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!June 17, 2011 at 8:09 pm #84127June 20, 2011 at 4:39 pm #84128
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.
Our team total is currently 20 miles. Not bad, but I reckon we can do better so please sign up and join in!Don't forget to add your own signature! 1) Click your name in the top left (under Home once logged in) 2) Click Edit link on the left menu 3) Fill in "Your Forum Signature" 4) Click Update ProfileJune 20, 2011 at 5:56 pm #84129
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 allJune 21, 2011 at 10:01 pm #84130
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.June 21, 2011 at 10:29 pm #84131
Ahh, I have joined my team at work. Didn’t realise there was a Boris Bike one – that would have been much cooler!June 22, 2011 at 11:01 am #84132
Ditto – joined work team and can’t jump ship to the BB one
Up to 62 miles now thoughJune 22, 2011 at 6:34 pm #84133

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.Don't forget to add your own signature! 1) Click your name in the top left (under Home once logged in) 2) Click Edit link on the left menu 3) Fill in "Your Forum Signature" 4) Click Update ProfileJune 23, 2011 at 1:16 pm #84135June 23, 2011 at 3:58 pm #84136
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 thoughJune 24, 2011 at 7:53 pm #84137
Come on team, it’s the weekend, great time to cycle all over London. Let’s make Boris proud of us!June 27, 2011 at 8:00 am #84138
119 miles now.
BUT! I’m logging all my bike rides, not just BB onesJune 27, 2011 at 10:48 am #84139

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
bet it’s really nasty on the tube. BB’s are going to be in short supply this afternoonJune 27, 2011 at 3:13 pm #84140
Yes, it’s been very hot. I wasn’t able to get a BB today, but will try again tomorrow. Best of luck, team!
