    Well that certainly puts garmin/strava to shame on weather stats

    @Big_Dave It might but in general the winds are much less than they were on garmin, it will also show how much it rained on your ride again not sure how accurate it is, as in 21 Aug 2013 10mm of rain on a 53 mile ride.

    Thats about an inch an hour, which is a lot, not had anything like it since, maybe subconsciously I decided not to ride in so much water after that.
    Didn't realise about the page number.

    Edit it was two rides

    Yep.........shame when people disappear and you are left wondering if they are still ok or just got fed up with cycling. It does happen. It seems to be a hobby that either holds people for life or just for a year or two until they get fed up and move on to something else.

    It's only about 3 degrees here again this morning and it's a thought to go out must admit. Will try a wee run though as tomorrow is rain and gale force winds.

    @Mo1959 I think I have to get out most days to do the Eddy Merckx, though it stands @ 36Km a day.

    Looks like the new forest 100 is going to be a little longer for me than I thought. The OH wants the car for the day and thinks it'll be OK for me to cycle to and from the event from the cottage we are staying at for the weekend. It's 'only' an extra 18.8 miles.Need to talk her round methinks.

    37 miles on top on 100, I think maybe you need to.

  15. lets all just hope that by the time it gets to 10,000 that the font size has changed because 1000 is a smaller font than 999.
    I can't see 9999 working very well, so just imaging the issues we will all be having in another 18 years time with 10,000! :laugh:
    (hoping my maths is working on a Sunday morning...:whistle:)
