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:

202.2km/125.64 miles on a windy day down to Merritt Island (near Cape Canaveral). It was a struggle going south, but a nice tail wind coming home.

Second for January, 127.5 miles on the Silver Comet and just a bit of the Chief Ladiga Trails. Details at Fifty-Mile Challenge Post 44.

Didn't really need a 200k today. I just needed 200k more for the month, and I decided to do it all today as rain is forecast for tomorrow and I didn't want to get wet. That didn't turn out as planned!

That's dedication!! I'm sure petrol isn't cheap in Aussie either. And not a bad ride either, lots of climbing.

Got my February century in with 105.57 miles on a hot winter FL day. Some was a fast group ride, the rest was solo.

15/2 125.1 Avg. temp was 90F Max. GPS temp was 104F - nowhere near as hot as some days that I've ridden in the past. With almost 3 weeks off the bike leading up to this, I bit of more than I could chew, although I did almost spew and the cramping in my right gammy leg just kept on repeating over the last 30 miles regardless of fluid intake...

I have a 100L LPG tank which refused to fill for the duration of the trip from the 1st fuel stop. LPG was 73 to 75c per litre in Victoria and South Aust. When I got back to Perth (after 8000km of travelling) The gas filled correctly at 1st try....only thing is LPG in Perth was 91.5c/l (with a 4c discount)
