    Without the challenge I would probably just nipped out for a quick 10 miler Dam you @ColinJ . it's certainly gets you out In January a 50km was still a bit of a challenge and a 50 m was a big challenge now I can do them without thinking thanks to the challenge I going to try the metric century challenge next year

    That's the spirit! :bravo:

    Consider doing what I did this year which was the metric century challenge with the 50 km challenge in tandem with it to 'fill in the gaps' between the longer rides. I did lots of 50 km rides this year which would have only been 30-40 kms in length if I hadn't had this challenge to motivate me to extend them.

    The best laid schemes, and all that ... :whistle:

    I have completed my 2015 mileage and 100 km ride targets and I was supposed to have got my final '50' of the year in yesterday but I have caught a cold and feel rather rough so I caught the train to visit my friends instead of cycling to meet them!

    It is wet and windy and my Christmas break is a-loomin' ... I should be able to squeeze that final ride in one way or another, but not until I feel better and we get an ok day.

    Thanks, part of it will be a group ride with a pub stop :smile:, it's an extra 9 miles each way. Then on the way back I'll decide how much extra to add.
