    i really like bikejournal! both hubby and i are premier members... i think it's definitely worth $10.00 a year!
    you could split the miles maybe? or better yet - tell them you're going to join that OTHER club if they don't become a premier club!!

    Attn any and all new (or not) riders

    We've got so many new members, I thought I'd bump this thread to the top. For any of you interested in keeping track of your rides, there's a great, free site out there called BikeJournal.com. It lets you track just about anything and everything you'd ever want to track on a ride and we've got a team going over there: Team Estrogen. Gives everyone a chance to see what everyone Else is doing.........or you can keep your miles private if you so choose. We'd love to see ya'll so come on down!!!

    And a postscript to that message, Corsair. I've been thinking of encouraging all our Club TE members to take the time to post the rides they are going to participate in so we can all follow each other's efforts. You can do that by going to the "RIDE" pull-down menu at the top navigation bar on the club home page at the BikeJournal website. If you have a favorite route in a PDF format, you can share it with us by posting it under the "MAPS" pull-down menu. A bit of trouble but sooo helpful to your fellow riders in your area!

    P.S. Corsair, think we can catch up with Audio-A and Bike Goddess this summer?

    Umm,... I hate to tell you ladies, but my plans are for a double imperial century weekend... don't know if I'll make it, since I've been off the bike since Monday (did 1.5 hours on the trainer - that's really not any fun, is it???) but now that I've said it outloud, I might really have to do this!

    Going to pay my way on BJ!

    Curses!!! Foiled again!! My weekend ride will be short and no ride at all next weekend so my "slip will be showing" on the mileage list pretty soon.

    I just noticed that I posted the idea to register your rides earlier in this thread and then repeated myself - what a drag it is getting old...

    P.S. Thanks for joining up, Techno! I think we discuss transfering club miles somewhere around here.

    Techno: are you transferring miles from another club you belong to on BJ? or just wanting to add your miles to date?
    If adding miles to date, just post as a journal entry your total miles and click the "bulk miles" tab. If transferring miles from another club....when you make Team Estrogen your primary club it will ask you if you want to transfer your miles!! and welcome to the team!

    Audio-A....just coz you SAY you're gonna do it...doesn't mean you HAVE to do it! I mean after all.....you HAVE free choice hun....you could just have a nice quiet day at home if you so choose and I for one would Never fault you for that!! (but if you do the imperial double....very good luck and my thoughts go with you!)

    It doesn't look like I'm going to be MTB'ng tomorrow so I'm thinking of taking on another century. Ya know - to see if the extension to my route gets me my extra 4 miles and well ya know...other things!

    Wow! I am humbled! I can not envision doing 100 miles of riding all at once!! the longest ride I've done yet was 75 kilometers!! and then I was sick after, so go figure. yeah, maybe now that we have that worked out I can start working towards it. so if I'm only supposed to add 10% from one big ride to the next, and I only do one big road ride a week, how many weeks will it take me to get to 100 miles if my last ride was 27 km?

    any math wizards out there?

    Namaste,
    ~T~

    I added miles in 20-25 increments. My thought process was (in your case) I did 27 km so I KNOW I can do that....so I'll just add another 27 kms. If that works for you, you would be doing a metric century in 4 wks give or take.

    and I gotta ask coz darn it Audio - now you've got me thinking: how far is an imperial century?


    does anyone know of any Long Distance Riders Anonymous meetings in my area?

    Thanks for mentioning this. I just added a ride on bike journal and saw another member from TE is already signed up. Maybe I'll see Technotart in Paris, TX in July.

    Hello, My name is Leslie and I'm a bike-a-holic. (TE gang: Hello, Leslie!)...

    I doubt I'll be going a century tomorrow. I rode today with another woman, and we started out way, way too fast, so even though we got our miles in (sorry C-Mac - I can't help myself!) I'm feeling it tonight. I'm gonna ride, but we'll see about the mileage.

    An imperial century is 100 miles, a metric century is 62.6 miles, or 100 kilometers. So, a few weekends ago, I did an imperial century, followed by a metric. I've never done back-to-back 100 mile days. Maybe next weekend... Sorry, I can't help myself!

    Oh - Early on, I think it's important to slowly build up miles, but I believe that after a time, that 10% rule can get stretched, quite a bit. I was regularly doing 40, slowly bumped up to 50, and then rather quickly went to 60, 64, 74, 80, and then started doing 100's. No ill effects to speak of, except for this pesky addiction.

    Oh, so an imperial century is just a way of saying a century of miles rather than kilometers! I was thinking, hmm... were King George's miles longer than our colonial miles??? But I guess it would only be longer if you were riding nautical miles and then you'd be getting wet.
