    Default Who rode the longest 1/1/18 ride?

    Need to know so I can forge the golden ingot. (Made from free range wheel weights gathered off cars and trucks parked in bike lanes)

    We only have half the competitors on the leaderboard so you probably have to wait. People apparently don't read instructions.

    Rod, we have had this conversation before. It still is and has always been the "Longest Ride". I inhereted this pointless prize in this form and chose to keep it just as it is. This leaves it wide open to make a pointless prize of the longest day should you elect to.

    Probably Josh A, who rode 70 miles, but his Strava is private, so I can't tell if it was all "one ride". David Helms logged a ride of 52.5 miles. Bob James logged a ride of 50 miles and one of 30 miles. I guess he should have paused Strava instead of stopping it. Heck, I could have paused after my 12 mile ride and restarted this morning, pause this evening, restart tomorrow... It's all one ride until I select "save ride".

    Yeah yesterday was one Strava ride for me, but paused it three times I believe. If you want more details, let me know.

    Assuming you authorized the backend with "view private", it should be correctly recorded as a single ride for purposes of this challenge.

    If we have to, I assume we would apply the same rules that Strava does, i.e. rides have to complete within 24 hours.

    Though really if you are pausing a ride for more than a few hours, it isn't the same ride. It would be unfortunate if we had to add moving vs elapsed time checks for people trying to "work around" the intent of the challenge.

    Why the discord?
    The above example violates the Strava protocol as well as the rule and spirit of the Pointless Prize in question. Add to that Bob J as an example?! He is far from a N00b that does not know how a Garmin, a bike or FS works. He could crush this Pointless Prize with one leg on a balance bike should he chose to.

    If the general consensus of our oddly dressed, runny nosed, clickity clackety shoe bunch is to change from “A ride” to a “Day” I am fine with that. But it will be for next year as the contest in question has occurred and it would be altogether unfair to the existing but unknown Pointless Prize winner.

    Pretty sure the volunteer hosting the pointless prize gets to determine the rules of the game. Respect for those who volunteer.
