Thanks to chipg5 for keeping this challenge going over that last few years, and for prestonjb for creating it (let me know if I'm wrong about that).
So here are the rules from prestonjb's old threads:

Rules: Typically a century counts if it is any sum of 100 miles in a 24 hour period. If you do a long ride like a DOUBLE century or a 400k BREVET then you could count the ride as TWO centuries as long as each set of 100 miles are within 24 hour periods. If you do 95 miles in 24 hours and 105 miles in the next 24 hours then it is only ONE century, not two.

You can ride 50 miles in the morning and 50 miles in the evening and it will be a century as long as the 100 miles are all in the same 24 hours...


Post the month and century or centuries you rode and any other info you want to include.

Previous Years:

2019 Century a Month Challenge

2018 Century a Month Challenge

2017 Century a Month Challenge


2020 Century A Month Challenge

January is done. I rode a 100.74 mile loop up the Hudson River from NYC to Haverstraw, NY, then headed west and again south eventually recrossing the George washington Bridge. The bikeway for the Tappan Zee Bridge is still not open.

Headed east out to the coast, wind picked up as expected, so into the strong wind for 20 miles, back home with a tail wind most of the way.

1/18
167.7km/104.2 miles
Went out to the coast again, to see a SpaceX launch, but it was cancelled. I had a cleat explode on me, so had to ride 80 miles without one. I had to put my sock over my shoe just to get some friction, kept slipping off otherwise.

That's a big bummer! Didn't you also have a bike shoe explode on you recently?

Here is the thing about that cleat issue that I find the most amazing. You still managed a fast, 16.5 mph average speed for the century. Way To Go!

So now I have to decide whether to stop - I may keep going for a bit until it gets too hot.
