    Welcome to the 13th year of the Cycle Chat Imperial Century A Month Challenge.

    This thread is for the logging of your qualifying ride each month only.
    Please don't post anything else in this thread apart from your qualifying rides.

    It should eventually look like this one:
    2014 Century Register

    There is a Century A Month Chat thread here, for comments, planning rides, bowing out excuses etc which will keep the main Register as neat and tidy as possible.

    The challenge is to ride 1 x 100+ mile ride per month during the calendar year (January to December) to complete the challenge. Only log the first qualifying ride of each month.

    Please include the following info....Date of ride, distance of ride and a route description of your ride. (please don't just post a link to your ride, Strava, RidewithGPs etc).

    This as an example

    04/04/15 (C143) Ashford and back.

    Ashford and back Via Otford, Pilgrim's Way, Kemsing, Plaxtol, Hadlow. Yalding, Marden, Staplehurst, Headcorn, Smarden, Pluckley, Chart and Ashford.
    106.17miles. 7.04.50 Riding Time. 15.00Avg. 2431ft Elevation Gain. Max Speed 33.4mph. Pinnacle Pyrolite 2014

    To make and add a heatmap picture of your 12 qualifying rides as below, you can use linked https://www.jonathanokeeffe.com/strava/map.php to your Strava account.
    upload_2016-12-26_16-7-33-png-png.png

    A reminder of the rules:

    -A century is a single ride of at least 100.0 miles as measured on a reasonably accurate cycle computer. 99.9 miles or less is not a century.

    -Breaks/stops during the ride are permitted for refreshment/repairs/sightseeing etc but stops to sleep and stops at your home are not permitted.

    -A qualifying century cannot start before 0001hrs on the morning of the first day of the calendar month.

    -For qualifying rides ridden on the last day of the month: the 100.0 mile mark must have been passed by 2359.59 hrs on that day.

    -If you miss a month you are out of the challenge, no exceptions for any reason, riding more than one century in a month does not entitle you to miss a month in lieu.

    -Centuries ridden on rollers/turbo trainers/indoor velodromes do not count towards the challenge.

    Successful participants of the Cycle Chat Century A Month challenge are entitled to display a gold star full-d-1443009817-jpg-jpg.jpg

    If for any reason you can't edit your post when adding a newly completed ride, Please PM Shaun and ask that he allow's you to edit your post.

    Good luck to all those that enter. See you on the road.

    Gloucester
    Aged 58½ at the beginning of the year. The Raleigh Pioneer Trail 4000 continues to serve admirably, but I now think it may date from the very early 2000s.

    January 2019 (C343): 6/1/19, A classic loop starting down the eastern side of the Severn, over the Severn Bridge, through Usk, Abdergavenny, Pontrilas Army Camp, Ross, and Tewkesbury. No wind, no rain and no frost! First instalment of a possible Audax RRtY. 126.11 miles.

    https://www.strava.com/activities/2060412067

    February 2019 (C344): 12/2/19, The first 9 letters on the ABC place name challenge (Avening, Beverston, Cherington, Daglingworth, Ewen, Filkins, Great Rissington, Hinton on the Green, Innsworth. Very much in sickness recovery mode, so took it slowly. The unexpected early ice also contributed. 125.50 miles.

    https://www.strava.com/activities/2141752226

    March 2019 (C346): 19/3/19, Still struggling, but put in a long one to satisfy a number of objectives. A clockwise loop around the Severn Estuary followed by a trek up to Exhall in Warwickshire. 140.78 miles.

    https://www.strava.com/activities/2225110848

    April 2019 (C348): 8/4/19, Up into the Cotswolds at Hawkesbury Upton, then through the Water Park and the upper Coln valley. A foray across the Severn to finish. Feeling much better today. 124.75 miles.

    https://www.strava.com/activities/2275351031

    May 2019 (C350): 13/5/19, Broadway Tower, Windrush Valley, Cotswold Water Park, Elmore Lanes. 141.47 miles.

    https://www.strava.com/activities/2364978125

    June 2019 (C351): 6/6/19, Exploring lanes northwards on both side of the Severn. Mostly familiar but some new ground as well. Recovering from illness so kept it local and successfully avoided duplication! 101.21 miles.

    https://www.strava.com/activities/2428441397

    July 2019 (C353): 2/7/19, Mainly Worcestershire. Redditch, Exhall (again), Holt Fleet (Severn crossing), and return. 127.64 miles.
