    Shredhead's Sock Challenge

    Who remembers this?

    This weather reminded me of it.

    Don't ask me why, but I've still got that photo saved in my file. But thats the wrong contest. I think the one AntonioGG is referring to is the commuter distance challenge and it went down to the wire between Shredhed and Druber.

    I think it was called the Crappy Forecast Challenge.

    This is how it all started:

    Hey Cody,

    I am thinking about throwing out a challenge to motivate people to ride this week. How much are the Swiftwick socks? What is the most expensive pair?

    Here is my idea to post on the HH forum:

    The challenge: put in the most miles between Tuesday Jan 11th at 12:01am CST and Friday Jan 14th at 11:59pm CST.

    The rules: the honor system, but you must be registered on this forum by midnight tonight and you must be in Austin (or within 50 miles of the capitol) all four days. On road or off-road - miles are miles. Trainer miles do not count. Miles only count on days that you work at least 6 hours and all 6 hours must be between 7 am and 7 pm CST on that day.

    The prize: One pair of Swiftwick socks from HH courtesy of me. If I win, I will just gloat.


    Cody, you ended up also throwing in a pair of Swiftwick arm warmers courtesy of the shop. I had to set some time parameters so people that are off during the day (or don't work, etc.) didn't have a distinct advantage of not having to ride in the dark (and colder temps). I think it came down to me and Druber, I think I had like 160 or 180 miles in the 4 days, but Druber came in with like 203. I had said I wouldn't go over 200 so I think he pegged that as his goal. There was a bit of poker face action throughout the week for sure as we tried to tell where we stood. I think those who took the challenge learned a lot that week about dressing for the cold and wet and temperature management.

    I was actually thinking about this the other day too. As much as I hate Strava/GPS breadcrumbs sometimes, that would have been really helpful for documentation though.

    Yes that's it! I do remember the poker face action. I don't think I ever rode that many cold and wet miles in a week since then.
