    Week 6 Update of the Cycling Monks Strava Group. Week ending 12th July 2020.

    Club Stats. 249 members collectively rode 27518 km in 780 rides, climbing 165196 metres in 1352 hours!

    The number of members are up compared to last week, but due to lockdowns being enforced in many parts of the country, riding is down. As compared to last week, total kilometres, rides, climbing and number of hours on the saddle are marginally up.

    Leaderboard: Overall

    Top of the charts is once again Super Randonneur Sukhwinder Singh from Punjab clocking a 853 km. The second successive week that he has ridden more than 800 km.

    In second place once again is Rahul Nalawade from Maharashtra who rode 643 km in the week. Another consistent rider at the top of the charts.

    Third spot is taken by Sachin Namade from Maharashtra. He rode 513 km.

    *Only outdoor rides and ‘smart indoor trainer’ rides considered.
