Sorry - That's not good enough. :idea: Let's see you pay penance and do some record distances over the next two days. You KNOW you wanna.

Update: 'Small relaxing ride' turned out to be 201.2 km over 7h 45m

Thinking about a 300k ride tomorrow which would only leave me about 150k's for Friday....not sure if I'm up for it or not, I'll see what happens when I wake up! :wink:

Come on Perry< we all know you want to be in a club by yourself. :lol:
Few in the 20,000 club but no one yet in the 30,000k club. :D :wink:

Done pretty darn good even if you don't make it. :shock: 8)

Managed to squeak over the line today thanks to a 134 km ride (uneventful apart from having to rescue a bobtail that had managed to get stuck in a fence :roll: ) I've finished for the year (kayaking tomorrow) but I'll be interested to see what the final postions are as there are still a few that are too close to call yet.

Congratulations to all the fit gits - I see the club total is over 1.2 million km now :shock: :D

If it's not rescuing MTB riders with flat tyres, it's bobtails stuck in fences, the Banded Rail is obviously a good Samaritan bird! :lol:

301 km today in 12h 59m (was much hotter than Perth at Coolup, Yarloop & Pinjarra and needed 1h 50m of stops for rehydration and recovery) So it looks like 30k should be in the bag as long as I wake up tomorrow in a fit state! :)

Completed my final ride for the year and ended up with 15,351k's :D
Good year as I managed to push my average trip speed up to 26kph (not road speed)
Only good enough for 11th this year but the Club totals a way up from last year, to give it some prespective, last year I came First with just over 19,000k's and THIS year it would have been only good enough for 6th. :shock: :lol:

Well done to all for a very good year. 8)
I'm off to Mildura now so I'd better log off and start packing :oops:

That's me done for the year! 16,605 km's which is a best ever year for me with a near 2,000 km improvement on last year. Currently 87th overall thanks, I believe, to the bad weather in the US! Looking forward to a sleep in tomorrow morning!

Well done to everyone in the ACF club. Awesome effort!

I am not looking forward to tomorrow when I login and see 0 km's logged for the year :(

Naah ......... Saving the gauntlet until 2011 and the 6K group. Finished the year with a pleasant easy dry ride along the Redcliffe foreshore with the sun rising over Moreton Bay 54k's rounding out to 5060k's for the year. Can't match your numbers Colin but I had to push an extra wheel!!! :D Did i mention the ride was DRY!!! 8)

Great watching all the super totals with CaveBear's efforts topping it out.

thats me done for the year, sorry to those around me in BJ as i hadnt logged any km's since the 17th of December, so had a few saved up since then and a few Prestons runs this week has seen me finish with 15438km. Way more than i expected :D :D .
Next year :?: NFI
I am not going to log Km's but just ride when i feel like it and not be pressuured into early morning extended commutes, i want to run twice each week this year also so less riding will give me more time to do this.
Have a happy and safe new year :D :D
