I just joined the conversation on the blog mentioning just that. Also asked for confirmation of whether I worked out the reason my stats are always a little short. Basically, it appears my first ride, on the morning of January 1 is excluded, presumably because that was still last year in the time zone the YTD calculations are made in (be that somewhere in the US or GMT)

That's a huge day. I don't think I'd be capable of completing it, so congrats to you all for doing so.

This topic has died a bit with the loss of the tracking device. Anyway I've just cracked 190,000 so should get over my target of 200k, may even nudge up towards 250k with a bit of focus. :D

150km seemed a bit easy so I've upped my goal to 182,500 (500m a day). Looks about right challengewise as I'm 2037m behind but have been slacking off lately. Maybe the 7 peaks challenge will help.

167k for me. I'm pretty happy with that, recently I spent around 8 weeks of not climbing.... I'm back into the swing of things and should see 200k without too much bother.

Just rolled over 310 000m elevation for 2013 so far. Had the last 6 months on bare bones mileage. Got a bit lazy. Will pick it up now the sun is shining more.

Good work gang! Top effort by everyone. :D

200k would be a stretch me thinks. If it's like this morning, no.
I'll definitely hit 180k

I've seen the ride, I'll pass. Think I'd prefer to do coot-tha repeats.
