    Since there is a 1,000,000 push up and 2,500 miles run thread, I thought it'll be a good idea to make a thread for us cyclists!

    Let's take a ride to the moon - the average distance from Earth to the Moon is 384,400 kilometers (238,855 miles)

    I ride the bike every day so hopefully with your help we'll reach the goal quite fast :yesway:

    I'll start with 10 miles = 16km :yesway:

    Damn you, you just couldn't make this thread like 4 months earlier but when the cycling season is almost over? :lol: But well, I also bike every day so at least I will contribute for a while. :)

    20 km (12.5 miles)

    Total: 36 km

    I just use Google Maps but it is pretty unpractical if you have to do a lot of turns.

    Oh, didn't think of that. But does stationary bike count? I mean it is no easier than riding a real bike but still kinda lame how you don't move anywere. Although, I also drive a stationary bike so it would be great if it counts.

    I'm not always on the road. It's hard to add up how many miles I go when I use several entire school campuses as my personal playgrounds/workout resistance.

    Yeah, but the GPS on it has always been about a mile off.
