    13 rider Thanks for keeping the thread. It has helped to my highest annual mileage just shy of 3000 miles.

    Well done everyone, superb effort. It's wonderful that such a simple idea can keep us all riding our bikes and having fun.

    Well done everybody! :bravo:

    If all of your '50s' so far have been the metric version, why not set yourself the target of getting at least one 50-miler in this coming year? It would be a significant step up if you have never ridden that far before, but if you have done at least one 50-km ride a month for a year then I'd say that you should be ready. :okay:

    I'd like to add my thanks to @13 rider for keeping score. The challenge has encouraged me to increase my previous 20-25 mile rides to the magic 31.2 miles minimum!

    Plus the occasional 50 milers when the weather is warm and the evenings are long.

    @13 rider Assume this should have been in the 2018 chatzone...

    As it was aimed at 2017 finishers I posted in that thread so everyone would get an alert given if they haven't posted in the 2018 thread yet

    Thanks buddy :smile:. Looking forward to doing a big group ride again, not done one for a while. Going to hide behind the big lads, as it looks like being a windy one ^_^

    Ah, my mistake. I thought it was just your usual end of month reminder, but targeting the 2017 riders would make no sense in the 2018 thread. Had I thought it through I might have realised that.

    I’m sure you’ll be ok matey, think of them as a nice windbreak! I was supposed to be on an 80 miler today with a few lads from work but my bottom bracket setup has died and they can’t get a replacement til Monday. Gutted....:cry:
