This will be the thread for the metric challenge. Please post your goal.

This challenge is open to anyone....any time. The rules this year will be the same as for previous years. Those rules are below:

METRIC CENTURY CLUB RULES as continued from previous years: Note that the first three lines of the post are requested to be (M)iles (T)time and (E) Elevation. The E is optional.

1. Metric century is 100 Kilometers (62.137 miles) or longer.

2. Try to be done as a continuous ride with allowed breaks for food, rest, etc.to keep in the spirit of "doing a metric century." The "Metric Police" were fired years ago, so use your own guideline for the time frame to turn the pedals for 62.137 miles.

3. "One Metric Per Day". Credit for one metric regardless of the length of the ride.

4. Post as much as you want about the ride for those of us who enjoy reading where ya where, something about your metric just fer fun. Any other information such as max HR, elevation, etc. is definitely welcome.

5. Qualifying rides posted in other challenges may be posted here.

6. Have fun.

7. No Whining

7. And last but not least, a thank you to RussTaiTai for starting this motivational thread and thanks to SloJoe and tojesky for their hosting over many previous years.

If the table below is too hard to work with, try the link below:

Thinking this year to go for more miles and less climbing. Think the climbing might have been causing the ankle issues. Put me down for 24 please.

My 2nd Favorite Thread

40 is my Goal, I'm thinking this Chart is like the Team Challenge Chart where the rider can add his miles himself?

Was signed up for the first metric on the first, but backed off due to temperatures in the teens. I'm a weenie that way. Maybe next weekend. Sign me up for 15 this year.

Goal of 2.

If I make it I will have doubled my metric output from last year.

Let's change that from "If I make it" to "When I make it". And when I make it, I will update for a new goal.
