Finally, the 10,000 is in sight... I'm at 9,500 so only 50 a day will do it!
For a while there it was looking out of reach,

I only cracked just over 8000km this year.

I did have a long stint of training indoors this year during winter. Which would have probably cost me maybe 1000kms. Still short tho.

After this morning's ride I'm now on 10,003.9 kms for the year.

:D :D :D :D
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

Secretly I had hoped that I might actually be eligible for entry into this club by the end of the year. Sadly though it looks like it wont happen and by my estimates I am going to fall short by 5-600km :(

Next year though I will be definitely signing up for the 10k club :D

Judging by your veloviewer sig you haven't got too far to go!

I have 903km remaining to hit 10k km; it's a tough ask but I am keen to have a crack over the break :?

Mate, take a page out of LDR's book and just do a couple of night rides. You'll make it. :D

I've still got to squeeze in 75k for my 13500. I think I'll just make it by Christmas day.

So much for great plans!
A slipping seat post clamp and an allergic reaction to something have set me back a couple of days.

Hi folks - please forgive me for being silent on this thread until just now, but i am compelled to post...i have just rolled home after an awesome mini tour down the the Grand Ridge Road in South Gipplsand (Vic) - logged the k's on the train heading home and to my great delight i had ridden enough distance to complete 10k for 2013.

This distance is a first for me (and perhaps my reason for not posting until now - i wasn't sure that i could make it!)... what a year - riding rain/hail/shine and what and a great way to (almost) finish 2013 immersed in cool temperate rainforest with a few of my great mates!

Bring on '14! Cheers and Merry Xmas!

A lot of my rides like today are slow, they're just as important as the high intensity ones.
Today I just followed a mates wheel then decided to smash it when he tired, so only a short effort.

Absolutely guttered that I will fall short by about 700ks. Have only 3 spare training days left in the year to ride 900ks and I'm sure I'm not going to do 3 300k rides lol. Stink-one.

I should get past 14,000km by year end. Happy with that, although I was looking good for 15,000km at one stage. Oh well, next year's target. :D

I have only just managed about 10,500km this year, way down from 12,000km last year.

Lots of working from home this year, so less commutes. Also been sick a few times, and with two young kids I have only done a small handful of weekend rides.

Hopefully I get more time in 2014. I am capable of doing a 200km ride without any ill effects the day after, so I was thinking that Audax suits me, since I prefer to ride solo at my own pace.

Cheers to you and Jules21 for making me appreciate the 9000ks I have done instead of focusing on the 900 I haven't lol. Saweet.

No worries Oracle - always time to realise a goal!

I cracked 13k this morning, after a fairly decent trek from Moorabbin to Sorrento and return with a few mates - they certainly challenged me! Was a good morning for cycling here.

Have a great Christmas all.

Finished the 10K this morning...now to keep going to 1: get the Festive 500 and 2: extra k's to cover the stuff done of the wind trainer and 3: I want another 1000k month

So far the weather is playing its part...heat and humidity aside, but better than the wet stuff!
