Don't know how many of you log miles on bikejournal.com but I got to thinking that maybe with all our cumulative miles it might be fun to create a virtual 50+ team for all of us that do not belong or log miles to a club. Then we could see how we stack up agains't the other teams/clubs.

Team 50+
Team Diego
Team Codger

?????

What do ya think?

I use it, but already belong to South Broward Wheelers. I know you can log to multiple clubs but I don't think you can log to more than one at a time.

I use it and already belong to Club Hypoxia, although I am not currently logging. I got tired of "riding for miles," and just wanted to ride for fun this year.

My wife and I use it to keep track of rides. It's pretty cool!

I'm a member of Team Fred over there, but it doesn't seem to be very active, so I'm more than willing to switch!

I already log my miles there on the "Bike Forums" team currently in 27th place with 49,809 miles. We did much better last year but the competition is much tougher this year. Don

It is true that we can only log miles to one team but perhaps the we could pick a particular day or week when we could all switch just to see how the over 50 bunch is doing? Don

I think that's true.

Well, don't anybody suggest Old Farts or something similiar, we don't need Dnvr pulling a muscle expressing his disdain!

This is my third year on there and I log to the Bentrider club. I must admit that the novelty of online logging has worn off for me and I'll probably stop at the end of this year.
