# Thread: FAT BOY 2013 CHALLENGE: project 80,000 miles

1. ## FATBOY 2013 CHALLENGE, 75,000 miles?

sorry I'm a slacker... I made a thread and merged the two as posts have already been made but my post is several down... you can see it at FAT BOY 2013 CHALLENGE: project 80,000 miles
[end note from moderator]

Whats it going to be? 65,000? 75,000?

Current Total Miles + your miles = NEW Total Miles

Copy and paste from last year;

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

2. I guess I go first? Road bike on the trainer last night. 10.1mi

3. 10.1 + 6.6 = 16.7

(PS. 85K for the miles)

4. 16.7 + 11.0 = 27.7 miles.

5. wouldn't be a challenge at 75000 need to up it to at least 80000
27.7+30=57.7

6. 250' FT, = rode to the air compressor and back.

7. You gotta convert that to miles! That's about 0.05 mi...

So its 57.7+0.05=57.75 mi

8. ## FAT BOY 2013 CHALLENGE: project 80,000 miles

sorry this is a little late starting off this year... so here is another blatant cut and paste from last years (which was a cut and paste from the year prior ;-)

yes i'm cutting/pasting from last years only to change the numbers that apply... so sue me

well it's a new year again.... Last year we busted the door down on the with over 900 posts (down from 1200 the year prior but still many more miles then the prior year), over 21,000 page view (up from 19,000 the year prior) and killed the 50,000 mile goal we'd set by over 5,000 miles (over 55,000 miles), thats more then 2 complete rides around the globe.

once again you blew past the goal of 65k miles so this year we're going to bump it up again to 80,000... it's A LOT of miles but if everyone posts up ALL of their rides i'm sure we can do it once again (and hey I even have a bike again so I can be part of it once again lol

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..

here is last years FAT BOY 2012 CHALLENGE: project 65,000 miles

69. First rides on new bike....

11.2 miles

Spring cant come soon enough...

70. based on the above we are at:

1618.2+11.2=1629.4 miles

71. 1629.4 + 22.4 = 1651.8 miles

I'm trying to get up to 60 a week on trails and 40 commuting. Weather prevents that today though.

72. 1651.8 + 8.7 = 1660.50 miles

(19.9 ytd)

73. 1660.50 + 35.40 = 1695.90

My January Total: 107.9

74. Not a bad month considering I was sick and didn't ride the first couple weeks

1695.9 + 105.2 = 1801.1

75. 125 Miles

The past month just started riding again by using Nokian Hakkapeliitta W240 studded tire, I commuted approximately 125 miles in snow and ice. New here so starting from 0 miles.

Hey Five,
Welcome and I think the Moderators want the mileage like this:

Current Total Miles + your miles = NEW Total Miles

Here's a link from last year's thread that kind of explains why, but in a nutshell there is a member that goes through somehow and keeps us honest, which has to be a lot of work.

Based on this

1801.1+125=1926.1

78. 1926.1+39.28=1965.38

79. 1965.38 + 501 = 2466.38

January miles - I had to go out late last night and get 20 in to hit 500.

80. 2466.38 + 808 = 3274.38

85. I think we went backwards after my post, we should be at 3552.81

86. First post of the year! 3552.81 + 6.7 = 3559.51

87. Update for the rest of my January miles, plus yesterday. I really need to get studded tires (or a fat bike).

3559.51 + 33.63 = 3593.14

88. 3593.14 + 12.50 = 3605.64

89. 3605.64 + 2 = 3607.64

90. 3605.64 + 81.3 = 3686.94

Miles for January.

91. 3686.94 + 2 = 3688.94

92. 3688.94 + 2 + 3 = 3693.94

(2 last sunday on a greenway pulling bike trailer with the kids, 3 today on some local singletrack)

This also reminds me I need to get a bike computer!

93. 3693.94 + 7.9 = 3,701.84

(27.8 ytd)

94. 3701.84 + 145.8 = 3847.64
