a great set of rides to hit.

It should be interesting climbing the real Alpe De Huez as I’ve climbed Zwift’s version and it took me 1:45 minutes.
Also I accessed the plan from the app. All the rides were on the last week of August.

same here

cuz it’s not really a “training” plan. It’s just a way to get the rides into your calendar. Then you can move them to whatever works for you. That said, we’ll all need to wait for the new OL vids to be released so we can add them to our calendars too.

Thank you Rupert! I’m looking forward to the new on-location rides! I really like the OL, especially as I was inspired to ride a bike by Mike Cotty’s Col Collective videos when I was a teenager (2014/2015).

All going to plan, I’ll be finishing the L’Etape du Tour atop the Col de la Couillole on Saturday and can look forward to reliving the suffering the day after I return home :smiling_imp:

Interesting as it is in the Training Plan area. The good part is that you can move them around!

Training plan link updated and contains all 5 currently available workouts on consecutive days giving you the flexibility to reschedule them when you want.
You will need to add the 3 new ones manually as we release them. They will also be visible as homepage cards:

Looks great and I’m excited to ride the new content! I’ve found Z’s climb portals a bit psychadelic and would much prefer a ProRide style beasting from Sir Standslot @michael.cotty

I’ve fingers crossed for a range of OL famous climb rides as a new niche for SYSTM :crossed_fingers:t3::crossed_fingers:t3:

If we get to descend part of Alpe D’Huez can we do it as Mr Cotty and hopeful not from Tom Pidcock a few years ago when he went down it like a madman don’t think my Kickr Bike could take the downhill without snapping in half

I did his Gran Canaria rides in the last couple of weeks all were just fantastic and a bit different to the usual On Location rides

I like going “pedal to the metal” on the Zwift descents to see how high a speed I can attain. Using 53x12 I can typically reach 50 something mph for parts of the downhill. No risks training indoors; cause you can’t crash on Zwift.
