    More Miles Than Degrees Club

    Here's the rules:

    1) Air Temp 20F or below

    2) You must ride more miles than there are degrees (Farenheit), one way.


    I'll start, today was between 4F and 8F the entire way into work, 14.5 miles.

    I anticipate another this afternoon with a forecast of 12F for the ride home.

    Just keep spinning. Just keep running. Just keep paddling.
    Just keep moving forward.

    22 mile ride each way.

    So just about any morning I ride from November through mid-March.

    Depends on the day. 13 miles to work one way (well, at least 13 miles to the commuter rail station, but I can't count the miles on the train, right?).

    read KNOBBY MEATS or be sadly ignorant of the mediocrity that is allowed to exist in the interwebs

    -10F, 3.5 miles one way. Wee..... Do the degrees have to be absolute value?

    -10 3 miles today with a 6 degree 3 mile ride back.

    A week an a half ago it was -18 and -3 on the way back. Man...15 feels like Aruba!
    I am immune to your disdain.

    -24C (-12 F?). 16 km one way (10 miles). 50% of that off-road. Everyday of the year!

    I have biked from -25C to +40C. Temperatures excluding windchill, of course.

    Easy. Yesterday it was -12. 5 miles total.
    Today was 10 so I'll have to take the scenic route.

    mmm I pretty much have no chance, ever, of filling those criteria.

    43C today (100+F), and 11km each way (~7 miles?)
