1. ## FAT BOY 2010 CHALLENGE:project 40,000 miles...

well it's a new year and a new decade. Last year we busted the door down on the with over 900 posts and over 15,000 page views in the 2009 25,000 mile challenge by over 10k miles hitting a massive 35980.2 miles... thats going around the world almost 1 1/2 times... or going from Key West FL to Deadhorse, Alaska and back 3 times...

amazing work guys...

so it's a new year... time of resolutions and all that... we've got the fat boy challenge thread for personal challenges... last year you guys apparently laughed at my 25k miles and blew way past that... so...

i think we can do 40,000 miles this year... thats 3333.33 miles a month... thats 20 people averaging 166 miles a month... 83 miles for 40 people...

it's a little more then we pulled off last year... but being that I thought 25k was a bit pie in the sky I think we can do it

rules... whatever you ride, post it... if you commute to work, post it... if it's out on the trail, post it... if it's out on the road, post it... if you went around the block with your kids, post it... rollers or trainers, post it... even if it was on a stationary or spin machine... if you pedaled it, POST IT

if you want to post what type of miles they where go ahead... simply add the guys total from before you to what you rode and post the new total...

2. what are we so pose to put here.

3. your MILES you ride/log... if you ride 10 miles post

10 + whatever the total miles before you = new total

4. Ok thanks

5. I rode 6.2 miles today.

0 + 6.2 = 6.2 miles

6. 6.2 + 15 from today

21.2 to date

7. 5.9 miles today.

21.2+5.9=27.1 miles

8. Does New Year's Eve count? It was probably 2010 somewhere, right?

40k should be very feasible! Jump on the pedals!

9. I will start to post as soon as I get on my bike. Today it is so cold here so it won't be any with -16C.

10. 7.61+27.1=34.71

11. 7 + 34.71 = 41.71

12. 9+41.71=50.71

13. I dropped out on the last challenge after we hit the mark. All my riding for the next few months will be on my rollers in the basement. I guess it's better than noting at all. 52 miles even the past 2 days.

50.71 + 52 = 102.71

14. 102.71 + 5.0 miles in the snow = 107.71

15. 107.71 + 22.0 miles on the trainer = 129.71

16. 129.71 + 3.22 = 132.93

17. 132.93 + 3.31 on the stationary = 136.24

90 rpm kicked my butt.

18. 136.24+7.89 of singletrack downtime on an on call weekend = 144.13

19. 144.13 + 2.6 on the squeaky trainer = 146.73

20. 146.73 + 11.2 + 5.3 = 163.23

21. 163.23 + 25 on the rollers = 188.23

22. 188.23 + 7 = 195.23

23. 195.23 + 4 (trainer) = 199.23

24. 199.23 + 20.2 on some flat trails = 219.43

25. 219.43+ 6.54 on my first commute/ride of the year = 225.97

26. 225.97+7.66mi lunchride = 233.63

27. My lunch time ride, http://connect.garmin.com/activity/21699018
233.63+3.53=237.16

28. ## Lunch break ride

237.16 + 5.3 = 242.46

29. 242.46 + 9.8 = 252.26

30. 252.26 + 5.1 = 257.36

31. ## MTB ride

257.36 + 30= 287.36

32. 287.36+ 5.96 on my afternoon commute = 293.32

I'll try to post adding both commute rides

33. 293.32 + 10.5 = 303.82 trainer miles

34. 303.82+21.6(stationary bike)+27.86=353.28

35. 353.28 + 6.25 in the dirt = 359.53

36. 359.53+3.57=363.1

37. 363.1 + 8.61 + 5.34 = 377.05
The last ride, the coldest I have used my bike -19Celsisus the other only about -10 Celsius

38. 377.05 + 24 = 401.05

39. Oops, posted in the wrong place

40. 401.05 + 5.3 = 406.35

41. 406.35 + 6.2 = 412.55

42. 412.55 + 12.5 on commute rides = 425.05

43. 425.05 + 7.4 (on the squeaky trainer that I wore the squeak out of) = 432.45

44. 432.45 + 20.0 miles on the trainer = 452.45.

