I’m in first place for the coldest temp on two (-21F) and three wheels (-5F). Second place is –9F and I have third place at –5F followed by –3F. I’m also unofficially winning the miles category with 917 (before the below video). By comparison, the first place person on two wheels had 607 miles at the last update. I should have 953 miles, but due to a rounding error I have 917 in the PBC. Miles * 0.6 = km is not very accurate compared to miles * 0.621 = km.
Unfortunately, I am the only sidecar in the challenge, so I am winning all three categories there (distance, # of rides, coldest temp). It is very likely I will get the coldest ride on two wheels also since there is just a week left.
Point-wise, I am leading the entire challenge with a huge margin of 2740 points. The second and third place positions are 1123 and 1113 respectively.
Points are awarded for each mile ridden. The colder the ride the more points. 32F = 1.0 points. 31 = 1.1 points and so on down to 0F. No extra points are awarded for subzero temperatures due to a glitch on the judge’s side. Points are just for testing this year and will be the official record next season.
I’ve done two rides on two-wheels and twenty-five rides on three wheels. I’ve been told by the judge that I need to do one more ride to “qualify” in the two wheel group. It’s a bit silly, but I will make one more video to comply.
I’ve skipped many miles of videos over the last few weeks since each one takes at least an hour (usually two) to make. PBC #27 will likely be my last three-wheeled video for this season.
