Good start for me for January. There's another 25km or so of running in there as well (for my long-term health as a crusty middle-aged man).

In total, racked up 31 hours of 'exercise'. So super-happy with averaging an hour a day... :-)

Pretty sure I spotted him yesterday too.

Going to be tough work. 1680km for the month, so a good start. :)

Yeah, you and your mate were flying along and it wasn't until you had gone past that I realised who it was. This nice cool change makes riding more enjoyable even with the wind.

Still can't work out the progress bar despite lots of searching - can someone help please?

Ditto. I'm not sure what to do to get the progress bar.

Hey Robert, Phil,

PM me your Strava id (profile page URL - for instance https://www.strava.com/athletes/179230) and your goal for the year. It’s slightly flaky as it’s just a job run on my laptop each night and uploaded to my wife’s site :-)

That's what happens when you are trying to get through Prospect before the gates close at 6:30pm. We made it by 2 minutes. :lol: After we saw you we ended up going even faster. Once we got to prospect it was "okay, we'll get through - now we can slow down a bit".

That night was actually a bit chilly in comparison with that stinking heat and humidity.

297km this weekend, 445km for the week and 1960km so far for the year.

The weather has mostly been good so I've been doing plenty of riding.

Let's try that again, without the extraneous line in the signature...


...yes, that's better.


Don't mind me everyone - I'm happy talking to myself here :)

In my experience, if you ride by yourself often enough it becomes second nature :lol:

I 'accidentally' added 10k's to my ride home tonight. I knew it wasn't a short cut but when I'd only made it half way by the time I should've been home I knew I was in strife. Thankfully SWMBO knows I'm a bit of an explorer on the bike and accepts these things happen :D

Anything to stay competitive in the endomondo commuter challenge...
I do my long rides in the morning. Being late for work is better than being late home (shorter work days are the bonus)

Seems like it. :D Hopefully I'll keep the run going, but I suspect winter might mess with things. Up to 2300km now.

It's working. :) Going at that rate, you might be revising your target upwards. 8)

I might. But I am planning a month or so off the bike on an overseas trip later this year, so I have to factor that in too.

I don't know about the others, but my weekday rides when I'm on my own are done pretty fast, because I get home late and want to get 90-100km done and dusted then get to sleep at a sensible time. I have everything ready to go.

4 rides per week, 440km last week.
