I checked. It's actually 181k. We've had a wet month so that means less climbing. I'm just holding onto 1.5%

Y'all a bunch of freaky mountain goats :lol:

Just passed 10k with a solo Sunny Coast to Brisvegas Imperial on Sat morn. 87k up so slowly winding in the elevation gap with training for Le Tap and Buderim9 taking focus.

108klm behind the 12kytd target but that is much better than the 480klm behind it was a month ago!

Five days off the bike with a cold sure makes the progress bar start to slip away.

Nice elevation. :)

I'm almost at 12.7k. Elevation isn't that much, about 93,500m. It did go up massively a few months back, but since that I've not been doing any big rides, just shorter fast rides.

Almost made 10K last year, so I thought it would be doable this year. Rolled past 10K today, should be able to get to around 11.5 before Christmas.

Wasn't too hard after all.

Well done indeed. Great to see nearly 1500 km ahead on your progress bar, makes it seem easy......

Clocked-up 11,000 over the weekend.
Aiming for a 12,000 year, same as last.
I haven't included trainer mileage which started a couple of weeks ago.
What's the consensus on indoor distance? An hour or two on the trainer seems harder than equivalent outdoor time.
Should I add it to the total?

My 1000 is significantly lower than the old 800 which is lower than all the 510s I’ve seen. It’s a pretty ill-defined metric in any case...

My progress bar should be green tomorrow. Just got back from 5days away and 524kms on my Surly ECR.

Clocked my second 1000km month too.

15,100 km forward and 113,000m upwards as of this morning so I've reached my distance goal for the year. Yay!
Strava isn't updating for me at the moment, got a few issues with the site since they did a big update a short while ago so my progress bar is lagging a few weeks behind.

Nice work - that's extremely good going.

Pretty hot this morning too. Later on it was like riding with a hair dryer going flat out! Pretty tough headwinds too. Where is that melting emoticon when you need it...

Òn your current daily run (that should be cycle) rate you are on track for about 20200. Christmas or holds can be a bugger.

Passed 11k on Sunday with 98k vert.

I have found myself in two fun but competing end of year Strava Wars with some cycling buddies. The first is a winner takes all max end of year distance (I am currently 35klm behind) and the 2nd is an elevation challenge which I need to make up 3-4K on another rider. This is proving to be difficult to juggle. L'Etap helped both :D.

Reached my 10k today. My elevation is well down on past years. That's likely to remain the case next year unless I move.
