2017 Century Challenge and Metric Century Challeng...
Author Last Post
thanks for your efforts, I look forward to the first 100  1/28/17
 
To go along with the goal of "Ride the Year - 2017 miles in 2017", I would like to offer a "Century Challenge" and "Metric Century Challenge" for 2017 (an idea borrowed from LA Wheelman). The idea is to see how many centuries and/or metric centuries our RWBTC members can ride in 2017. If you do even one century per year we urge you to join in and add it to our totals. My personal goal is to do at least one century a month, so I am planning to lead at least one century ride each month this year to help encourage members to take some longer rides.

If you don’t have the time or the interest to ride full centuries, the Metric Century Challenge will allow members just doing some of the typical club rides to record a number of rides. I think this will also serve as an incentive to get on the bike and join us on more rides.

Basic guidelines are as follows:

- You must be an active RWBTC club member to participate.
- A century is any ride of 95 miles or more with doubles and brevets counting as one century. A metric century is a ride of at least 60 miles but less than 95 miles.
- Any ride of these distances counts including organized rides, club rides or rides on your own.
- To participate in either (or both) challenges email the Century Challenge Administrator (Jerry Green) at membership@rwbtc.org and you will receive a personalized Google Sheet where you can enter your ride totals by month. The data will automatically update the RWBTC Century or Metric Century spreadsheet. If you can not access/update a Google Sheet, you can email your number of qualifying rides at the end of each month.
- All reporting is on the honor system. Please record your centuries/metric centuries at least monthly. Reporting of centuries ridden more than 3 months prior is not allowed.
- I hope to create a live tally on the website and plan to give monthly updates in the newsletter.
