    Well we kicked arse on the 10,000 mile Fall Challenge :)thumbsup:), lets see if we can accomplish the same arse kicking for the Winter Challenge.

    From 21 December to 19 March lets shoot for 15,000 miles (road and/or trainer). Let's keep those legs spinning Two Spoke. That means everyone....;)

    Cycling. It's what we live for!

    I hope that's not unrealistic. Many northerners will have many days that will be virtually unrideable (at least outside). With less day light than our fall ride <shrug>. I'll try to do my part. ;)

    OK! I'll play this as well. Is it being tracked on Endomondo? They are changing their challenge site as of January 1.

    Count me in. Hopefully I get more outdoor miles than trainer miles. Working nights has it's advantage short days are the least of my worries.

    I'll be in. I've got two days left to cycle in 2013 (tomorrow and Dec 31st).

    I'll be in Vegas from early am 12/21 until late night 12/31.

    I needed 40 miles to meet my 2013 goal of 1,000 miles... Before I rode tonight anyway. Hopefully that's down to less than 30 now. Should be perfect for 90 minutes to 2 hours tomorrow night and another hour on the 31st before ringing I the new year hopefully.

    Didn't get a chance to ride yesterday but got in a good ride today.

    177 + 50 = 227

    As long as the spin bike can accurately record the distance you have ridden, I don't see why not.

    Sure. Indoors or out. Like TruElvis said, "as long as you can accurately record the distance".

    This challenge is all about warding off that "winter funk" and keeping the legs spinning until the sun comes back and the temps climb. At least for those of us who don't live in the sunny confines of Florida......:D

    Keep spinning...:thumbsup:
