Bikeforums Challenge

Alright guys, here's the challenge. Starting monday,Feb 10, lets see who can log 1000+ miles by March 31. All participants need to join bikeprolog.com, and keep their log there. This challenge isn't who can get to 1000 first, or who can log the most. It's a challenge to ride 1000 miles by then. I'm sure some people will be able to blast this one out of the water, but it's a start. We'll see what can happen for awards, but right now it's fun. This is 100 percent based on the honor system. Don't log'm if you don't ride'm.
Awards(if we can get them) will be: 1st place, 1000/1000+ miles
2nd place: 800-999 miles
3rd place: 600-799 miles
4th place: 400-599
5th:0-499

Please use a computer, don't esimate your mileage based on time.

Post your username at bikeprolog in this thread so all contestants can see who's in, and know who to look for at bikeprolog.

I'm getting screwed over by bikeprolog. So far this year I have put in 1,773 miles, but it is saying that I have only done 756.9 miles, they're counting my time in saddle though which is 78:54, even though there should be 106 hours 57 minutes. :angry:

Fubar5,
post that challenge in the Month of May, we can blow that away, in just a week of riding, but right now, there no way we can beat that 1000 miles before March 30, so call that contest again in May and let see who got the legs to do it

Sheeat dude, you're a ridin fool. I've been having a poopy time trying to get in my miles so far.

If bikeprolog gives you the cold shoulder, keep a log on paper or use another log site, I don't know of any others right off the top of my head though

We'll have a part II for those poor people stuck in their homes.

Maybe we can have a trainer challenge too.

If I can help you out by sending you a period key, let me know.

Easy for you to say since you live in SC and enjoy almost year round riding weather! Should be getting real comfy there.

I have a better chance of XC skiing than I do of biking 1000 miles by that date. Let's take a look at it again in May or June.

My http://www.bikeprolog.com handle is the same as the one I use here. Another site that has a free log that others can check is http://www.big-dogs.org

Peace,

Given how hard it is for me to spend over an hour on the trainer that would be more challenging. |8^)

What if you don't count miles on the trainer? I only count time since I don't have a rear wheel sensor.

I think that due to the fact that trainers and rollers are at least 1.5x as much of a workout, those people only have to ride 666 miles! Now that is a devilish number to shoot for.

This is great, with my commmute I can do this. Add on the trainer only and I should be able to hit it too.

Can we count extra milage for hills over 6%?

To ride 20miles per day... over 49 days... hummm... Sorry but that just isn't going to happen for ole boy. The physical aspect isn't the problem. It's that I have to many other activities in my life to dedicate what's needed to "complete" the commitment.

I have family obligations, kid obligations, business commitments, gym and a mountain of other tasks that fall under my charge daily. Dammit..this would be a fun challenge.

Bummer.......

Ditto. 20 miles a day, 49 days, and maybe my marital obligations would vanish.

20 miles a day...

My commute is longer than that.

Then I would need to start keeping track of virtual miles. It's hard to consider trainer miles real miles. Boy I cannot wait for spring.

Alrighty, we'll definetly have a part II come spring time. But for right now, anybody who can participate, please do.

How should we do the trainer challenge? By time or by mileage? If time, what would be a reasonable time to shoot for?

You can do miles if you can get a percieved average speed of the trainer. Then it's just a calculation.
