    That's about the time we stop riding and begin the toast at the FSLNHPP.
    Then we ride home.

    I've just completed the yearly cleaning of the database to prepare it for the new competition, and after consulting both this thread and some official documentation the dates in the system are now fixed:

    Code:
    # When does the competition end?
    # This can be an exact time;
    # the API will start recording rides began after this time.
    START_DATE=2020-01-01T00:00:00-05:00
    
    # When does the competition end?
    # This can be an exact time;
    # the API will stop recording rides ended after this time.
    END_DATE=2020-03-20T00:00:00-04:00

    Looks like you included that final second.

    Sure, but this is way more strict than last year, where we included an ENTIRE MINUTE of what is effectively a grace period for ride end times to be included, the setting for 2019 was:


    Code:
    END_DATE=2019-03-20T00:01:00-04:00
    (I assume it was that way in 2018 and earlier - when I updated this last year I didn't touch anything beyond the year, month, and day)
