Nice going. I finished mine yesterday, 501km! Lowest I've ever done - I would have gone out today on the mountain bike if it had snowed enough but it was just slushy/icy/muddy off road and wet/icy on road so called it a day.

Well done both.
I managed a Festive 300, well 319 by Tuesday to be precise. I'd hoped to get another 120 in and fill in the gap with a couple of short rides. The snow killed off that idea, and I haven't had the time to fit another long ride in.
Still, I enjoyed the riding I did, and probably wouldn't have done all of it without the counting, so I'll be entering again.

Yeah I completed today as well. The weather was stunning in Cambs: - 1°C up to +1°C with loads of frost and a very limited amount of ice.

I'm not usually a badge collector (which seems just as well this year) but I enjoyed it and will probs do it again next time.

Happy New Year to everyone - even those who did it on a turbo... :lol:
