903 miles/1503 points for May. It's been a fun month. No freezing temps, not too much rain and only one hail storm.

As of last night, I was 103rd nationally. 1203 miles for the month. It's fun and if it gets more people to cycle, then all the better.

Have you tried to add them manually? Works easily for me. Go to the spot on the National Bike Challenge page where you log your miles, click "log miles". At the top right of the pop-up you'll see two options. Both give you a calendar thing. Then go back to the day you rode on, click on it, and then add your miles in. I can see why people would prefer to let Endomondo or whatever do that for them, but it's not hard to do it by hand.

I'm at 1,188 pts #108 locally, 656 nationally.

I manually enter my mileage on the log miles form...to go back to previous weeks you can hit the button with the vertical lines in the upper right corner of the form...

Hope that helps.

What's with some places being crazy involved with the National Bike Challenge. I know some cities just have a lot of cyclists and are going to be well represented, but Wisconsin and Florida have some smaller cities with cray rep.
