What is Zero to Century?

A tracker to get you off the couch and cycling 100 miles.

Why did I decide to make Zero to Century?

I have recently started cycling again and am very out of shape. I’ve wanted to ride a century since i was younger and thought this summer would be a great time to get the bike out and train for one. I wanted to build a fun and public way to plan and track my progress as I build up to a full century (100 miles) ride.

How do I plan to make money from Zero to Century?

Users commit to training for a century, enter their credit card, confirm daily they completed their ride. If they miss more than 2 rides per week (more than 2 rest days) or do not complete their century ride on the scheduled date, their credit card is charged via Stripe and the money they pledged goes to me.

Obviously, not everyone will put money up to use this, but for those that want / need the additional motivation it’s a strong motivator to complete their rides.
