Fantastic, I really like these illustrations and the comments and had a really good laugh. This is soo much true, and I had the same feeling riding early at 4am in the morning (yawn), but felt fresh after that

Some days are better than other…. Getting on Zwiftinsider after one of my better Zwift rides and seeing Olya and PepeΒ΄s amazing illustrations combined with a great sense of humor just makes me smile 😁 And then realizing that I ( or my two small friends in Yorkshire ) might have added a small part to the story makes this a day to remember πŸ€— Who would have thought that Zwift is so much more than just riding πŸ˜‰

BooX, Pepe and I would have never found the gnomes, much less made friends with them, if it weren’t for you! Actually, I failed to mention you in mY story initially, and Leo Skyped Pepe to set the record straight. Thank you for your kind words and see you in Watopia! Ride On! πŸ˜€
