    2020 Paris Zwiftbaix Race Report

    2020 Paris Zwiftbaix Race Report

    Welcome back race fans, to this the 2020 Paris Roubaix. Or at least, what would have been the 2020 Paris Roubaix, had the organisers not taken the late decision to pull the race due to mounting fears around the coronavirus crisis. Despite plenty of angry race fans taking to Twitter to vent, it was the right call to make. What followed after the announcement late on Saturday however, no one could predict...

    Possibly led by Sagan throwing the mother of all tantrums, the news from the UCI that the peloton would have to take to Zwift to compete in the race did not go down well. Sagan said on record that he "had never heard of Zwift" and that "no body puts Sagan on a turbo trainer". Unfounded rumours still circulate that Sagan also texted the Pro Rider Cool Guys 🚴🚴😎🤘 Whats App group to force other key riders to boycott the Zwift race too.

    Such is the hold that Sagan has, only Philippe Gilbert was able to speak up and encourage the group to race. Apparently Sagan simply threatened to kick Gilbert out of the group, and there ended the mutiny of the mutiny. What we were left with, dear race fans, was mutiny!

    Holy Week Cycling Challenge - The London Cobbled Classic!

    Holy Week Cycling Challenge - The London Cobbled Classic!

    If you weren't aware, this week is known as is Holy Week. Possibly something to do with Easter, but 100% because it's the week in between the Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix. In Flanders and other parts of Europe, this is the most important week of the year, bar none!

    However, this being 2020, Holy Week doesn't have quite the same importance this year. Apart from our Zwift Classics Series, there really are no races going on to speak about. This time of year we would normally be running our 'London Cobbled Classic' group ride to celebrate the best of the Flemish classics, and pay homage to pavè that is so feared and respected in the cycling world!

    Central London Lockdown Cycling Routes

    Central London Lockdown Cycling Routes

    With the lockdown continuing and the British press ganging up on law abiding cyclists, we thought it a good idea to produce a list of central London cycling routes that can be completed in around an hour, the allowed exercise time. 

    Also the roads of central London are pretty quiet right now, so this is one of the only chances you'll get to ride some otherwise busy roads in relative peace. All of the below below London cycling routes start and end at our clubhouses (cafe partners), but please pay attention to each establishments distancing rules/take away set up etc.

    All of the routes can be adapted to start and end at your home, but please make sure to adhere to official guidelines about social distancing and staying close to home. Please take it easy - you really don't want to end up in A&E right now.

    2020 Tour Of Flanders Race Report

    2020 Tour Of Flanders Race Report

    Welcome race fans, to the 2020 Ronde van Vlaanderen. It's A beautiful day here in Oudenaarde, at the finish of the 104th Tour of Flanders, as we try to process just what went down here. Surely one of the most unusual, beguiling and entertaining De Ronde's in recent memory? Forget Gilbert in 2017, this edition of the race has carved its own place in the history books.  

    Going into the 2020 edition of the race we knew it was going to be a bit... odd. If you haven't been living under a rock for the last few months, you will be aware of the truly bizarre place the world has become. Yes, the coronavirus crisis has turned the world upside down, and pro cycling has absolutely been affected. With many of the usual teams pulling out of De Ronde for 2020, we can only assume that the race organisers staged some kind of wild publicity stunt by letting what you might call, on a good day, some slightly 'amateur' cycling teams take their place.

    Dirty Wknd x All Things Ride Zwift Classics Series 2020

    Dirty Wknd x All Things Ride Zwift Classics Series 2020

    Sadly - the 2020 Classics season is not going to look anything like the above photo. Absolute titans of men and women won't be knocking the stuffing out of each other across ridiculously unridable roads and up silly steep climbs. 

    However life is all about looking for the silver linings, especially during a crisis like this one. We won't be able to stand on the Ode Kwaremont, beer in hand, screaming at tiny men on £10,000 bikes as they push the limits of human endeavour. We will however, be able to put ourselves through the ringer in our own homes (#stayhomesavelives) as we take on the Dirty Wknd x All Things Ride Zwift Classics Series!

    We're determined to make the best of this situation, and by that we mean riding tough, hilly and a little bit gravely zwift courses with friends on a Sunday morning! There will be prizes of Dirty Wknd club socks and ATR arm screens for various things throughout the series, however the aim is to try and complete all the rides.
