I thought this was a great idea and worth trying here. I have shamelessly stolen the idea from Kidds stuff! at YACF who stole if from CC.

The challenge is open to anyone who feels up to completing a

**100 km ride by the 31st January 2012 and a minimum of one a month from then on**. Your first ride must be in January, no doubling up in the following month to catch up.

You must ride one metric century 100 km per month to successfully complete the challenge. Simply log every ride of 100 km or more and award yourself a point for each 100 km ridden. Audax rides (calendar or perm) are permitted however you can only count them as a 100 km ride (assuming it was at least 100 km of course) and only one Audax ride per month. Makes it fairer for the non-endurance riders.

The aim of challenge is to serve as a motivator. There is a competitive element whereby the person with the most points by the end of 2012 may receive a virtual pat on the back from other participants.

Register your interest by creating your own post and then post a new updated one as the year progress with the details of each new ride.

The rules are:

1. At least one metric century each month.

2. Each metric century is worth 1 point.

3. Double centuries (non Audax) are worth two points and so on.

4. For very long continuous rides, use the start date to log the ride.

5. 50 km on Saturday and 50 km on Sunday is not a continuous ride!

6. Only one Audax per month to count and it can only count for one point

7. GPSr and/or logging of rides using GPSr is NOT a requirement to enter.

Your post might look something like this:

8 Jan, WARTY 1 Point, 103.5KM, Total Points: 1, Total Distance: 103.5KM

15 Jan, Epiphany Audax 1 Point, 107KM, Total Points: 2, Total Distance: 210.5KM

5 Feb, Plodders CC RT 1 Point 129.5KM Total Points: 3, Total Distance: 340KM

It will be easier and more up to date to copy your previous post with your latest ride and re-post as there is a time limit on editing.

Have Fun
