I'll start.

My goal will be 10 days more than I ride this year. Figuring around 220 or so. We'll see.

Have at it folks.

I'm game. I'm on pace for around 250 days this year and I just added a horse to the stable in October more suited for weekend jaunts so I'm aiming at 270 in 2018.

I will give this challenge a try next year. I am not sure how many days is a good challenge for me but I think 225 will be a good over/under goal for the first year of participation.

Do indoor rides on the stationary bike in the gym count?

Yup...must ride 40 minutes at least or 6.2 mile equivalent. At a cadence of 80 to 85 I think 40 minutes does that but I'm not a math professional.

Iím in! Put me down for 250.

2017 has been a tough year for me. I missed a month of riding after I got hit by a car in late January. Then I missed another month while I traveled in Europe during May/June. Iíll barely squeak by with 250 in 2017 if Iím diligent about riding in December. So, in the interest of not pushing myself too hard, Iíll stick with 250 in 2018 and hope itís an easier year!
