Looks like I'm out :(

Need one more week off the road for the fracture in my radius that I got when I was hit by a car at the end of January. Next ride will be beginning of March sono Febuary rides to record.

Real pity, was enjoying this challenge. Will still aim to keep the 100ks rolling in, just won't be part of this.

Good luck everyone, happy riding.

I know very cheeky but can I join? I have done January and February metric centuries so I'm technically not 'catching up' - I had it in mind to do a metric century a month but just never saw this thread.

well yes, that is a bit cheeky! But I guess since the GPS track for your January ride seems legit, and (strangely) I am presumably deciding... You're in.

You'll be in the accounting for Feb, good luck.

Count me out. :(

Picked up a virus in January and was "hors de combat" for a month. Hauled myself out in sleet and sub-zero temperatures last weekend, and laboured my way up to the 71k mark when my back tyre exploded. Couldn't fix it with frozen hands so had to abandon.

No more opportunities for February. Damn its 28 days!

i really think we should consider a 'broken bone' papal dispensation here. i was out in 2011 with a broken neck, literally missing the may deadline by 1 day as was not allowed to cycle for six weeks. was gutted when i had to drop out -- felt worse than having to bag the cycling trip to the french alps!

i would totally support allowing gthyer to continue once he is allowed back on the bike, perhaps with an asterick (very tour de france)?
