I think a good challenge for 2009 is the B52W - bike 52 weeks a year. One must do at least one 30 mins. ride every week outside. Now, for some of us, the challenge is the winter (I put on studded tires today), while others may find the high summer temperatures stressful.

This will be my cahllenge for 2009.

I'm afraid I dropped the ball at 6, although there's a chance I'll get home and knock out 10k after work. Still trying to judge whether my legs will be in better shape for the fast club ride in the morning if I do an easy spin or not.

Folks:
Many years ago, while serving in the military, I decided that I was going to run for 365 straight days. I began my journey in September. In February I had to travel from Peru to Pennsylvania where it had snowed several inches. I ran for 3 days in the cold and snow. Was it difficult....you bet. But after finishing each of those difficult runs, my motivation soared. To me losing weight is similar to this challenge. I can choose to take the easy road or I can choose to overcome all obstacles. I choose the latter. Hang tough!!

I concur with Wongerchi I may have just a few days left before the temps really take a nose dive and we start having ice and snow ... and since I have 2 raod bikes I will not ride either of them after thay lay salt on the roads.

Sorry ..... this does sound like a neat challenge.

Great challenge mate, but you may want to consider folk up here in the frozen North who don't really want to ride when it's -10C and snowing outside but will happily ride inside.... Something to think about perhaps. Saying that I will be riding tomorrow which should be fun as there's going to be 10-15cm of snow on the ground.

Good luck with the challenge though, I'm sitting out as I know my consecutive days streak starts and ends with "1".

Your time will come. My daughter is 16 and I have lots more time to ride now. I have a lot of admiration for people who fit in exercise with young children at home - it is really hard! Those days fly by though - faster than we like!

Hello Bill,

I know what you mean. I dream about riding my road bike as it is hanging in my garage. I look at it every day. I have three kids I stay at home with and so the only riding I do outside is on my pink beach cruiser with my son who is 5. I'm stuck in the gym on a spin bike for now. This season will not last forever. I plan to ride 120 in May of 09 so I'll be back on my bike soon.

I really think this is a good goal as it can be so hard to ride in the cold, but if you can ride in that kind of weather you can ride anytime. I love hearing the stories of the pro's training all year round.

Anyway, I rambled a bit, but I wish I was joining you in the goal.

Ditto. One down, 64 to go. Windy as h*** out there today and cold (cold for here, anyway!). Had to break out the gloves.

Hello,

I can't do it because of the kids, but my Dad rides everyday rain or shine :) If he was on-line I'd have him join.

Sports Fans:
Let's finish off 2008 with a "BANG". How many days can you go riding without a break? A couple of provisos: 1)Distance must be at least 6.2 miles (10 kilometers) 2)Distance must be covered without a break (other than rest room, replenishing liquids, or fixing a flat. Counting today, you can accumulate up to 65 days. Go get 'em.
