    Week 10 Update of the Cycling Monks Strava Group. Week ending 9th August 2020.

    Club Stats. 334 members collectively rode 36202 km in 950 rides, climbing 176641 metres in 1684 hours!

    The number of members are up by 19 as compared to last week. Total kilometres, rides, elevation gain and number of hours on the saddle have all gone down this week. In a large part this was due to the lockdown being enforced in many parts of the country as well as the monsoon wreaking havoc along the western coast.

    Group target is to hit 1000 rides next week!

    Leaderboard: Overall

    Sumit Patil had stated that he would be gunning for the top spot in the overall mileage leaderboard this week. But he fell short by quite a few kilometres!

    After a week away from the top, Sukhwinder Singh from Punjab was once again top of the charts. He has been in the first couple of positions for the last 6 weeks! He rode a mind boggling 1288 km.

    In second place is new entrant in this spot Sumit Patil from Maharashtra who rode 841 km in the week. He couldn’t hit his target, but an impressive mileage nonetheless. He is training for his 24 hour Time Trial on the 15th of August.

    Third spot is taken by Subu Narayanan from Tamil Nadu. He rode 755 km. His mileage has been consistent over the weeks, along with his average speed.

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