But I have noticed my average speed has dropped and I am trying to get it up to 25KMh which is hard given I am basically a commuter. When I did do a recreational ride I managed to average 28KMh over 100 KMs so I can go faster, commuting does make it hard.

Also missed out on my ride yesterday as home with a really crap cold, this challenge is so competitive missing one day puts you on the back foot very quickly.

I am lucky to hit 20km/h. Could be that my bike really isn't designed for fast commuting.

Hmm, that does look like a fuel tank on your bike though.

I'm sure it is - it contains a banana, red frogs, dried fruit, and some cashews. At least that's what it would have if it was on my bike - yum. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Not fast, no style, but still get there.

Sorry about that. I'm going OS again next week, so you should be able to snatch it back.

I have backed it off a bit the last month so you only need to average around 600kms/week

Last week was below par due to having a cold for 3 weeks I couldn't shake - finally after having to slow down and only do required kms it has reduced last weeks kms by about 40km.

Next week I will most likely have to travel so it could dent the kms even more - still I did get to 5th for at least a short time.

I did a ride with the guys from work yesterday that was 30kms. I rode 33kms to get there and 39kms to get home.

The whole ride was recorded in one go. How do I log my 2 commutes to get there and back :D :D

I would suggest that unless you went to work in between, that it's not a commute. sorry

I know how you feel.... I would have a 20km ride to get to the start of a group ride that was maybe 30km and then head home sometimes another 50km.... thats classed as a ride but those who done the group ride on there way to work claim it as a commute.... and all because they have a job....

If it makes you feel any better, I took the day off yesterday, so all I could manage was a ride to the shops - and it wasn't even a coffee shop :D

I decided to smash out some km's on the way home today but somehow when I uploaded to Endomondo I lost most of the ride.... I did take a photo of my bike computer with the actual ride km showing... wondering how I manually adjust this as I dont want to go through another 30min of pain
