So who is on board for the new year? I have started the table with last year's active crew.

The 2012 Challenge was at bikejournal.com/thread.asp?ThreadID={2BCF5F3D-EC9F-4A9E-AB18-7A8D2FB06BB1}

I'm back in and have to keep my goal at 8 since I'm supposed to take four or five overseas trips this year that could kill any given month.

I'm in, my goal is 12, but no guarantees, I try to get in lots of riding, but do occasionally have other priorities as well.

me too I am in, but I may have to knock off the last 0 for a while, I promised Vicki I would not ride on icy roads, or bad weather. (she is laid up with a badly injured leg and can't come after me if I get in trouble, SO my riding will wait

Sure, I'm back in. Put me down for 8. I might get only get 7. I might get 9. It won't be this month, nor February, that's almost a given. Just can't be done *safely* with either wind chills below zero (likely next weekend) or narrowed roads due to poor plowing and 8 gazillion pounds of salt and cinders all over the road after a mere flurry. (I gotta find a way to move farther south!)

Got you updated on the chart, LC! I feel your pain about winter riding - see my morning post in the Bike Commute thread. Right now I am pretty much on track for a 1000 km month if I can maintain the pace of the first third of the month (yeah - right! ).

Conditions here are generally a lot better than where you live, but I still dislike getting wet in the cold and dealing with all the extra bike maintenance. What southern location looks good to you?

Got my 1000 in today, a foggy start in the 40's but was in the 70's by the time I was done. That's why I live in FL - but I'll pay for it in July and August...
