All trips had to be logged on the Endomondo Sports Tracker website where live results on the progress of the challenge could be viewed, providing significantly more interest and excitement than the results round of the Eurovision Song Contest!
Trips could be recorded and uploaded to website via the free downloadable Endomondo Sports Tracker app for smart phones or from a Garmin GPS, or by manually importing a GPX file. I suddenly discovered a competitive nature that I never knew I had, but this competition was based on logging miles where the bicycle was secondary to the purpose of the journey, so while commuting and shopping were fine, miles clocked up on fast club runs were not allowed! As GPS tracks for trips of longer than 10 miles were required to be made available on the Endomondo site for public viewing, any attempts to bend the rules could be contested.
