Where is the YACF leaderboard please folks?

I can't find it  :)

Once you've joined the 'YACF' club on Strava. Clubs: YACF
Then in VeloViewer, look for the Leaderboards link at the top of the website. Choose the 'Clubs' tab, select the year, and choose the metric you want to see.
YACF Explorer Score - all time

Hope this makes sense.

Those whose names are in red have given permission for you to see there heatmap and routes - although their Strava privacy still applies.

Although when checking for YACF, I'm 1st for cluster, 2nd for explorer score and 'only' 6th for max square.

You're 1st for Eddington (miles) also, with an impressive 131 miles. I'll be reaching 125 miles soon, but it'll take a long while to build up from there.

Joint 1st I should say. And the other one with 131 miles has an easier target to reach 132.

I'm definitely been in the cluster building phase as I only realy get to improve on extended commutes.

As of last  night I was
23rd in cluster
35th in max square
64th(!) in VV Score (Needs improving this year)

My far points of Ladybank and Haddington are 57 miles apart cycling via the FRB, but a lot closer as the crow flies.

Hmm, Veloviewer says I'm not in any strava clubs, although I am.

"Pick club:  You aren't currently the member of any Strava clubs."

Any idea how I opt into allow veloviewer to see this info?

Veloviewer does have the occasional glitch.  It does know that you are affiliated to YACF as you appear in the YACF leaderboard.

Damn, 45th for total number of tiles. I need to cycle more...

I bagged a couple of tiles on this weekends Brevet, 2 because the route is different this year, and 1 because I went down a dead end quickly.

Today I went out for a ride, did just over 50k, and bagged the last tile I had on the Haarlemermeer. Gone from 5 13x13's, to a single 14x14. Misjudged the temperature massively, and had very very cold feet on the return. Took a while to rewarm everything. Gonna take a lot of effort to bump the square some more.

Playing with the club stats for yacf, I notice it lists me as having a square of 15x15. When I count it on the map, 15x15. When I look on the front page of veloviewer, 14x14. Hmmmm. Seems I've got a better square than I thought! Win.

I've just checked my club stats on veloviewer. I'm way down the yacf rankings for overall distance (both yearly and all-time), tiles, max cluster and max square, but somehow in the top 10 for veloviewer score, which probably counts for something... though I'm not sure what exactly.

Have been doing a lot of short potters into the Firth of Forth and the Eden Estuary, going out on beaches, breakwaters and a tidal causeway this morning to Cramond Island (Bike will need a drivetrain clean at lunchtime and a full clean tonight to recover from that), so have only upped my cluster from 662 at the start of the year to 667 (glad to move off 666 where I'd been stuck for a week) , but will reap the benefits later in the year when I start on longer bike rides.

Added ~40 to my cluster (461) with a good 60km ride in the Chilterns.  edit.  Reminded myself gmaps streetview is not necessarily up to date - thought it was strange, because I was sure I had checked.  It was supposed to be a quick 100m off the B-road, but farm road now turned out to have an electric gate installed.  So I found a bridleway further down to bag the tile - further in to go though.

Increasing the square is slowly getting harder. Today I finally managed to go from 33x33 to 34x34. Quite a few rides needed before I can jump to 35x35



The cluster increase is easier, I'm at 3448 now.

I had planned on tile hunting on todays 200 from Zwolle, but at CP2 I met a young couple on their first ever Audax, who were struggling in the wind, so I kept them company and guided them home (with 1 hour in hand!). I scrapped all my tile hunting plans. Just means I'll have to go ride some more around the Veluwe... tragic...

I did add a load of tiles, just none in a particularly structured way, total tile count now up to 5912.

I was thinking that some of the people I have contact with on Strava must think I'm a pretty poor navigator with the number of dead-end, short 'spur' sections that go into some of my rides...   ;)

Crazy weather here this week, I've done 2 rides now in shorts, one in shorts + jersey. It gets bloomin' cold when the sun goes down tho. But with good weather, I took the chance to head to the Veluwe to see if I could work out a way of bagging the tiles there that are going to block everything. Turns out, no, no I can't. There's 4 tiles that I can't see a way to access. Some people claim that the area is open to the public occasionally, but I'm struggling to find info. On the plus side, 29 extra tiles, and I now have a mini cluster from Arnhem to Apeldoorn...

How long do we give telstarbox, before sending out a search party?
