Festive 500

Recommended Posts

Anyone else doing it?

Thought it would be easy, but my ass is grass and I still have 180 to go... Probably doesn't help that there's not much flat around here!

I'm in again and still have 256 kms to go with 3 days left. Should cover over half of that tomorrow with a ride in the Yarra Valley/Kinglake.

No idea what the festive 500 is but all I know is that I've been stuck with a mild but infuriatingly persistent cold since Christmas Eve and haven't ridden at all.

And it's killing me

If Zwift counted I would have about 60 to go. 
 still got 180 to go on the road.  I’ll get it plus km on Zwift. 
 

probably get 620 all up for this week.

Riding on the road with only half an eye working may not be the best idea. Even commuting to work is questionable right now.

140 to go - should just get there in time.  Festive 500 shirts are sold out in my size :( 

There’s shirts?

Yep. Just ticking it out by clocking up the minimal quota +/- a few % each day. 2019 saw a little llama join the family this year so I have to schedule things around that little guy... and his mum who's also going to hit the 500 tomorrow. Indoor kms counting would have been a godsend this year.

Nice work to everyone hitting the 500 (even 1/2 is a good week on the bike) :)

Happy (almost) 2020 Trannies!

Just now, more said:

Why don't indoor kms count? They are harder than outdoor-no rest at lights, no drafting etc

Against the spirit of the challenge.

Easier to fudge indoor Ks.

Ive got 110 to go tomorrow, 1 last century for the year.

Suppose, given you can tweak weight and power. Still if done properly Zwift Kms are always harder than outside Kms

97km this morning got me to 518

Done. Knackered. Don't want to look at my bike for a week. But I'm off on a training camp on Thurs 🤣

Gotta question the logic of doing the 500 just before a camp...
