Ever tried to find someone in that list before? Or was the order important?

Nice work, gnomin.

Finished my fourth century last Thursday. First was last year, second and third were on consecutive days during the Child Soldier Cycle. Thursday’s ride was my 190km move back to Kingston from Ottawa with a bag that was too heavy for that ride; I’ve got the scrapes to prove it. Don’t think I’ll ever try that kind of distance with that much weight again.

My next goal is also to do one in 10 hours or less! That has been a wish for the last three but I think I’ll actually try it next time.

Order of names

I personally preferred the sequential list because when someone adds their name you can see it at the end of the list. Since most people have a screen name different from their name it allows you know who’s who.

tell the truth

Do riders stop and rest during the 100 miles?
Are all completed with a 36er or anyone try with a 29er

Thanks Terry :slight_smile: congrats on your recent century as well!

Yeah, it was probably assuming biking calories. And the cranks are the 100mm Qu-Ax, the shortest ones in the photo…

Me and the uni after finishing the last two miles in the dark…

I stopped several times. Actual elapsed time was 11hrs 54 minutes. Actual riding time was 9hrs 45 minutes. My next goal is to get an elapsed time of less than 10 hours.

From memory, I stopped at 14, 28, 46, 54, 63, 72, 81, 87, 94, 99 (had to dismount to get past some dogs…), and finally 100.

The first three stops were actually my longest, probably about 15, 20, and 25 minutes respectively, accounting for an hour of my 2hrs and 9 minutes of “out of the saddle” time. The other 7 stops added up to 1 hour 9 minutes, so were a bit shorter… :slight_smile:

Oups!

This is very strange for me. I got my 36” since about three months. The longest trip I did so far was twice about 45 km. But two weeks ago I started a tour with the idea in mind to do a real long ride. I then ended up with 127 km (triple marathon). Last Saturday evening I decided to try to top this, replaced the 137mm cranks with 125mm and started Sunday early morning. The first 55km I did non-stop in 3:10. Overall I made 170.2 km (105.7 miles) in 13:07 (10:51 cycling).

I was aware that this is more than four marathons, but I am not used to miles at all. I only discovered now that I hit a mark of which I was even not aware of.

Feel honored to add my name (Frank D.):

Hmm, I sort of liked the old list, in order of when the person posted (and thus pretty much in order of when the rides were). Alphabetizing by name makes some sense, but by first name?

Why shouldn’t the FIRST name come first? :wink:

+1 on liking the old chronological list. Alphabetical is for libraries and other booring stuff.

+2 this new one sucks! Alphabetical means nothing when you have ctrl+f!

Back to the good ol’ version, updated. Did I miss anyone at the end?

Century on Muni

Hi all,
Well I’m a puss, I spent eleven and a half hours and only completed 61 miles, on the fullerton loop, Four circuits. But that at least gets me into my age catagory, I’ll have to post that too. I was so beat that the next day I just was shot. I completed the ride I did on a 24" 180mm crank custom Muni. (You know the one) and I thank God for the suspension, but I wish I had more stamina. I’ll try again, but not for a while.

Congrats on the 61 miles! That’s a great accomplishment on such a small wheel with GARGANTUAN sized cranks! The sheer monotony of doing the same loop four times, let alone more than once in succession, would make my ADHD go off the scale…if I didn’t die from boredom first! :wink:

But I guess it wouldn’t be as bad as 400 laps on a 1/4 mile track! :astonished: Get a 36er and 114mm–or at most 125mm cranks–and you should be able to do a century with ease!

impressive, lobbybopster!

Holy smokes! Your feet moved the same distance as they would going 132 miles on a 36er with 125s!

I would go crazy just trying to keep my legs moving with those cranks on a 24.

Wow.

There should be another list for rides that are harder than 100 miles. 61 miles on a long-cranked 24 would definitely qualify. Nice work. When you try again, if you use the same wheel, go with 125 or shorter (I would recommend 100mm or even shorter. Jack Hughes did 125 miles on day 1 of the STP some years ago on a 24, so it is doable. I was once passed riding a Coker by a fleet of Japanese girls at 18mph on 24" cycles with 65mm cranks. Some of the Japanese riders go even shorter than that too. Short is the way - much easier on your body.

—Nathan

Note: the old list is not exactly chronological. There were some people after my century that were listed above me, the list is mostly just in the order that people have added, not exactly chronological.

I’d agree though, the old list is better.

P.S. I liked the alphabetical list too, because I as on top :slight_smile: :sunglasses:

Getting ready for the day, checking the boards, saw this and just made me laugh out loud, the visual is hilarious! :slight_smile:

and I agree with the “Wow! Lobbybopster!”

You said “cycles”, which could be the two wheeled variety. Now that I’d believe! :stuck_out_tongue:

Ok, they were unicyclists, in a Unicon 10km race, and I was on a borrowed Coker with long cranks racing my heart out. It was almost flat and I just could not get ahead. The group of Japanese girls was about 6 riders, in tight formation, and they looked funny, just moving their ankles really, but speeding at 17-18mph. They were so little that the width of their waists looked to be about the width of one of my legs. Wish I had a photo. There was one slight downhill and I managed to get ahead a little, but then they caught up again and 3-4 of them ended up finishing ahead of me.

My point is that a 24" wheel can be ridden very fast with the proper cranks. I don’t remember the minimum length they used but it was at most 55mm and maybe 50. I think I heard later a Japanese rider was using 45mm. They don’t have room to store big cycles so it makes sense that they optimize small ones.

Corrigendum: I did not trust my eyes, but I just discovered that my setup was R 125/L 150 :o

Only 61mi.

What I forgot to mention and Terry knows is that this is all offroad! I do a 15.2mi version so I can get coffee at Tully’s on Euclid. The long cranks are so I can get up the hills. It mostly is like running paced. The repitition helped the last lap, which was the turtle slowest. Hard to freemount after about the third lap.
