    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...

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

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

    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.

    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

    146.73 + 11.2 + 5.3 = 163.23

    About 2/3rds of that is trail, the balance is road.

    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.

    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
    next time

    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.

    1129.89 + 46.9 = 1176.79
