Metric Century Challenge 2009-2010

by Dave Atkinson   November 2, 2009  

The road.cc metric century challenge is a yearly mile-eating competition. it runs from halloween to halloween. The competition is for:

  • Highest total score
  • Highest score in a single month
  • Longest single ride
  • Every rider who completes the full challenge - a metric century in every month of the year

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. There will be prizes, but they're not 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 Smile

The challenge is very basic. You must ride one metric century 100 km or 62.18 miles per month to succesfully complete the full challenge, but anyone can enter at any time of the year. You can may ride as many as you want and there will be a points system to award to the person who rides the most metric centuries. 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.

The RULES:

1. Anyone who completes a metric century (100km) is eligible to enter

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

3. Tie breaker will be total mileage.

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

5. For Brevet rides or anything else lasting longer than one continous day, the date the ride completed is the date posted.

6. If you don't complete a century in every month you are still eligible for the other prizes, so long as you complete a minimum of four scoring months.

6. Yes, just keep editing your original posts and delete any commentary. Your post would 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.

NOTE: please don't reply to anyone'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.

tim - only single rides over 100km count, it's not a cumulative thing. although stay tuned on that front...

Not too sure of the numbers, but: commute to work is 12km each way. Cycle 3-5 times a week. (longest route is 17km each way, shortest is 9km, but usual is 12km)

So, using 22 working days a month, cycling 15 of those:
Nov 09: 360km. 3 points.
Dec 09: 360km. 3 points.
Jan 10: 360km. 3 points.
Feb 10: 360km. 3 points.
Mar 10: 360km. 3 points. + 3 points rounding Nov-Mar
Apr 10: 360km. 3 points.
May 10: 300km. 3 points. (two weeks of paternity leave!)
Jun 10: 360km. 3 points.

(Typical ride: http://j.mp/cOUiUe)

27 points total. (Well, none as it turns out, which is a shame, but nice to add up the numbers and realise I am actually doing some exercise! Do I get double miles if I have the trailer?)

Blimey 3 months since last time I went out with the gang. Have done quite a few 70/80kms on the SS MTB in the meantime. Hopefully back in the swing now. Lets see if I get out to ride on Sunday eh?
