    Definitely in this challenge again for 2019, as I’m currently on a 57 month streak of doing at least a half century ride a month and don’t want to break it.

    Which is more impressive considering that the challenge itself I believe has only been going for 4 years, and I’ve only been a Cyclechat member for 35 of those months (and therefore previously unaware of said challenge). Turns out I was doing it without actually knowing about it!

    So @steverob post got me thinking, having been in the challenge from the start 48 months completed ,have I done half a century of half centuries in a row ? The answer is probably , I started cycling in Sept 2014 and fairly soon got to 50km distance but I didn't keep records back then and didn't run Strava so cant prove it . Therefore I won't count it so hopefully Feburarys ride will get me to the landmark .

    Appreciate the effort that goes into organising this and loved taking part. Like many of you I have a ride that I do if either the weather or the body is not up to strength; it happens to be 44 kms. This year I've turned about 90% of these rides into qualifying rides! A great incentive to get a few extra kilometres in and up one's annual distance.
    So, yes, I'm in for 2019. And a happy new year to all of you.

    ColinJ It's a puzzle ...

    I'll be doing it again. My standard rides round here tend to be 25-35 km so this is a good way of getting me to lengthen some of them, and it works. Sometimes I actually set out to do 50+ km. Other times I might be doing just (say) my 33 km loop but if the weather is ok and I am enjoying the ride I often decide to add on the extra distance somewhere.

    I'm in too.
  11. I'm in it again, once the foot heals, and the weather gets a little better. So I may have to double up a couple of months.

    My occasional riding pal Jay has asked that I partake once more in this, as he likes getting out and about - as this picture from the summer hopefully shows. (I'm looking into getting him a bike. :whistle:)

    Hi @Gravity Aided are you aware to qualify for a bronze star you need to do 1 50km ride each month Jan to Feb ?. Nothing to stop you joining anytime for motivation but you won't get a star just wanted to clarify that
