We'll do it again for the 13th year.

This will be the thread for the metric challenge. Please post your goal.

This challenge is open to anyone....any time. The rules this year will be the same as for previous years. Those rules are posted in the next post.

METRIC CENTURY CLUB RULES as continued from previous years: Note that the first three lines of the post are requested to be (M)iles (T)time and (E) Elevation. The E is optional.

1. Metric century is 100 Kilometers (62.137 miles) or longer.

2. Try to be done as a continuous ride with allowed breaks for food, rest, etc.to keep in the spirit of "doing a metric century." The "Metric Police" were fired years ago, so use your own guideline for the time frame to turn the pedals for 62.137 miles.

3. "One Metric Per Day". Credit for one metric regardless of the length of the ride.

4. Post as much as you want about the ride for those of us who enjoy reading where ya where, something about your metric just fer fun. Any other information such as max HR, elevation, etc. is definitely welcome.

5. Qualifying rides posted in other challenges may be posted here.

6. Have fun.

7. No Whining

7. And last but not least, a thank you to RussTaiTai for starting this motivational thread and SloJoe for his hosting for the previous years.

I didn't make my goal for 2016 and 2017 won't be any better.

My goal for 2017 is 20, 5 less than 2016.

I'm going to have a two part goal. At first I will say 1. It'll represent that motivation carrot to get back out there again after I get clearance. When that first one is done, I will reevaluate and set a different goal for the rest of the year.

Somehow this thread and challenge looks vaguely familiar.

I'm in for 6. Didn't even come close in 2016 as it was a very laid back year for cycling longer distances. Changing that for 2017.

I'm really, really going to try to ride less and cross-train more next year, but put me down for 26.

If you ride a metric, can you post for metric and 50 miler threads with same ride?

If so, I'd like to jump in with 12 for 2017 if that's okay.

Yes, it is allowed to post qualifying rides both in the Fifties and Metric challenges.
