    I just signed up for the team. I’m only around until July 4, so I’m not going to log a lot of miles, but I understand every little bit will help. Deadline to register is tomorrow, June 18!

    I’ve just heard from TfL Press Office. There is *no* deadline. People can sign-up and register throughout the running of the cycle challenge. i.e. until 15 July.

    That said, the challenge stated 2 days ago (18 June) so the sooner everyone joins our team and starts logging their miles the better.

    I’ve appointed both @claudia and @Cathryn as team admins so hopefully between us we will get you sign up approved quickly and you can start logging your miles.

    Our team total is currently 20 miles. Not bad, but I reckon we can do better so please sign up and join in!

    Ah, good to know we can still register. I appreciate the admin nomination, but we are travelling to the States in just a week and

    I will be away until beginning of August. Perhaps another member could help with admin? I’ll do my best to get in as many miles before that! Best of luck all :-)

    Happy to be admining, but no idea what I’m supposed to do. But if something looks like it needs doing, I’ll give it a go.

    Ahh, I have joined my team at work. Didn’t realise there was a Boris Bike one – that would have been much cooler!

    Up to 62 miles now though :)

    Replying to @yorkiebar‘s post:

    62 miles already that’s impressive – so far I’ve managed 1!

    We need some more people to join us otherwise we will be languishing in last place :oops:

    Well it looks like we are currently in position 171 out of 319 teams! Not bad I guess.

    I think typical Boris Bike journeys are much shorter than the lycra brigade so it’s alway going to be difficult to compete with them. That is unless we get all 40,000 boris bikers to join our team.

    We need more members like @BLINKY_DOYLE. He’s up to 73 miles! Well done!

    Go BlinkyDoyle!!!!

    I’m not much help as I only ride a few miles each week & I’ll be away for all of July. Hope others will join in. The team needs you! :-)

    thanks for the encouragement Claudia. I honestly hadn’t realised how many miles I was riding each day until I plotted the four rides on http://www.bikehike.co.uk/mapview.php (what a brilliant site)

    the rides in are easy, all downhill.

    I’m a bit messy when I get home though :oops:

    BUT! I’m logging all my bike rides, not just BB ones :)

    me too, sort of assuming that’s still within the spirit of the team.

    By the way, is it hot out there today or is it just me :oops:

    bet it’s really nasty on the tube. BB’s are going to be in short supply this afternoon

    Yes, it’s been very hot. I wasn’t able to get a BB today, but will try again tomorrow. Best of luck, team!
