2016 ACF Commuting Challenge (AT) Endomondo

A commute is where you start at one destination and end at another for a purpose other than training. e.g. to work, to the shops, to your mistresses'/paramour's house.

same rules as last time. I'll make the challenge private in a few weeks. I've restricted entry to Au at the moment but I'll remove that restriction once I make it invite only

Thanks for doing this Jason - I'm in. My Kms will be down 300 on last years effort but hopefully next year I'll be able to join the log jam that is 8th to 11th in this years version.

I'll be aiming for 7500 kms in 2016.

Westy, I'll vacate my spot in the comp to help ease that log jam.

It's been a fun three years, but due to a likely amount of away time from home depot next year, I'm going to sit this out. It will also save me continuing to get mad at Endomondo which is becoming slightly irritating lately.

Best of luck to the 2016 Challengers.

Yeah I do that too, but still requires a visit to the site to edit your ride from sport to transport because they won't allow your 'favourite sport' to be the default ride type. Real pain when you leave it even for just a week (I know, first world problems right?) - then they go and change to some new fangled interface.

I'll join, but my glory will last for about 2 weeks of January until I depart for Dubai. I thinks it's highly unlikely I'll be commuting by bike over there, but you never know, if I manage to pick the right spot to live...

Thanks Jason, nice work :)

If someone would be kind enough to remind me at an appropriate time I'll sticky it immediately.

Robinho - let me know if it happens and I'll remove the au requirement. Will have to for TW anyway unless he is back in oz and with his lack of posting he may be in his way

I'll have another go. Been a good year for me in 2015, doubt I can get many more KMs than this year, possibly a little less next year given work locations but we'll see.

Hoping to hold on to 7th in 2015 which is a damned good result for me. Commuting will end on Thursday for me and I should end up with about 8,350KMs commuting and about 8,500KMs in total.

Good luck everyone.

PS, as the token ex primary school teacher here I really should correct the grammar in this challenge, currently it reads as follows:
A commute is where you start at one destination and end at another for a purpose other than training. e.g. to work, to the shops, to your mistresses house.

Mistresses should be Mistresses' if it is plural (and then you would need houses) and if singular it should be mistress' as it is a possessive noun. For the sake of balance we should also include the male equivalent but there doesn't seem to be one, paramour possibly?

From memory, mistress' and mistress's are both ok but the latter is more current. I could be wrong as I was distracted by starting at a destination ;-).

Cool, glad I'm not a teacher any more though ;) but grammar does seem to be an occupational hazard now.

Thanks Mate it has been fun this year I should finish 12th unless Bruce can find about 150km between here and the 31st. One more solid ride home for me and a couple to the shops and I'll be on the 2 week annual recovery and time with the family.

Don't sit out OX it's been great to have you to chase - the manual uploads work OK and it takes about 30 seconds. I'll be happy to be your rabbit again.

Thanks all for the fun this year - I wish you all a merry Christmas and a Happy New year. Enjoy your time with family and friends.

See you all in the new year.

Thanks for sorting that for us again Jason, this challenge keeps me going through the trials of commuting year round. I am in. Looking for a 3rd top 3 finish in 2016.
A quick rule clarification please. I am off to the TDU in a few weeks, the rough plan is to ride out to a viewing spot each day and a circuitous ride back taking in the race roads. This will add up to fair amount of Ks by the end of the week. My estimation is that it fits the rules for a legitimate ride, but I am not sure it feels right. I think I will be having too much of a good time for it to be labelled as a commute. What is the go? I am happy to not count them.

Cheers, and merry Christmas.
Mick

That would be great, although I am not sure that I will be able to keep up, from your commuting stats you have some pretty impressive climbing abilities. I am more of a descender.
I will pm you my mobile number and let you know our ride plans, I think the agenda includes a fair bit of Belgian beer but I do not know the finer details yet.
