    I'm challenging myself this month, January, as part of my Ironman training and maybe others would like to?

    Ride 1,000,000 meters.


    That's it. 1 million meters, or 1,000km if you like. Perhaps in the voice of Dr Evil.

    I'm doing it in a month, hopefully, maybe others will take two or a year even.

    Just post your progress, weekly or monthly :smile:
     
  2. I did 500Km's between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. So 1000Km's in the month should be do-able. I usually get over that in most months, it sounds like a good thing to keep my motivation / mileage up, so I give a tentative 'I'm in':smile:

    That's a great challenge @Tin Pot .
    I do 1000k in a month on my commute so it's no challenge for me, so I'm oot.
    But for others, a great motivation to get the miles in. :okay:

    Aww, surely it's just an easier challenge!

    Anyhow, we can compete to see who gets there first: I'm at 186,320m so far.

    Negative Like.

    You're in my neck of the woods, I've seen snow forecast a couple of days next week. Hopefully that'll slow you down!

  11. 280,000 odd so far, but the weather forecast looks promising towards the end of the week down here.

    You're on more than that aren't you? Unless I've misread /miscalculated you should be on around 640,000?
