500 Mile a month.
I’m up for it, I was trying to do 90 a week so this ups the anti a bit.
Q.I have seen the Edmundo challenge – is this better than Strava ?
I have been using Viewranger for off road rides and strava for on road rides ? I dont use the segments on Strava so am not bothered stopping it if Edmundo is better ?

I don’t normally have much time in the week due to commuting but most of this year I’ve been staying away from home in the week so get 2 or 3 evening rides in each week. Hoping to hit 12,000k for the year which I am on track for despite having to back off with a sore knee for a while.Posted 3 years ago
I have been lucky lads, holiday for the first two weeks of July then ” cough” working from home last week. Only downside was the roadie rear wheel buckled due to busted spoke 😆
Also alongside this I’ve been doing Raphas “rising” event on Strava! with my WhippetMate which helped focus the mind and legs.
Yorkshire’s a bumpy old place 😆
Been bloody amazeballs.
List? what list? Are you logging this somewhere ? All my stuffs on Garmin..Posted 3 years ago
I am used to knocking the miles out though.. What did it though was inviting my WhippetMate up North “for a bit of riding” 😆
He’s not called WhippetMate for nothing, he bang on focused rider (retired early so has all the time in the world to ride)
Two rideouts stick in my mind, one loop from Harrogate/Masham/Aysgarth/Grassington/Bolton Abbey/Ilkley/Harrogate in 32C and blistering sun had me eating innertubes whilst he’s prancing about worring about his fekin tan 🙄
The other one just wiggled the lanes from Harrogate up to Grimwith Res over to Grassington and back through lanes no wider than a cars width (perfect) and that had me blowing chunks whilst he’s complaining about tyre pressures and wondering whether to stop and inflate them, damn if I nearly didn’t ram the pump up his backside the git.
Not riding with him again 😆Posted 3 years agoGary_MMember
Yeh I’m still logging the miles, although not on endemondo, just through Garmin.
4173.1 ytd and 615.8 last month. I was on holiday for the first week of the month then other things got in the way but I had one big week, biggest of the year, with 302 miles.
I’m about 500 miles up on the same point last year so should manage 6000 for the year. Only January and July have been less then last year, 26 miles and 86 respectively – those bloody holiday do get in the way 🙂
Another 20 to add after the ride home today 🙂Posted 3 years agoMTB-IdleMember
Hey Ton, yeah I’m still doing this, I was in the top six last time I looked although after the heady early days of excitement I just bulk upload once a week now.
Had some great months over the summer with multiple round trips to Brighton (100 miler from where I live), week in Morzine for MTB and the Pyrenees with the road bike.
I’ve done around 5,000 miles for YTD
This time of year is when it starts to get hard again (ohh err missus) with the rapidly cooling weather, onset of the rain and dark morning and evening for commuting. But I’ve been there before and sure I can keep it up (ohh err again) until the year end.
Thanks for setting this up and keeping it going and well done yerself on getting back on the bike after your op. 8)Posted 3 years ago
anyone still on with this?
I have got 30 miles to do between now and the end of the year for 6000 miles,
was loving it to bits prior to going in hospital, but to be honest, I have bloody hated it since. November and December have been rotten.
roll on the new year, and no more bloody mile logging…… 😀Posted 3 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
Managed 500 miles in two months, currently around 4900 for the year so far, but tomorrow is my last commute, this weekend is tied up with daughters birthday parties and next week I’m off work with the kids and organising Christmas, so not a lot of riding going to be done….Posted 3 years ago
