The challenge is open to anyone who feels up to completing a 100KM ride by the 31st January 2008 and a minimum of one a month from then on. Your first ride must be in January, no doubling up in the following month to catch up. You must ride one metric century 100KM (62.18 miles) per month to successfully complete the challenge. Simply log every ride of 100KM or more and award yourself a point for each 100KM ridden. The aim of challenge is to serve as a motivator. There is a competitive element whereby the person with the most points by the end of 2008 may receive a virtual pat on the back from other participants.* Register your interest by creating your own post and then edit it, throughout the year, with the details of each new ride. The rules are: 1. At least one metric century each month. 2. Each metric century is worth 1 point. 3. Double centuries are worth two points and so on. 4. For very long continuous rides, use the completion date to log the ride. 5. 50KM on Saturday and 50KM on Sunday is not a continuous ride! Your post might look something like this: Or you could also just put your totals at the bottom of the post: Try to keep the thread limited to the details of your rides. A separate thread is available for commentary, feedback, moans and encouragement; this thread may be tidied up from time to time to keep it ‘on message’. * The pat on the back element is dependent on the goodwill of the other participants, which could be non-existent if the winner makes the rest of us look really bad!
