The road.cc metric century challenge is a yearly mile-eating competition. it runs for the calendar year.

The challenge is very basic. You must ride one metric century (100 km, 62.18 miles) in every month to succesfully complete the full challenge. You can ride as many centuries as you want. Only single continuous rides of at least 100km qualify, not a daily or weekly total of several shorter rides that exceed 100km. Tea stops are allowed, nay encouraged.

There will be a prize of a pair of road.cc socks for every rider who completes the full challenge - a metric century in every month of the year. The overall winner is the rider who accrues the most points (or the greatest distance in the event of a tie), and they win a road.cc jersey.

Anyone can join at any time: Just post if you complete a scoring ride, and then edit that same post from then on, updating for each qualifying ride. The prizes aren't worth the pain of dragging yourself out of bed on a cold Sunday in February to ride 70 miles in the rain - it's about the challenge, not the reward.

The rules

1. Anyone who completes a single ride of a metric century (100km) is eligible to enter. Brevet rides with a time limit count as a single ride.

2. Each metric century is worth one point. Double metrics are worth two points, and so on.

3. Keep only one post per participant and edit your post with each new ride. All comment posts will be deleted.

How to keep your score

Just keep editing your original posts and delete any commentary. Your post should look something like this.

8 Jan 1 Point 63.88M/102.73KM Total Points 1 Total KM 102.73
16 Jan 1 Point 65.27M/104.97KM Total Points 2 Total KM 207.70
12 Feb 1 Point 64.90M/104.37KM Total Points 3 Total KM 312.07

Or you can put your totals at the bottom of the post if you prefer

NOTE: please don't reply to anyone else's score post. if you do, it'll be locked and they won't be able to edit it. All comment posts will be deleted. There is a chat forum topic for, erm, chat.

To post your first scoring ride, click on 'Post Reply' below this post. DON'T post until you've completed a scoring ride. We don't require any proof of your rides; this is a gentleman's contest.

How about 100km on rollers for arctic participants, when all roads are snow covered? Will it count?
