The 2017 Imperial Century A Month Challenge


Tattooed Beat Messiah
Welcome to the 10th year of the Cycle Chat Imperial Century A Month Challenge.

This thread is for the logging of your qualifying ride each month only.
Please don't post anything else in this thread apart from your qualifying rides.

It should eventually look like this one:
2014 Century Register

There is a Century A Month Chat thread here, for comments, planning rides, bowing out excuses etc which will keep the main Register as neat and tidy as possible.

The challenge is to ride 1 x 100+ mile ride per month during the calendar year (January to December) to complete the challenge. Only log the first qualifying ride of each month.

Please include the following info....Date of ride, distance of ride and a route description of your ride. (please don't just post a link to your ride, Strava, RidewithGPs etc).

This as an example

04/04/15 (C143) Ashford and back.

Ashford and back Via Otford, Pilgrim's Way, Kemsing, Plaxtol, Hadlow. Yalding, Marden, Staplehurst, Headcorn, Smarden, Pluckley, Chart and Ashford.
106.17miles. 7.04.50 Riding Time. 15.00Avg. 2431ft Elevation Gain. Max Speed 33.4mph. Pinnacle Pyrolite 2014

To make and add a heatmap picture of your 12 qualifying rides as below, you can use linked to your Strava account.

A reminder of the rules:

-A century is a single ride of at least 100.0 miles as measured on a reasonably accurate cycle computer. 99.9 miles or less is not a century.

-Breaks/stops during the ride are permitted for refreshment/repairs/sightseeing etc but stops to sleep and stops at your home are not permitted.

-A qualifying century cannot start before 0001hrs on the morning of the first day of the calendar month.

-For qualifying rides ridden on the last day of the month: the 100.0 mile mark must have been passed by 2359.59 hrs on that day.

-If you miss a month you are out of the challenge, no exceptions for any reason, riding more than one century in a month does not entitle you to miss a month in lieu.

-Centuries ridden on rollers/turbo trainers/indoor velodromes do not count towards the challenge.

Successful participants of the Cycle Chat Century A Month challenge are entitled to display a gold star

If for any reason you can't edit your post when adding a newly completed ride, Please PM Shaun and ask that he allow's you to edit your post.

Good luck to all those that enter. See you on the road.

Here for the ride.
Now a year older (56½). This year I've switched to uploading from my Edge 520 (instead of the 200) so I've become a much better climber. Still riding my trusty aluminium-framed Raleigh Pioneer Venture tourer (2005).


January 2017 (C273): 4/1/17, Forest of Dean, Wye Valley (not the well-known bit), Malverns and Severn Valley. Pretty hard going, but the uploaded stats aren't too bad. 110.23 miles.

February 2017 (C275): 4/2/17, An anitclockwise circuit including the lower Wye Valley, the Severn Bridge and returning along the eastern side of the Severn estuary. Two biggish climbs at English Bicknor and Tintern to add spice. 103.68 miles.

March 2017 (C278): 4/3/17, A bit more hilly this time, according to the stats. Westwards past Ross and taking the road around the back of the Abergavenny Sugar Loaf, Then back over the Forest of Dean. 121.08 miles.

Following the retirement of my Pioneer Venture tourer with a cracked head tube, the regular bike from April until further notice is a cromoly-framed Raleigh Pioneer Trail 4000 hybrid, converted to a light touring configuration using spare parts.

April 2017 (C281): 3/4/17, Three interlocking roughly equally-sized loops around the lower Severn Valley. Extending northwards to Pershore late in the day, with fantastic views northwards from the slopes of Bredon Hill as far as the Stretton Hills. 125.42 miles.

May 2017 (C286): 9/5/17, On holiday in East Yorkshire, so that's where this month's ride was. A clockwise loop from Sewerby, near Bridlington through the southern Wolds, the Derwent Valley, Castle Howard and the northern Wolds. Very, very cold. 122.47 miles.

June 2017 (C290): 9/6/17, A bit of animal art, in the shape of a sea horse. Quite hilly, including the Forest of Dean and two crossings of the Malverns. Last 25 miles straight into the wind. 120.33 miles.

July 2017 (C293): 9/7/17, A trip to the seaside, taking in part of the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean on the way down, and returning over the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Felt hard going in the heat, but the climbing stats suggest I have reason to be tired. 121.35 miles.

August 2017 (C295): 1/8/17, Herefordshire, largely avoiding any significant hills but rarely flat. Some seriously heavy showers but thankfully no lightning or hail. 126.65 miles.

