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.

62.76 Miles
3:36:33 Time
17.4 Ave
860 Elevation

Was so excited on our stop at about 41 miles, I was at 19.1mph average. Then on the ride home the forecasted winds hit and it got tough and I watched my ave mph diminishing before my eyes.

My riding has also diminished while we sale house (close 10/5), stay at a VRBO 10/5-11/15 and get into new house no later than 11/16. We are downsizing, yes!
