Thanks for the 5,000-mile chal­lenge

Cycling Weekly - - WHAT YOU’RE SAYING -

I’d love to know how many rid­ers have com­pleted your 5,000-mile chal­lenge so far this year. My to­tal is slowly tick­ing up to 4,000 miles and on my cur­rent tra­jec­tory the maths sug­gest I’ll hit the tar­get. How­ever, I know my cur­rent tra­jec­tory is now tail­ing off. I al­ways strug­gle for mo­ti­va­tion at this time of year and I know it’s go­ing to be hard to hit the tar­get, even with the monthly chal­lenges that have been keep­ing my go­ing. Even if I don’t hit the tar­get I’ll be sign­ing up again next year as it’s been great fun tak­ing part. Even if I don’t get a medal at the end of it.

CW - Glad to hear you’ve been en­joy­ing the chal­lenge so far Kevin, and that it’s been keep­ing you mo­ti­vated. As of go­ing to press we had 219 en­trants send­ing us proof they’d com­pleted the mileage. Ev­ery­one who con­tacts us with proof from their Strava pro­file (or other ride log­ging app) is added to the CW5000 fin­ish­ers club page on our web­site. There’s no shame if you don’t hit 5,000 miles though, if the chal­lenge has mo­ti­vated you to ride more then it’s been a suc­cess. And of course there’s al­ways next year!
