I cycle 40 mins a day and skimble gives me a measly 8 points! I notice that people get more points for 10 minutes of stretching - which isn't nearly as much hard work as I'm doing daily!!

Anyone else think that skimble really undervalues cycle-miles?

Absolutely! Yesterday's 6 mile ride with over 1,000 feet of vertical climb netted me 6 points. Hello, Skimble, that doesn't make any sense!

I agree. I ride 10 miles almost everyday and skim blue barely gives any points.

Are you using the sports tracker? That gives very little in the way of points. If you use the Workout Trainer, you pretty much get 1 point per minute of working out...

I did notice the same with running. But if you create workouts at the workout trainer you'll get appropriate points.

Problem with that is that you have to be a pro member to create workouts:(

I think you can create 2 workouts without being a pro member. Otherwise you find a 45 min. Moderate booming att my created workouts. Our let me know what you need and I'll create it for you, David.
