10/31/2015 Added yearly summary from previous years.

01/03/2016

WE DID IT, MOST "FIFTIES" MILES RIDDEN IN THE LAST SIX YEARS.

Happy New Year All!!!!

A fifty plus ride is a ride that meets the following:
1. A ride of 50.0 miles or more in any one day or a combination of several rides in one day.
2. Only one fifty per day may be counted.
3. Rides of longer distances that qualify for other challenges may also be posted here.

Although not required, I'd also like to have:
4. Type of ride; Road (included paved bike trails,) Mountain, Rollers, Trainer, etc.
See post #2 for a sample post
Pictures would be nice as well!







Thanks to Markiansj and SloJoe who hosted this challenge before.This is year four for me.

Tojesky,
I am going to have to reflect on 2014 before I decide on my 2015 goal.

Given that for the last 2 years I did 34 fifty mile rides each year and S Kottmyer spanked me both years and my arthritic joints feel better when I ride almost every day which I can't do if I am busy doing 50's all the time, and that realistically I only have 7 months of riding where 50's are doable, put me down for 36 fifty milers in 2015 and maybe I can break through the 34 barrier.

Tojesky - Thanks for hosting and doing all the work required to keep this challenge going - it is appreciated.

Hey GWM, plan an extended stay down this way, when or if it warms up, and we'll do several together.

2014 has been a bust for me regarding 50+ milers. I'm going to reduce my goal back to 12 for 2015.

Thanks for doing all this Tojesky!
