    I suppose I can use Endomondo again...

    They did change a couple things it seems, and it seems faster but the interface to upload one. ride. at. a. time. still. sucks.

    I just logged in to Endomondo, went to the "new workout" section, and indeed there is an option to "import from file (.gpx/.tcx/.fit)", so you can export a GPX from Strava (since you're a premium member) and import that into Endomondo. I tried it with my ride from Saturday and it worked fine.

    Oh man, I didn't even think about an IFTTT connection for Strava/Endomondo, etc. - that would be killer.

So, they both have features I like, and I haven't found both features in either, so it's both!
    Use Cyclemeter- it announces relative pace and performance (as simple or as complicated as you like) and integrates (via gpx) with Strava. I loves it.

    (Edit) So, Endomodo doesn't have an email upload? If it did I could upload to both Strava and Endomodo at the same time

    Full Disclosure- I'm an unpaid beta tester, but the Abvio team is great

    Can't be all that tough, I'm currently ranked #1 nationally on the warm up, the only locals (Arlington?) were Tim and Zanna who haven't logged anything yet. I think I ended up somewhere in the top 100 for the full challenge last summer, Rod Smith and Dirt were ahead of me (again, and still are for FS). Just remember, you get double the daily points (20 instead of the FS 10), so consistency helps. I lost almost 200 points right off the bat because I was traveling without bike access.

    Can't we just run a protest competition.

    Simiar rules, but tweeked for our own enjoyment, and logged on STRAVA.

    I would have loved to get the March Madness tournement up and running, but I didn't think there was much support for continuing the "insanity".

    We could May 1 to July 31 (the summer one seemed to drag out). We could even give out toilet paper with Bike Arlington logo hand drawn on it if you like?

    What do you guys say?

    My two cents. To make it fair, how about a team consisting of the top five men and top five women from the BAFS challenge? To make it fair for the other teams in the challenge because I think the top ten riders from BAFS would win easily. I was on a team that finished fifth last year and we had several on the team who didn't ride very much.

    I'm fine with whatever "competition"/challenge, it's all good motivation for me. I forgot about the March Madness idea. A short comp. might be fun too.

    I don't get why it's unfair to win? I seem to remember the top 3 or so teams had some monster mileages.
