1. FAT BOY 2011 CHALLENGE:project 50,000 miles...

well it's a new year again.... Last year we busted the door down on the with over 1100 posts (up from 900 the year prior), over 19,000 page view (up from 15,000 the year prior) and killed the 40,000 mile goal we'd set by over 5,000 miles (over 45,000 miles), thats a ride around the globe and then almost another complete time around (1.8 to be exact)

once again you blew past the goal of 40k miles so this year we're going to bump it up again to 50,000

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..

last years thread can be found here
FAT BOY 2010 CHALLENGE:project 40,000 miles...

2. I'll lead it off with my trainer miles for the year so far, just to get it rolling.

22.50

3. if i understand correctly i got 27.5 in this weekend so the new total is ....

50 miles total

4. 50 + 50.4 = 100.4

New Year's Day Resolution Ride in Austin.

5. 100.4 +9.4 = 109.8 (2 errand runs yesterday)

6. 14 on New years day plus 20 trainer last night...

109.8 + 34 = 143.8

7. 143.8 + 23.8 = 167.6

8. 167.6 + 7 = 174.6

186.24

10. 186.24 + 8.6 = 194.84 Personel first grocery run ever while snowing with snow tires on!

11. 194.84 + 12.39 =207.23 More Colorado miles Done in Boulder Flat Irons

12. 5.5 in a little snow before my feet got too cold to continue

212.73

13. 12.6 single speed with my recently weight 317.8 fat ass dragging the whole way....

225,33

14. 225.33 + 10.8 = 236.13

15. 236.13+13.43=249.56

16. 249.56 + 11.8 = 261.36

17. 261.36 + 24.08 (and back on the road) = 285.44

18. 285.44 + 14.32 = 299.76 Shoulda gone for an even 15.

19. 299.76 + 6.4 = 306.16

20. 306.16 + 26.23 = 332.39

21. 332.39+18+ 350.39 come on only 49649.61 to go!!!!

22. 350.39 + 1.0 + 8.2 = 359.59 (Assuming a "=" sign in previous post,) Test ride up and down neighborhood hill to test new brakes, and minor servicing. My snows weren't good enough for the snow hidden ruts, burried ice, and 6" of snow. Fun, with no traffic, but too dangerous with over-confident drivers. Veggie and fruit run on the 12th.

23. 359.59 + 21.03 = 380.62

24. 380.62 + 7.71 = 388.33

25. 388.33 + 15.75 = 404.08

26. 404.08 + 8.34= 412.42 snow ride

27. 412.42 + 6 = 418.42 Main roads almost clear. Side streets a bit of a slalom even with studded snow tires. Fun not scary. Would be insane = broken something, on summer tires.

28. 418.42 + 23.27 = 441.69 70º weather, and I can ride again. Hard to beat.

29. 441.69 + 29.51 =471.2

30. Last year at this point 1324

So at 471 we are 36% of last year's mileage. Hmm. We have to do better. I need to get my lights fixed.

31. 471.2+20.11= 491.31

32. 491.31 + 12.2 = 503.51

33. been behind on posting... sorry about that.

503.51 + 97.58 = 601.09

34. 601.09+18.3= 619.39

35. 619.39 + 16 = 635.39

36. 635.39 + 13.50 + 648.89

37. assuming the last post meant = 648.89

648.89 + 17.43 = 666.32

38. The rain finally stopped and the sun came out.

666.32 + 16.5 = 682.82

Will hit up for more mileage tomorrow, Thurs and Friday.

39. 682.82 + 16.5 (too damn windy!) = 699.32

40. 699.32 + 6 = 705.32 rainy ride.

41. 705.32 + 51.54 = 756.86

Miles for the week so far.

42. 756.86 + 181.98 = 938.84

1/1 to 1/16

43. 938.84 + 11.73 = 950.57

44. 950.57 + 20.55 = 971.12
Cold and Breezy Sat Ride

45. 971.12+20.5= 991.62

46. 991.62 + 20.73 = 1012.35

47. 1012.35 + 37.28 = 1049.63

48. 1049.63+21= 1070.63

49. 1070.63 + 30.33 = 1100.96

Augh the Cedar Pollen....

50. 1100.96 + 16.26 = 1117.22

51. 1117.22 + 23.82 = 1141.04

52. 1141.04 + 3.6 = 1144.64

53. 1144.64 +7.4 = 1152.04

54. 1152.04 + 11.78 = 1163.82

55. 1163.82 + 25.74 (once again, have to weave to avoid hitting my avatar) = 1189.56

56. 1189.56 + 11.77 = 1201.33

57. 1201.33 + 13.77= 1215.1

58. 1215.1 + 2.68 = 1217.78

Cold but muddier than I thought. Lost my 29er Virginity on my new Giant Talon. Had to try her out.

59. 1217.78 + 7.3 night ride = 1225.08

60. 1255.08+ 4.5 short night ride=1229.58

61. 1229.58 + 11.75 = 1241.33

62. 1241.33 + 14 = 1255.33

63. 1255.33 + 25.56 = 1280.89

64. 1280.89 + 26.25 = 1307.09

65. 1307.09 + 46.75 = 1353.84

66. yesterday afternoon 1353.84+4.91=1358.75

67. 1358.75 + 16.25 = 1,375

68. 1,375+174.74 = 1549.74

gotta do more miles next month

69. 1549.74+ 36.8 = 1586.54

70. 1549.74+3.71=1590.25

71. 1590.25 + 11.78 = 1602.03

72. 1602.03 + 5.7 (forgot from Sat) = 1607.73

73. 1607.73 + 17 = 1624.73

74. 1624.73 + 11.82 = 1636.55

75. 1636.55 + 8.91 = 1645.46

76. 1645.46 + 21.77 = 1,667.23

77. 1667.46 + 11.77 = 1679.23

78. 1679.23 + 32.54 = 1711.77

79. 1711.77 + 16.28 = 1728.05

80. 1728.05 + 26.6 = 1754.65

81. 1754.65 + 62.57 (January total, mother nature didn't help) = 1817.22

Just found this thread and I like it!

82. 1817.22 + 20.73 = 1837.95

83. 1837.95 + 36.77 = 1874.72

84. 1874.72 + 20.56 = 1895.28

85. 1895.28 + 612.6 trainer miles = 2507.88 miles .

86. 2507.88 + 20 = 2527.88

We should have a multiplier for Mtn miles. Those were killer.

87. 2527.88 + 24.53 = 2552.41

.. and back to commuting tomorrow. w00t!

88. 2552.41 + 10.7 = 2563.11

89. 2563.22 + 42.36 = 2605.47

90. 2563.22 + 147 = 2710.22

91. 2710.22 + 25.89 = 2736.11

92. +8.15 = 2384.26

93. 2384.26 + 20 = 2404.26 Not sick (me) & weather was: 65+ F woohoo!

94. Shoot, should have been posting in this thread! Yesterday rode to work (8 round trip), last week rode to work 2 days (16), the grocery store one day (12 miles), and had one real ride (25 miles). Can't remember clearly back further than that.

2404.26 + 61 = 2465.26.

95. + 9.86 = 2475.12

96. 2475.12 + 11.79 = 2486.91

97. +13.63

Ughhh. Had thread thingy in hybrid instead of linear. Sry guys. The actual current total is 2953.33, if I was able to sort this out.

Also, we've had a couple people post at the same time and therefor miles got skipped.

98. 2953.33 + 20.54 = 2973.87

99. + 3.35 = 2977.22

100. 2977.22 + 54.52 (doubled up on the club-rides today) = 3031.74
