Yup. Easy to do when I escape the Canadian winter to points south.

Not sure I will get outside enough to log the full mileage needed. Indoors (trainer) is mostly where I will be.

Those riding outside in these short days, be safe.

Rapha is sponsoring another insane one-go brevet in the PNW - starting at the Seattle store and circling the Oly Peninsula.. Requires teams of two minimum. Keep an eye on IG.

As for me, probably following similar to Nobuseri. I'll get outside when I can, otherwise it is hours and hours of trainer time.

well, i may make a go of it.

it's the 10 year anniversary, and i did complete it in the first year.

the weather and time available are going to dictate, but we'll see how it goes!

I do it every year without even thinking about it.

Wait, we're talking about 500 meters, right?

I'm going to try to do it, with the biggest limiting factor being how many flat tires I get if it rains.

I did it last year. Weather was decent, snowed one day, was really cold about half the days. This year is not looking good, weather seems fine but might not be able to be out there everyday since wife said last year I was absent from too many xmas activities.

I realized back in September that if I could manage the 200 miles/week I'd been riding that I could actually get 10,000 outside miles this year.

But it is dependent on the Rapha 500 boost in the last 8 days od December.

Weather looks promising for me to find success for the RF500 as well as my own lofty goal...

I had 5k mile goal this year and I am just too behind that the festive 500 wont do it. Maybe if it did I would really go for it but I might just ride as I wish and see if it happens.

Weather looks great. Very cold but no snow or rain.

Definitely. Not as much of a challenge here as for you hardy folk in the north, so this year I'm planning for 500 miles rather than km, fell 65mi short of that last year.

I might get 500 laps at the track in if all goes well.

There will be no outside riding. Too much snow and cold.

Planning on getting up extra early tomorrow and putting a small dent on this. We shall see. I went fat biking yesterday and man, my whole body is aching.
