- 500 Mile a month.
It’s tough in this weather but if you have the right kit and MTFU then you can get out there and ride. Rule #9 etcetera
Mainly doing my distance on my commute to work. It’s all going well to date even in this stormy weather. But have managed to get out a number of times on my MTB too. Surrey Hills are okay if you pick your spot.
January 600 miles (despite having cracked two ribs falling off my MTB on 2nd Jan)
February 280 miles to date and feeling good
I haven’t read the whole thread but is there a spreadsheet/strava club page/other site where you are all posting up your distance?Posted 4 years ago
2 days left this month, 42 miles needed to make 600 miles this month.
how you all doing?
Good going that Ton – are you feeling the benefit of the extra mileage yet?Posted 4 years ago
I just need 78 miles for nice round 1000 this month – should get a large chunk of that tomorrow night down at SQT on the Velodrome.seosamh77Subscriber
Haven’t been doing this but chucked myself into this challenge only been commuting since the start of the year. So only 125 miles total so far. But be interesting to see if I can get myself up this table over the year! No danger I’ll be getting anywhere close to 500 miles a month mind you! I’ll aim for a 200 mile month in march then up from there. Will do the challenge properly next year!
I’m last on page 3 I’ll make last on page 2 the challenge! 😆Posted 4 years agoStefMcDefSubscriber
Last couple of years, since being on Strava/Endomondo and logging my rides, it’s done roughly 2500 a year.
Would like to get that up to 3650 – ten miles a day. Can’t be that hard, can it?!
The trouble with working from home is, if you CBA, if it’s wet, windy and horrible, you don’t bother going out.
When I HAD to commute to work and the bike was the only way to get there, I would have clocked up the miles without thinking.
Going to have to go for it today and tomorrow to get the first two months of this year up and over a 100 mile a month average. 😕Posted 4 years agoHob NobMember
I should just about sneak 1000km YTD by the end of this month. Lower than I want, but considering the weather, and work situation currently, I’m quite pleased with that.
If things improve, and I can start working in a different office, I can ride in a few days a week, and get some decent evening and weekend riding back under my belt.
I have had a huge hissy fit about riding in howling winds, and sideways rain over the last few months, so chances to get out have been somewhat limited…Posted 4 years agoThe Sanity AssassinSubscriber
I’m currently in 2nd place on 1326 miles, but I’ve missed a lot of miles this month through the poor weather and a mid-ride mechanical that necessitated ringing home for a lift back. Despite that, I have managed a couple of centuries this month, so it’s not all doom and gloom.Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
330 for Jan, 282 for Feb so far and only one 16 mile commute home available to clock up anymore…
Looks like I’m barely averaging 300 miles a month which seems to have me wibbling about in the 12-14th range on the table…
Plus it now I’m having to spend most of the next month at a clients office, not sure what opportunities I’ll actually have for riding/commuting through March so things could slip Further.
I’m motivated but things are getting in the way a bit, I think I shall have to kick off March with a big Ride or two just to keep the enthusiasm up…Posted 4 years agoBuzzlightyearMember
Sitting in 8th at the moment, might have to start logging my weekend riding to try to catch up as it appears you all above me are pulling away. Only been logging my commutes so far.
Thanks for that bikehike site Ton, looks good that and will use it to try and find some new commute routes.Posted 4 years ago
Came flying out of the traps at the start of the month, stumbled last week and this week but back on the case now. Still now 500 miles though – went through 500km on Strava’s monthly challenge today on the way in, I’m on 325 miles. Another 21 on the way home, and about forty on Sunday, plus whatever I can get myself to do tomorrow…. Call it about 400 miles, with luck? It’s still there as a target, just one that’s out of reach in this calendar year! 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Hurrah! finally managed a 500+ in March (588 to be exact), starting to make up for my 400 mile Jan and woefully poor 200 mile Feb.
How’s everyone else doing?
I’m using this more of a (just about) achievable goal/target for me rather than beating myself up if I don’t put the miles in, but it’s a really good motivator and helping to push me out of the door on days where I might have bailed otherwise, and I can honestly say I’ve not regretted a single ride once I’ve actually been out for a few mins and got warm 🙂Posted 4 years ago
