I noticed yesterday you back on the front page. Good job.

I am slowly crawling back up there. In to 19th now, and only about 180kms off.

Thanks Mugglechops - I am going to get some kms back soon without extra effort. My two girls are about to finish netball and i get back another 14km per week getting home.

My 11yo may also be lookinng to join a swimming club - we may ride there together as well. :D Do I get double kms if I am dragging a lazy passenger on a trailer bike? :wink:
Not fast, no style, but still get there.

Maybe an extra 200metres per 1km :D

I am still in 17th so will mount an attack on the front page by the end of next week.

Lethoso, I just checked the ladder and see that you logged 345 kms on Wed. Are you sure you didn't miss a decimal place?

I started in a new building today, which is now 18.85kms each way, or an extra 5kms per day roughly.

No more public holidays in Qld for this year either. I might take a week off work at the start of Oct but other than that I hope I'm sorted for racking up the kms to finish the year strongly in this comp.

Well done mate - I might bump you off the front page when I log my rides tonight but you will get me.

I only have enough time to commit to a max. of 120km / week. It is only a matter of time. Keep it up!

I only did 122kms this week myself. Next week will be a short week too as I will only be riding 1 day.

It may take a few weeks to get back there, but at least I will have a few hours back on the front page today:(

I won't get anywhere near you, but I've sneaked onto the front page- not bad considering it's missing my first 1000kms or so for the year...

You can enter rides manually. I only joined at the end of Jan and manually entered a month's worth of rides. Dumping in a 1000 k's at this stage might get some attention from the stewards, but if you did them, and its consistent with what you've been riding since, then you should put them in.

Nah, will pass this year. endomondo is automatic, that's what i like about it. i still do bikejournal manually (and a spreadsheet with more details on google docs)

I think I am doomed to be on the 2nd page for the rest of this challenge.

3 weeks of no commuting will kill me.

Someone at work just pointed this out to me, Endomondo Pro app is $0.10 (yes, 10 cents) for a limited time. I think just today, but not sure what timezone it is using:

Well Ladies and Gents, with The Better Half booked in tonight to have our baby induced that's my commuting finished for the year.

It's been a blast getting back into a job where I could ride to work but with an expanding family and appetities to match I must move up in the world and unfortunately that means sacrificing my commuting......

So with three weeks to go until the end, there's only 200km left to claim 8th spot.

Who wants it??? :P

I am out - it is a bit unfair given the distance of my commute, and that I am a 5 day a week commuter.

Just going to track my K's in Bike Journal. But it has been fun - Never realised how many k's I do until I actually started logging my rides.
