Well done every one, I still find this addictive. Now the sad part, where do. Get the little stars form to put in my signature? I feel so shallow :smile:

Another and almost certainly final point for a metric half in the challenge today, giving me 62 points for the year.
Plus I passed my mileage target for 2018 in the same ride, so all is well in the North tonight.

Report over in the "Your ride today..." thread

Congrats to everyone who's achieved the challenge this year and good luck to everyone who is starting the whole thing again in a couple of days.
As expected, although I got out for an hour I didn't have time today to get another qualifying ride in, so I'm closing 2018 with 62 points on the board.

I've just checked and that is considerably better than last year when I only logged 43 points, although not as good as the year before when I had 77.

Got out today for my last 50km ride of the year.
I think that I only scraped the one 50 miler all year. Bit pathetic really. I did manage to get the last 27 miles that I needed to get over my 3000 mile target, plus another 5 to do the 50km.
I am a good 1100 miles down on last year. All this riding alone gets to you after a while. I'll try and find others to ride with next year.

I'm starting to think that there's a hoodoo on my attempts to reach 100 points.

Last year an accident in mid November resulted in 5 weeks off the bike and I ended up on 98 points.

This year my 27th December ride put me on 99 points with 4 days to go and the weather set fair, no problem.
I woke on the 28th feeling rough and worse next day which I knew nothing about as I slept for 24 hours. Slightly better now but the virus (?) has left me weak and dizzy, not good for bike riding! So I'm stuck on 99.

Overall though a reasonable year in the saddle, I especially enjoyed the summer heatwave and the challenge of riding through melting tar.

A total of 4204 miles ridden, including 430 on my turbo and 71 on my 'shopping bike' which is mainly used for trips to the allotment.
