Welcome to the 14th 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

If you want to make and add a heatmap picture of your 12 qualifying rides as below, you can use linked https://www.jonathanokeeffe.com/strava/map.php 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 refreshments/repairs etc but over elongated stops, 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

Here for the ride.
Location
Gloucester
Back again ^_^

January 2020 (Century 366): 1/1/20, the Grand Départ for Luke Grenfell-Shaw's thoroughly admirable Bristol to Beijing charity adventure, plus Gloucester to Bristol and back. 101.38 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/2973578315

February 2020 (Century 368): 5/2/20, a loop into Herefordshire along the Severn Valley, twice across the Malverns and encircling Leominster. 125.98 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/3074371925

March 2020 (Century 369): 6/3/20, a circuitous route into and out of Worcestershire, seeking to avoid floods and long hills. 124.88 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/3159891449

April 2020 (Century 370): 4/4/20, local lanes, keeping within 10 miles of home at all times, but largely avoiding repetition. 102.44 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/3254706600

May 2020 (Century 372): 3/5/20, within a 14 mile radius in the Kempley/Ledbury/Welland quadrant. No repetition! 111.16 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/3392006769

June 2020 (Century 376): 8/6/20, another loopy lockdown ride north of Gloucester. Boxbush - Tewkesbury - Phocle Green - Defford. 144.26 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/3588845962

July 2020 (Century 377): 2/7/20, continuing with the corona-compliant looping style north of Gloucester, this time extending up to Worcester. An hour of heavy rain around Tewkesbury. 125.09 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/3703941131

August 2020 (Century 380): 3/8/20, further relaxation to personal corona restrictions, taking in a loop to Bosbury and Castle Frome. Then back over the Malverns to Upton for water before looping back to Newent to complete. Skip's 100th century. 125.25 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/3859528280

September 2020 (Century 381): 16/9/20, Gloucester to Bridgwater via Severn Beach, Clevedon, Burnham-on-Sea and a foray into the Somerset Levels. 125.09 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/4069976127

October 2020 (Century 383): 13/10/20, Gloucester - Tysoe (Warwickshire) - Wellesbourne - Lench Hills - Gloucester. 127.23 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/4190171655

November 2020 (Century 384): 16/11/20, Starting and finishing in Gloucester, wandering around Worcestershire in search of A-G in the saints' names challenge. 103.03 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/4346876470

December 2020 (Century 385): 30/12/20, Original route abandoned due to unexpectedly heavy lying snow in Worcestershire. Stuck to main roads - Eckington Bridge being passable was a bonus. Ended up back in Gloucester with too few miles so had to spend some time fiddling around to click up the necessary digits. There've been better moments this year, but I made the challenge again. 100.47 miles.
https://www.strava.com/activities/4540765690

Good to hit 20 centuries for the year as well.
