Thanks to chipg5 for keeping this challenge going over that last few years, and for prestonjb for creating it (let me know if I'm wrong about that).
So here are the rules from prestonjb's old threads:

Rules: Typically a century counts if it is any sum of 100 miles in a 24 hour period. If you do a long ride like a DOUBLE century or a 400k BREVET then you could count the ride as TWO centuries as long as each set of 100 miles are within 24 hour periods. If you do 95 miles in 24 hours and 105 miles in the next 24 hours then it is only ONE century, not two.

You can ride 50 miles in the morning and 50 miles in the evening and it will be a century as long as the 100 miles are all in the same 24 hours...


Post the month and century or centuries you rode and any other info you want to include.

OK, since we have added a few more people this year, I'm adding the link to access the spreadsheet directly on google. Its usually much easier to update without the BJ forum snapping you back to the top of the page all the time. See below:

February is in the books. 100.58 miles on a series of Hessen Radwegs, going down the Main to Mainz, then up the Rhine to Biebesheim. Then across through Pfungstadt, Darmstadt, Rodgau, Bieber, and Offenbach. That put's my consecutive streak at 98.

I am getting slower every year.

glad you guys are still on it!!

I did century #100 in August 2017, haven't managed to do another one since then... I'm still bike commuting every day but have been in a new relationship that's keeping me busy in a good way!

February was the 1st month that I have missed in 5 years.
I think March will be another missed month and probably also April....

Much better recently thanks, though still minimising the bike riding to avoid lower back flexion.
