2018 -- Century Challenge

This is the thread for those who will not be able to complete the 2018 Century-A-Month challenge ... or those who want to do 1, 2 or a several centuries this year at whatever time works for them ... or those who complete their first century this year ...

The Century-A-Month challenge requires that a cyclist ride at least one century (100 miles) in each month of the year. But sometimes because of weather, accidents, or other commitments riding a century in each month of the year becomes impossible. And sometimes people get into cycling long distances partway through the year, but would like to join a challenge for motivation.

Even if we can't participate in the CAM challenge, it's nice to have a place to log our centuries (100-mile rides) throughout the year ... so here it is!

The challenge: Let's see how many centuries (100-mile rides), or longer rides, we can ride this year ... in any month of the year!!

Get ready ... get set ............... GO!!

I did a Century today, 100km in 5:52. the first 70 I averaged around 22km per hour, after that I was in Phnom Penh and made a few stops and struggled in traffic. I started my Strava late but my Mi fit gave me 100.49Km
My Cambodia bikes;1981 Centurion Pro Tour, 1985 Gazelle Mens Market bike, 19?? Maxwell Allroad, 2012 Fuji Stratos.

I'm currently chasing a P-12 (100K/month) and have 3 consecutive months done. Hoping for a warmup sometime this month to get P-4 done. It is currently -9 F where I live (suburbs of Chicago). 10 day forecast doesn't show us going above freezing. I may need to drive south to find suitable riding conditions before the month ends.

When we are the warmer months, then the 100+ mile rides will resume. I did 6 in 2017 so hope to top that this year.
