  8. Let's join in here ...... Did part of the RideLondon course yesterday, after the rain but in the wind ... and mostly in the dark. Lovely ride though.

    No longer used to the distance, so feeling a little knocked about. Worse because I get insomnia after long rides.

    Longest ever ride https://www.strava.com/activities/241776340 Legs feel ok, but my arse is killing me.
    I'll have to get some padded shorts and a better saddle.

  10. Can I be incredibly pompous and request that this thread contains only your ride logs for 2015? Comments on the rides, on the challenge, and on all things metrically centenarian should go in The Metric Century (100KM) A Month Challenge ChatZone

    Your ride log should show the date of each 100k ride, the distance, a route summary, your accrued points (1 point for each 100k ride, 2 points for a 200, and if anyone does a 300 you can guess what they would get!) and accrued mileage in 100k rides. Not everyone includes everything, but you get the idea. Some people include links to the rides themselves. Some good examples are here, here and here.

    You can reply to this thread with your latest ride log (having copied the previous and added your latest ride). No need to keep going back to edit posts.

    You can join in logging your 100k rides at any time, but only if you complete Jan-Dec will you be eligible for the SPECIAL SEEKRIT PRIZE. But once started, if you miss a month, then you are out until next year.

    End of pomposity.
