The 2005 challenge has been posted on Activebody.org (just as last year)

Log in and start posting your miles and see how far you can make it by the end of July!

Wow! Have you saw the guy with 759 miles in 5 days? That's around 150 miles per day! That's a lot of miles!

Okay, just to see how schooled I'd be, I signed up for this thing (ok, it's really just because I just bought a computer and can actually track miles and I'm chronically bored) but what is the final goal for miles? According to the site I'm at 5.1% after riding over the weekend, but I don't feel like doing the math to figure out what that comes out too...

Yeah, so I'm not going to make it, but was still liking recording the miles and stuff... What's up with the activebody site? I can't seem to get it to load from anywhere, even pinging it just times out...

My serious RAGBRAI training always starts around the TDF. I ramp up on my miles up to and finally through RAGBRAI. Then, unfortunately, life catches up with me and I ramp back down afterward.

I just got the computer, so it's the first time that I've been able to see what I ride - that makes me want to go further and further. The challenge was a good motivator, too...

Hmmm, you should specify a white background behind the main body of the page. Some browsers (like NS and Firefox) default to grey instead of white, so it makes the site look funky if you are on a non-IE browser.
