Perhaps for you juveniles, but I would have to go another 5, and at the speed I ride, maybe another 6.

If you are going to get into metric then maybe we should talk about riding our weight in kilograms or our heighth in centimers or deci-meters or go back to inches.

Just when I thought I had escaped metric, I started riding brevets, and it's all in metric: 200k, 300k, etc.

So...if your height is 178cm, you should ride 178 Km. Othewise known as ride 100,000 times your height.

Riding <your height in inches> miles would be easier. (Otherwise known as ride 63,360 times your height.)

Weight in KG's-Metric age-Or whatever you want- Doesn't matter providing you do it.

But Someone did suggest a good one- Ride your age in height climb X 100 so 50---Climb 5,000 ft. Disadvantage to us older ones but We can count on experience to get us through it- Or cheating.
