Many years ago (maybe 8?) there was a FPP about the owner of a cycling website who had passed away. [more inside]
I was recently looking to add MeFites on Strava to give myself a bit of extra motivation, but noticed that only 20 people have Strava listed in their profile. So, being the proactive guy that I am, I put together Team Metafilter over there and am hoping some of you would like to join up with me. I am a runner, but cyclists and others are more than welcome. Go team!
MeFi cyclists/runners: your Strava account, if you have one, is now linkable in the "Also On:" section of your profile. In this same update it looks like pb has also added: Steepster, Newsblur, Hacker News, ResearcherID, ResearchGate, and eBay (any others, pb?). Related link: MeFi Social Explorer (for finding other users with profiles on growing list of linkable communities). [more inside]
Any chance any MeFites are doing the North Fork Century on August 29? If yes, we could connect for celebratory beers and self-congratulation at the finish line. [more inside]
Update Filter: All charges dropped against former Ontario A-G Michael Bryant. [Previously]
If anyone here uses, or is looking for an excuse to use, DailyMile.com, I've created a MetaFilter group. [more inside]
Icycle Challenge, 2009 edition: The colder it gets, the higher your score -- this time exponentially -- so break out the long underwear and the studded tires! [more inside]
There are 73 days left in the Cycling Streak Challenge. It might look like ~35 days is a commanding lead, but any streak falls apart in just 24 hours, and with the adjusted rules - thanks to hanagashore's great generosity and competitive spirit - just about 2/3rds of the competition period is ahead of us. So let's go Mefites, fix up your bike, and take your shot at a Garmin Edge 705 (desc).
The MetaFilter May Cycling Challenge is on! Also begining May 1st, the 10km Streak competition. (no association with nude bicycle riding implied or intended) [more inside]
MetaFilter cycling is starting to ramp up due to good weather, which has me wondering. Some plans for formal challenge(s) this summer would be good. And, head over to WeEndure and start entering your rides! [more inside]
The Icycle challenge is nearing its end, and so far only 7 riders have scored. Surely we have more hearty soles willing to risk minor appendages for a MetaFilter bike sticker, and glory?

Only 3 days left in the August cycling challenge. Wolfdog still leads JeffL, but an 85 mile lead isn't very big the way those guys are riding.
MetaFilter's August cycling challenge, week 1 standings. When wolfdog puts up his next century, it will all be over.. And, can anybody help me create a chart that dynamically displays the race?
A MeFi bicycling challenge was mentioned here and if it was mentioned in other places as well, I apologize-- I couldn't find it. So, who is up for a bicycling challenge similar to what those wacky runners have going on? I am pretty sure we can use a website such as We Endure or similar to start a group and track our progress. Any takers?
I question the nature of this post.
