My standard loops round here are 25-33 kms (15.5-20.5 miles) so the half century challenge encourages me to extend some of those rides when I would otherwise just have nipped out and done a shorter one.Definitely in.
This challenge has given me a reason to get out on my bike when I haven't felt like it these past two years, and that's a good thing (mainly cause once I am out, I absolutely love it, I'm just sometimes too lazy to make that initial move).
Exactly. I have done several very hilly rides over 200 km so for me the distances are not a challenge, it is more about motivating myself to do the rides. I nearly always enjoy long rides when I do them, but I find it easy to make excuses not to!
Give me a shout the next time you're planning to come down to Leighton Buzzard. I think I could probably come up with an interesting route and ride it with you and any others who fancy a trip.If any of you fancy doing one (or more!) of your qualifying rides with me in 2018 you would be welcome to join me on any my forum rides. I post details in the rides forum, but will add reminders in this thread.
It will probably be in the second half of March. I'll let you know nearer the time. @shirokazan said that he might come along on the next one if he has rebuilt his cycling legs after their winter break.Give me a shout the next time you're planning to come down to Leighton Buzzard.
