Thanks to chipg5 for keeping this challenge going over that last few years, and for prestonjb for creating it (let me know if I'm wrong about that).
So here are the rules from prestonjb's old threads:

Rules: Typically a century counts if it is any sum of 100 miles in a 24 hour period. If you do a long ride like a DOUBLE century or a 400k BREVET then you could count the ride as TWO centuries as long as each set of 100 miles are within 24 hour periods. If you do 95 miles in 24 hours and 105 miles in the next 24 hours then it is only ONE century, not two.

You can ride 50 miles in the morning and 50 miles in the evening and it will be a century as long as the 100 miles are all in the same 24 hours...


I updated the spreadsheet for 2017, so now all you have to do is post your miles, and he rest should fill in (hopefully).

Post the month and century or centuries you rode and any other info you want to include.

OK, since we have added a few more people this year, I'm adding the link to access the spreadsheet directly on google. Its usually much easier to update without the BJ forum snapping you back to the top of the page all the time. See below:

161.5km/100.3 miles mostly solo as I got dropped on the group ride (they were going short anyhow). Maybe too much yard work yesterday to keep up. A few light showers on the way home.

163km/101.3 miles on the Fuji Cross gravel bike, a bit heavier than my Mekk. Did 40 miles solo, got dropped a few times with the group, couldn't keep up as well with the heavier bike (well, that was my excuse for today).

251.2 miles/ 404.2 km
Avg. 16.3 mph
Elev. 5917 ft - a flat ride

PBP qualifier # 2 ridden with 2 great guys who are considerably younger than my old self!
This ride took 18:55 hrs owing to my blown tyre (tyre replacement 26 mins), hot weather and a rider with a moved FD who could only ride in small chainring for 50km before spending time rectifying it at coffee stop at 10PM

Just thought I'd point out that it's silly to ride a 400k brevet as 2 100+ mile rides in 2 separate 24hr periods seeing as the time limit for a 400km BRM is 27 hours....You'd have to start the ride at 12PM ride say 200km, sleep for a few hours before riding the next 200km or start at 3PM and ride through the night until maybe 9AM the next day.