September 2017 (C298): 2/9/17, Over the Cotswolds, the Thames and the Berkshire Downs to the upper Lambourn Valley. Back through the Cotswold Water Park and Stroud.. Yan Tan Tethera - 123.54 miles.

October 2017 (C301): 6/10/17, An Autumnal tour of the southern Cotswolds, the lower Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean - 127.19 miles.

November 2017 (C304): 1/11/17, Lots of climbing in the Forest of Dean and over the river Wye to Trelleck. Just shy of the 2500m I was hoping for, but still a big PB - 117.31 miles.

December 2017 (C306): 2/12/17, Completed the challenge with a rather wet Worcestershire/Shropshire/Herefordshire loop to Tenbury Wells. Felt weak after two heavy viruses last month, so took it very steady - 113.49 miles.

07/01 - 127 miles - From Stokey to Shenfield, the long way 'round
Highbury-Great Dunmow - Sudbury - outskirts of Chelmsford - Maldon Shenfield. A grey day, but a really nice and reasonably fast ride, which included a brief stay at Paradise (good breakfast!) and a nice afternoon lunch at Maldon's Weatherspoons. And all this in stunning company: @AKA Bob , @Michael Adu , @Swiss Racer, @maffyoube and, for bits, @frank9755 , @mllond and @Eddie_C

04/02 - 133 miles - ACME's Knights Templar Compasses Crosses Winter Brevet + ECE
The final edition of ACME's spiffing Winter Brevet Series. As in previous months, we rode out from Highbury to the start in Witham and afterwards to the urban hell called Basildon to get the train back to London. Thanks to @Michael Adu and @maffyoube for your company

18/03 - 127 miles - Pork Pie Audax
From Cambridge to Melton Mowbray and back. Really hard work due to a stiff headwind on the way out, and some nasty gradients in Leistershire.

14/04 - 130 miles - Candy and harvesting machinery DIY
Good Friday in Westfalia, with @4x5 - a mostly flat ride with some steep but short climbs in the Teutoburg forest. We came through the home town of Werther's Originals candy (Werther) and Claas harvesting machinery (Harsewinkeln). My sturdy old touring bike has eventually earned its AUK sticker!

19/05 - 126 mils - Take the long way home
This season's first after work audax from Canary Wharf to Sudbuy and back to Highbury. Solo ride on virtually traffic free roads once outside the greater London area. Amazingly, I managed not to catch a single drop of rain.

03/06 - 257 miles - Asparagus & Strawberries
Two years ago, the A&S was my first 400 ever, and the wheels almost came off. After blowing up during the night section, I crawled back to Manningtree. How different this year was: A very swift ride with @Michael Adu and @jiberjaber turned out into one of my fastest Audaxes ever. (Partly because @jiberjaber was on fire and pulled me through the night.) Gives me more confidence for LEL.

15/07 - 207 miles - The Barons 200 miler
Last big ride before LEL, jointly with @AKA Bob . Two loops around Essex, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the bicycle. Evening start, a glorious sunset, and a fanstastic night ride with a good group.

13/08 - 127 miles - Surrey Hills, Ditchling, the beach and the devil
Turns out that riding LEL is the ideal prep for a non-flat DIY 200. Used parts of the London 100 route, the Hilly 50 and the FRNttC to Brighton. Had to go back to Burgess Hill to bring it above 200k. First time I rode Box Hill and had a proper look at Devils Dyke. Great company, with @mllond , @AKA Bob and @Swiss Racer.

9.9. - 382 miles - The Flatlands - An experience and a half. Large parts of the route were a re-run of LEL, only without the nice bits. Was very close to packing after running into the police road block of the accident which involved three riders at 3am on a Lincolnshire A road, but the lack of any half-sensible bailout points saved me. Headwinds on day two in the Fens were worse than on LEL.

21.10. - 128 miles - First meeting of the Audaxing Self Help Group in Frankfurt. My optimistic hope were to meet three or four lost souls at best, but in fact we were a group of 15 riders. Many flat bits following the Main and Rhein, and then some serious climbs in the Odenwald.

18.11. - 138 miles - Down the Rhine valley - A ride on memory lane, as more than 25 years ago, my first solo multiday ride was on a similar route

19.11. - 126 miles - A foray into Bavaria - I was starting to get worried about my December ride, as the original plan to do it on the 9th was foiled by snow and a cold. But thanks to a couple of days off I had to take before Christmas, I could to a mid-week ride. Frankfurt to Darmstadt, then into the hilly Odenwald, back to Darmstadt and Frankfurt.
