And don't forget about the cakes!It seriously beats just walking into my office in terms of staying active!
The exact number is just a side effect of the year I did Team Bike Challenge with my cycling group.
It is/was a team-based, month-long ‘race’.
The year I participated it was for points, and the maximum points you could get was from riding 25+ miles.
My group was short 1 person to fill out the five-person team, so I joined essentially as a domestique to make sure we had maximum possible points every day — which meant I found a coffee shop 25 miles away and used it as an excuse to work on my novel. I varied routes a bit because doing the same ride every single day does get a bit old, and some days I got in more miles.
We had 2 folks doing 100 miles a day for the entire month.
The contest tracked miles too, but didn’t record anything over a hundred and only scored up to 25.
At the end of the month, we won by a margin of double over our nearest competitor, and the next year they changed all the rules.
I liked the coffee shop enough to just keep riding there!
