EricinIkebukuro asked for ideas....
If there are any other ideas ...
Since today was payday, here's my challenge:
I will donate ¥2 to the red cross for every meter of climbing any TCC person does this weekend.** (conditions follow)
If one of you goes out and does a thousand meters, that'll be a ¥2000 donation. If three TCC people do that same ride together, it'll be ¥6000. And so on.
And hey, the weather's looking great (over there..., not here ), so this offer is valid for rides done both tomorrow, the 26th, and Sunday, the 27th. Going out both days is fine, and/or ride thru Saturday night if you want.
I'd appreciate it if you'd post your garmin data below--either as one of their activities or via ridewithgps or some similar site. Embed your maps if you want, but please also summarize what climbing you did so it'll be easier for me to total up. Sorry, but formal events are disqualified (if there's an audax this weekend, that won't count). Multiple TCC'ers on the same ride only need to report/post once--I'll trust that you went together--just tell me what other TCC people went along.
Also, please count only riders who are registered members of this board as of the time of this post. E.g., a half-fast ride (rides) will count (not an official event), but (Mike?) please only count riders who are signed up here.
**Sorry, but you people often shock and awe me with your elevation numbers. So, my basic max donation in the name of "climbing for Tohoku" will be ¥20,000--or 10,000 meters of climbing. However, meet the basic goal and there'll be a bit of a kicker. If you folks do meet and surpass (even just a little bit) that 10k meters of climbing, I'll tack on another ¥10,000 bonus for a max donation of ¥30k.
