Is there much to explain?

Prizes are 3 deep with a special bonus cat for longest ride (excludes SeanAllen and TahoeBC) :p


Multipliers?

Roadie: 0.4x
SS: 1.1x
Indoor trainer: 0.5x
Spin class with spandex: 0.6x
Spin class in sweats and tennies: 0.9x
Riding with your SO: 1.2x
Riding with your friend's SO: 1.5x ;) we'll stop there.
Estrogen (this includes men with monthly injections): 1.1x
Rain ride: 1.2x
Nekkid at FO: 400mi bonus

A very good result would be north of the Nekkid bonus.

Questions? Quibbles about the multipliers?

Questions? Quibbles about the multipliers?
Can we take measurements of my wife's and my relative efforts and power output while we're on the tandem? I have a feeling my "with SO" multiplier should be a little higher. Just a feeling I have, perhaps based on how I ride a lot and she rarely rides, yet when we're on our tandem I'm drowning in sweat and can't talk 'cause I'm breathing so hard, and she's singing and pointing out all the sights.

(Hope she doesn't read this. Could be trouble... ;) I was just joking Sweety!)

Edit to set the record straight: I had to buy a HR monitor for my wife because she was working TOO hard on the back of the tandem, and arriving home completely exhausted. I kept telling her to turn it down a notch, but she wouldn't until I got her the monitor and she saw how hard she was working in comparison to me. Turns out I'm the lazy one. (And no, Sweety did not see or request this correction.)

This will be fun but can someone do the math for me? All those multipliers got my head spinning.

This week I've got 100 miles on the road. Help me out Rensho...what does that equal since I'm a lady. And, my road bike is broken so I only have two speeds. That counts for something too, yes?

I think Richelle gets super extra points for the pregnant-in-spandex thing.

In that case, I would like to go on a 50 mile nekkid ride at FO with dustbunny and MiniMae. :thumbsup:

Sorry guys, I couldn't help myself. :D
hmm... so if I use a SS, is that
[(1.1)*(1.5)*(50+400)]*2
or
{[(1.1)*(1.5)*(400)]^2}*(# of time this happens)
or maybe its a triangle thing:
{[(1.1)*(1.5)*(50+400)*'pregnancy factor']^2 + [(1.1)*(1.5)*(50+400)]^2 } ^(1/2)

how does spin class get more points than roadie?
Any goals set Rensho?

Fremont Older... here I come!
(he didn't include the fine print that says a stationary bike goes zero miles, unless you bunny hop it a couple inches closer to to the hottie)

Don't piss her off before super bowl.

Besides, as I remember it there is at least one, um, dimension that gets a 1.2 multiplier when pregnant.
Be nice, or it's gonna be hands-off for you, daddio.

No promises of up-to-Coe and back, but I could show you the local 1/2 dirt ride that's not bad. Sunday late am? Around 11?

The first part is easy...

100 roadie mile in Jan=100x0.4x1.1xjanuary multiplier=0
There you go. 0 miles.

Who's next with a Q? Blondie in the back with the Suzanne Summers Three's Company tube top on.

If you can arrange that, more powuh to ya.

400+50x1.5x1.5=512mi in one ride.

I'd make sure to bring the SS as well.
