500 Mile a month.
All road apart from about 10 on the MTB so far in Jan. Not really fair to compare my mileage on the road to someone who is mainly off-road. Had to cut down a little last week as we had a big school inspection – otherwise I’d be over a 1000 by now.
Weather has been a bit grim as well – winter bike with full mudguards helps – especially with the amount of mud on the roads of the Shire atm.Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
Currently 16th, on 273 miles was 15th this morning, but some bugger went and did a few more miles…
I will top 300 miles by the end of the week but probably not much more than ~330, shame but I’m consoling my self with the knowledge I started back on the bike late after christmas…
It’s got me looking for more creative Opportunities to clock miles now, So I’m hoping Feb will be better. “Base miles” ~90 miles a week between commutes and a Tuesday night round the local velodrome are established and can be extended if weather/light/time allow, then it’s down to getting extra night rides and weekend riding in to make up the rest. it is of course quite marginal; a couple of days off for whatever reason and I’m going to be down on my mileage…
Still worth striving for the 6000 mile goal by the end of the year…Posted 4 years agosimmySubscriber
I’ve not signed up for the Endo but I’ve managed 164 miles this month, mainly on the MTB, think I’ve only had the Road Bike out a couple of times.
I aim to up that in Feb. Being busy at work, mate being off the bike with a bad back and a can’t be arsed attitude have kept my mileage down.
Still better than this time last year though.Posted 4 years agobigshepSubscriber
So I came in tenth with 355miles.Posted 4 years ago
Started late and had a week off due to back pain.
Feeling good for it though and hoping to get to 500 in Feb and make up the shortfall in a couple of months.
Well done to everyone so far and I agree with Ton, you can’t do 1000miles a month a have a full time job. 😯
Just good time management + keep chipping away at the mileage is the answer. Lucky I can get my weekday rides in on the way to and from work – getting a couple of hours in a day is easy plus stick a few 3 or 4 hour rides in at the weekend – job done. I am a teacher so I do get the school holidays to stack a few extra miles in :D. Had a full on school inspection the other week – so mileage was down a little for Jan – usually manage 250 or so a week on the road.Posted 4 years agooldgitMember
465 which is a bit of a surprise. We had three icy Sundays that shortened the usual club run. And cross didn’t help, all day Sunday to travel/race/travel and cover about 8 miles on the bike.Posted 4 years ago
Bonus miles came from a midweek night road ride, and a Saturday mixed on/off road ride.
I don’t commute, so no miles there. And I can’t count Turbo time.
It was also my first ever ever month with a computer/GPS.crazy-legsSubscriber
I *just* sneaked in over 500 but only by 2 miles!
All but one ride was either commuting on the roadie SS or track cycling at Manchester Velodrome. Not ridden a geared bike at all this year! The non-commute ride was a 45 mile spin in the Cheshire lanes.
Got wet on almost all the commutes including one horrendous ride how in sleet and slush. SO cold and wet.
Well done everyone who made it, the weather has been dreadful all month. There’s no way I’d have come close to the total were it not for the fact that the track is on my doorstep!Posted 4 years ago

Brack – you can export the rides from Strava as GPX, then import to Emdomondo. I think you’d have to do 1 at once though, don’t know if you can bulk export from Strava
What Brack says – Not been able to find a way to bulk import either – into Endomondo. The single import seems to take forever esp with long rides.Posted 4 years ago
Use Garmin Connect then import to Strava + Endomndo now. Didn’t bother importing into Endomondo for 6 months last year – so still have about 5000 miles worth of rides to import, to bring Enomondo up to date.amediasSubscriber
Yes – but you miss out on all the gps data, hr, altitude etc by manual activity
I use Strava too
Where it has all that stuff for me, I’m only putting things into Endomondo to participate in this challenge with you guys, which means all I need in there is the times and distances and it’s a lot quicker than downloading and importing the GPX’s cos I’m only using the Strava App on my phone until I can save up for a proper GPS.Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
Only 329 miles for January, and then nothing ridden over the weekend, currently showing 15th on the table but that will slip once a few people commute home tonight.
Planning to do ~50 mils tomorrow between commutes and a night ride…
I think 400 miles through Feb is realistic, 500 is achievable and the ~670 to get me back “on target” is probably a serious push TBH, but not completely unachievable, TBH it’s all about consistency, and taking the opportunities to get out for a ride whenever I can…
The Best thing about the challenge is its got me using the Endomondo site, I’ve had an Endomondo accounts for ages but just never used it, pulling *.gpx files off Strava and uploading them to Endomondo has been pretty smooth and I really quite like the way the Endomondo site works and presents your data.Posted 4 years agodirtygirlonabikeMember
778miles for me from 1 – 31 January, mostly on the road but includes intervals on the turbo/rollers. Was surprised by this as i train to hours not miles so have never paid much attention before but a quick flick through training peaks indicates this is normal mileage for me. More about consistent training than any epic rides though, longest ride was 5.5hours.Posted 4 years ago
