Nice work mate, & a good time to go with it.

Did my 2nd 50 yesterday, onwards & upwards towards the 100.

That says 99.6 ;-)

Great effort all the same, but the ocd in me means I'd have had to do an extra half a mile.

Impressive work!

I'm still struggling to do forty on two consecutive days. I've got a long way to go to match your achievements.

I was first on the challenge for half a day with 143.7 miles... then the countries with more daylight woke up and smashed me to bits! Oh well.

Kudos and also to anyone who does it solo.

Good prep for the Rapha 500 in a couple of weeks :wink:

Well done to all that completed the challenge. I did it yesterday, not 100 miles and very slow, but plenty of climbing. Was really struggling towards the end, as can be seen from my times.

lol trying to find our way to Dolan Cycles on the way out there.. nearly pressed the go button on a track bike while having a well deserved coffee. Cheers Mr Dolan.. :lol:

took a wrong turn near the end and ended up with a puncture
just my luck, wish i did have a pizza as it would have been demolished while fixing the tube lol
had a great trip with only 1 mech stop so all was good

Well, as it stands, I am at the top of the leaderboard in my country. That's not saying much as there weren't that many entries in Switzerland, which is odd seeing as Switzerland is the home of BMC.

Hopefully, they'll send me a special prize, especially seeing as I ride an SLR01 :)

Congratulations. Especially doing in when the days are getting shorter.

I did my first 50 miles today. I was hitting a wall at 43 miles, probably due having no food and only drinking a few hundred ml. I can't wait for the long summer nights

Oh, Robbo by shear coincidence I was wearing a BMC Team jersey (the only jersey that matches the colour of my red, black and white Specialized) under a Mammut softshell jacket I bought when I was once climbing in Switzerland.
