- 500 Mile a month.
You can easily edit your Endo stats after each ride on the website, Tony. Go to the ‘Training’ tab and it’ll show your most recent ride(s). There’s an ‘Edit’ tab on the right side of the map – press that and adjust the bit that’s wrong. Press ‘save’ et voila!!Posted 4 years ago
hows everyone doing* couple of days to go to middle of the month 😉
I’m not doing so well at the moment, bad weather and lack of motivation means I’m only at 180miles so a bit behind at the moment, hopefully you’ll all incentivise me to do better!
*I’m not on endomondo so not sure I can see everyone elses?
EDIT – just realises I can see the stats 🙂Posted 4 years agoscandalousMember
200 here. on target for 440 this month.Posted 4 years ago
Better than last year. I think that bar a few short rides, no proper mileage happened until after the snow went in April last year so feeling much more on top of things!
500 miles a month is a lot to balance with work/kids etc but don’t loose heart just yet people, the mileage will pick up as the weather improves!zangolinMember
I’m guessing most people are doing this off road? or is it a mix. Definitely a lot quicker + easier to rack up the miles on the road – although I think I am stating the obvious there!Posted 4 years ago
485 miles + 23,000ft climbing so far this year for me – 95% on the road at the moment though.zangolinMember
zangolin, I wondered who that was, at the top of the list….impressive miles. are you unemployed………..
Ton – lol – no 😀 – just always make the time to ride. Little on the way to work then an hour or 2 on the way back, couple of longer rides on the weekend. Not massive miles but it all adds up. Always helps living a mile or so from where I work so – it could be a 1 mile ride in or a long 30 odd miles on the way back. Lucky that Herefordshire has hundreds of miles of country lanes and every type of terrain you could want – from rolling hills to the long climbs of the Black Mountains.Posted 4 years agopaulmgreenSubscriber
We’ll I’m a little behind where I would like to be but put in a good few miles this weekend, so hoping to recoup a few miles in the second half of the month as only managed 118 so far….. January is a busy month for me though so realistically I may struggle to get much past 400 ….. But fairly confident I can make up the annual total over summer !
Must admit though the Challenge helped my motivation last week (when I realised how far behind I was !) …….Posted 4 years agoMary HingeMember
155 miles so far, would have been 200 if it wasn’t for last week’s black ice fetching a few of us off on the Sunday morning road ride, we took an early bath!
Should add another 150 miles this week if I get my commutes and Sunday ride in 🙂
I CBA with Strava and Endo, as I already upload to Garmin, or is there an easy way of automatically copying it over?Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
Just thought I’d follow up on this one.
I’ve just uploaded GPX files for my January riding so far to Endomondo and joined the STW 500 mile a month challenge. I’m well down on my own targets miles for the month and I was expecting everyone else to be romping ahead, but (ignoring the top 7 or 8 ) it looks like I’m in the (rather slack?) majority…
I was expecting most of you lot to have put in huge mileages…
What are everyone’s plans to eek out more mileage in the next few (Colder?) weeks/months?
I’ll admit most of mine so far have been commuting and the odd road ride, I’m planning to get out on the MTB for some night rides and crank out some more riding at the weekend, Tuesday night I hit the local outdoor velodrome for some Oval action, but it all seems like a relative drop in the ocean compared to what I want to be doing…
Based on how January has gone so far, I reckon I’m really going to struggle to cram the miles in around family and work commitments for the rest of the year, still going to try though.Posted 4 years ago
I’m a bit behind too, but have ~130 miles to upload to Endo that I haven’t put in yet which should take me up to about 350 total for jan so far, going to be a low miles week this week as racing on Sunday so don’t want to overdo it.
My plan is just to keep on riding as normal and MTFU a bit when I start umming and ahhing about going out.Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
My plan is just to keep on riding as normal and MTFU a bit when I start umming and ahhing about going out.
Similar to me then, a hefty Dose of MTFU is in order, the first week of Jan’ was a total write off, the second week, barely an improvement,
I don’t want to tell myself I’ll catch up the miles come summer, because I know that’s basically cobblers, I’ll still have the same things getting in the way of riding, the real difference is made now when the weather is shite and the light is minimal, Beasting myself through that is going to be quite tough TBH.
I quite like having the table on Endomondo as a bit of a motivator, I don’t want to fall too far down it, and TBH its encouraging that I’ve done more than some others (as unpleasantly competitive as that sounds).
I think I’ll comfortably manage 200-250 miles by the end of January, but the 400 mile “minimum” I set myself just seems a bit wishful now TBH… Something to go for in Feb I suppose, it’s a Short month Which will perhaps motivate me to get out rather than put riding off…
Come December 31st I’d like to at least have 5000 miles done (about 100 a week avg)…
Get In, I just had a look spotted a 16 mile ride I did on the 5th that I’d not uploaded to Endomondo, that takes me over 200 miles, with a few more commutes and possibly some other stuff, I reckon I can realistically Gun for a minuimum of 300 miles before the end of Jan, that’s something I suppose…Posted 4 years ago
I think I’ve got a similar plan, I’m using this and the table as a motivator but I’m not going to beat myself up if I don’t make it. I was averaging 420 a month last year and as long as I don’t go too far backwards I’m not going to be grumpy.
fun > miles 🙂

I was doing so well up until Thursday evening last week.
A little off cause a knee/muddy rock interface, 3 muddy miles back to car, A&E for 4 stitches no antibiotics but nothing broken. Leg swollen up on Saturday night rushed to hospital where I still remain 4 nights later with the blood infection Cellulitis.
So, this month I won’t get past my 296.9 miles 😕Posted 4 years ago
I’m currently sat in 3rd place with 617 miles, with just tonight’s 35 mile training ride to come for this month’s total. Missed out badly on Sunday with the horrendous weather cancelling the club ride, losing me between 60 and 70 miles.
It’s still been a decent month for me though and I expect Feb to get off to a good start with decent mileage on both Sat and Sun. This should be built on the following weekend when I do the annual Batley Bash road run, which will be the year’s first ton (110-ish miles door to door).
I expect Zangolin’s ‘little and often’ approach to see him sail past the 1000 mile mark for Jan this week – top stuff fella, well done!Posted 4 years ago
