Walking/riding challenge - Sydney to Perth

Postby Garfield » Thu Aug 24, 2006 7:47 pm

I saw this on another forum and thought it would be a fun thing to do. The idea is that we all combine the distance we walk or ride in order to go a certain distance. I thought Sydney to Perth would be cool, which is 3912km by road apparently.
What do you think, wanna join me?

A mile converts to 1.6 km I think... correct me if I'm wrong. That would bring our total down from 3910
to 3908.4 km to go.

Don't worry grug, I live in Canberra lol. It doesn't really matter where you say you're going from or to, it's just a way to get a really long distance as a goal.

I'm so embarrassed... after starting this I realise I won't have time for any serious exercise for a few days :oops: I won't be able to take any kms off for a while.

Alright I want in on this one.

I am going to do it though by the kms I do on the cross trainer as I go in it fairly regularly during the week and if I don't then this gives me incentive to jump on. It is at the gym though so is determined by how often I get there. Anyways the thing tells me how many kms I do and as I don't know the kms walking to and from the gym so I will leave at that.

OK Sarah I will work out the kms to Perth from Melbourne to help with confuzzledness. Be back soon with info.

When we did this with eDiets we did it from one spot in the USA to another spot in the USA (even though I lived in Perth) So it doesn't matter where we live, we just still make the journey from Sydney to Perth. and just take off the amount we wallked from the last total shown by the person before us.

3908.4
minus my 1km = 3907.4 to go

OK sorry had a brain lapse. Now I see what your getting at, it is total combined so we just deduct our kms from the last count.

I am gonna do my kms on whatever machine I use as well as any walks where I can determine the kms. Whereis.com.au tells me it is 1.23 kms from office to the gym so I will add that too.

Therefore, 2.46 walking and 3.7 cross trainer total 6.16 kms

3907.4 kms

- 6.16

3901.24 kms to go
