    Default 2013 National Bike Challenge

    It's back on Endomondo, everyone's favorite tracking site. It runs a month longer this year, May 1 to September 30.

    Maybe we can set up a team of the top ten riders from Freezing Saddles and make a run for the podium?

    I'd really like to sign up again - but am not excited about recording rides to another app. I hadn't started using Strava yet during last year's Endomondo challenge - anyone know if GPX exports from Strava rides can be imported to Endomondo easily enough?

    This will only cause me to throw the last week of Freezing Saddles. The insanity must stop.

    Default or Both??

    Lately I've started recording my rides in both Strava and Endomondo. I had been recording in Endo, and really like the voice feature - I set it to tell me my pace every mile. I can't usually hear it in heavy traffic, but otherwise, it's nice to know. Then I love the Strava segment comparison... So, they both have features I like, and I haven't found both features in either, so it's both!

    That won't work because I believe I am your competition for #11 and I would do exactly the same.

    So if I commit to a summer competition, I can relieve some pressure for the rest of the winter competition? Hmm....

    Can't speak for the others, but you have like a 260 mile advantage on me. There is no scenario where I can make that up in eight days. So back off all you want!

    In all seriousness, if you enjoyed this, or found it inspiring, by all means, join up with the NBC. I'm sure there will be enough interested BA folks to field several teams again.

    As for me, I have a lot of riding planned, but I think I will enjoy it more without being part of a larger effort.

    One of the things I've learned about you is that you can pull a century out of nowhere, on any given day. Even midweek while running errands. Every time I look at the leader board I imagine you doing a double century on the last day.

    As far as I know the only easy answer is to use a garmin device. I don't think endomondo has an email upload feature. Too bad neither of them have IFTTT profiles.
