I Did Promise, Didn’t I?
Those with elephantine memories will recall that I (sort of) promised prizes for performance in the June100 challenge. I’d quite happily let it slide, but the problem with publishing stuff is that people can remind you what you said.
The June100 was free to enter, a characteristic which meant two things:
- There’s no money for prizes, and
- There’s no money for prizes.
So in the best tradtitions of the internet, here are the virtual prizes….
And The Winners Are:
In case you were wondering, the Mutton Bird has the furthest annual migrationary flight of any bird. In a figure-of-eight circumnavigation of the Pacific, it covers around 74,000 km (45,954 miles) in an average year. Give or take. John Berry has the furthest June 2010 leisure mileage of any man and thus he wins the Mutton Bird TShirt.
The other two shirts should be self-explanatory.
My personal Special Awards are given, fairly arbitrarily, as follows:
- Carrie Foster, for using the June100 challenge to actually motivate her to ride less. The weirdo.
- Rafe Forgot, for attempting to cover the 100 miles in just over a week despite not being allowed on his bike until the 18th on account of sawing his own thumb off. He only failed due to mechanical failure. Of his bike, not his half-a-thumb.
- Clive Chapman, for only recording his off-road Mountain Biking miles and still smashing the target, despite logging impressive (non-qualifying, demoralising) commuting miles.
You three get individual hugs from me. Except Clive, who doesn’t do hugging.
Onwards And Upwards!
