Hi guys, I’m currently level 7 in Zwift. I have my challenge set to the Everest challenge.
I started off free-riding but I’ve been liking workouts lately, and I’m trying to see if there is a way to maximize workouts by using them to ALSO accumulate elevation for the Everest challenge?
On another group someone wrote this in response to someone’s question:
“If you do training workouts using ERG just select the Alpe as the course. Efficient way of gaining elevation metres without having to blast yourself on the Alpe each workout”
Does that mean that I can, for example, pick the “Road to Sky” Watopia course for my workout and accumulate 3428 miles climbed in that workout? Or pick the “Jungle Route” and turn right at the start of the alp (can you even ‘turn’ when doing a workout, I don’t recall if it lets you pick your route options?)
The only thing I’m sure about is that it seems that there is 15-17 miles of riding required before even getting to the alp turnoff, so I don’t know how I’d do this with a Zwift workout.
Honestly I’ve only just started even being able to ride for over an hour (I think my longest ride is 1hr 15 min so far)
Any tips on using workouts to rack up more elevation meters?
