I am interested in doing this challenge. How long is it for?
19 May
Hey Carmen, the challenge is to bike 20 miles in a week. I'm doing it every week. You can do it every week, once a month, or even once a year. Whatever you're comfortable with.

Sounds awesome...but does an elliptical count?

4.2 miles today. Feels so nice outside! It feels like I haven't seen the sun in forever.

19 May
Tuesday - 15.4 miles. So many roads! Crossed a lot of creeks.
19 May
You must be riding a mountain bike.
19 May
Yepp. I have a hardtail. It's good for the city roads and going off road.
20 May
Sounds like fun. I have a hardtail also. I also have a cyclo cross road bike for gravel roads and pavement.
21 May
I have a folding road bike, an electric bicycle equipped with storage for shopping grocery ( no car) and my fabulous hooligan for bombing in the city. I would like to buy a 29" wheel hardtail to spare my knees and my back in this potholes city and do some trails outside Bangkok.

Again 11.5 km ride on my cannondale hooligan today, and as usual on this amazing city bomber with a huge smile on my face however my knees hurts like hell on each potholes, and there are more potholes than road in Bangkok lol. Anyway Walking is worse than biking...
20 May
Smiling thru the pain. You gotta love it.
21 May
It seems too, I keep pushing apparently too far for him (not enough for me...) and get sport injury all the time....and then I don't heal properly and get pain to remember it for the rest of my life... Seriously I have a relationship issue with my own body. I keep pushing it trying to get fit&healthy and he keeps punishing me as he was very old and not capable of handling some sport....I always hated my fat body and I think that he punished me for those years of bad treatments but it is now one year I am...
21 May
I use Garmin edge GPS & Garmin connect for my bicycle rides, runkeeper for runing and try to synchro them then to other services like strada with more or less success. So yes I have strada but some runs are missing:-)
21 May
Oh ok. Cool!
21 May
Hypnotic Gnome is my name on strada

Alright, for 24 - 29 of May:
  37.8 miles (60.8 km).

31 May
Good job everybody. I'm good with keeping it at 20 miles. I have 2 other personal 2015 personal challanges going. One is 5 million steps this year. Which requires aprox 15000 total steps a day. Which is 7.5 miles. I get half from work or normal everyday movement. The other half is treadmill or outside. The other one is to exersice of some sort everyday for 2015 for at least 30 mins. So far so good on both. I added the bike even though i usually ride about 40 to 50 miles snyways. Work is real slow right now so...