45. 452.45 + 7.33 = 459.78

46. 459.78 + 5.28 very cold road miles = 465.06

465.06+0.67=465.73

later a post adding both commutes

48. 465.73+18=483.73

i sure hate riding a trainer.

49. 483.73 + 14.2 on the trainer = 497.93

Only 2.07 more miles and we have 500 already! I'm starting to get used to the trainer, but I am not a big fan of it at all. I finally made it all the way through Valley of the Fire State Park in Las Vegas on the Spin DVD.

50. 497.93 + 12.79 on commute rides = 510.72

will post my commute rides on a weekly basis from now on

51. ok I'm in for this year. I guess I could total up my GPS rides from last year and add some more miles to last years chalange.

On to this year 2 miles around the hood after work.

510.72 + 2 = 512.72

52. 512.72+19.56 on the trail=532.28

53. 532.28 + 8.4 = 540.68

1.35% the way there with 1.64% of the days down! I'll be FIP tomorrow at 6am... anyone else?

54. 540.68 + 13.0 miles on the trainer = 553.68

55. 553.68 + 60 = 613.68

56. Four days off, lets see how many rides I can get in...

613.68 + 21.78 = 635.46

57. 635.46 + 6.2 = 641.66

58. 641.66+25.06=666.72
Weird that my mileage brings us to the number of the beast. I was going to shave off .72 miles to make it an even 666 but decided against it.

59. 666.72 + 6.25 = 672.97

60. 672.97 + 4.89 = 677.86

61. 677.86 + 23.0 boring trainer miles = 700.86

62. 700.86 + 25.23 two days of commute miles = 726.09

63. 726.09 + 8.2 = 734.29

64. 734.29 + 5.2 = 739.49

65. 739.49 + 19.1 = 758.59

66. 758.9+73=841.9

67. 841.9+10=851.9

68. 851.9 + 2.72 @ stationary bike on Thursday + 9.48 @ Santa Teresa Park (first time!) today = 864.10

69. 864.1 + 7 = 871.1

70. 871.1+16= 887.1

71. 887.1 + 8.5 = 895.6

72. 895.6 + 14.12 = 909.72

73. 909.72 + 7.9 = 917.62 good ride on a familiar route, fastest time yet

74. 917.62 + 2 = 919.62 rode the small loop by my place

75. 919.62 + 4.32 = 923.94

76. 923.94 + 12.23 = 936.17

77. 936.17+41.32=977.49

78. 997.49 + 3.51 then OTB and dished my front wheel = a lousy way to hit1001.001

79. 1001.001 + 5.93 = 1006.931

80. 1006.931 + 11 = 1017.931

81. 1017.931 + 75 = 1092.931

82. 1092.931+7.07 = 1100.00

83. 1100+13.10=1113.10

84. 1113.10 + 7.46 = 1120.56

85. 1120.56 + 9.33 = 1129.89

86. I forgot to check in until now. So, the total for me from 1/1 to 1/13... 46.9

1129.89 + 46.9 = 1176.79

87. 1176.79 + 13 miles on the trainer = 1189.79.

88. 1189.79+40.43=1230.22

89. 1230.22+3.76+4.57=1238.55

90. 1238.55 + 9.35 = 1247.9

91. 1247.9 + 5.1 = 1253

92. ## Night ride at Sokol

1253 + 6.6 = 1259.6

93. 1259.6 + 4.3 = 1263.9

94. 1263.9 + 5.46 = 1269.36

95. 1269.36 + 27 on the trainer = 1296.36

96. 1296.36 + 12.3 at Golds this week +7.65 cold miles on the trail today = 1316.31

97. 1316.31 + 7.86 = 1324.17

98. ## Just beat the rain

1324.17 + 6.85 = 1331.02

99. 1331.02 + 5.18 = 1336.2

100. 1336.2 + 13 = 1349.2
