In this case, 'metric' is short for 'metric century' (100 km). The Polar Bear ride is an annual tradition that raises money for a cancer patient support organization. http://gopolar.org/
My group took a shortcut in one place because the temperature was beginning to drop and the wind was picking up, so we only logged about 60 miles, not the full 100 km. It was still a good ride but I could sure tell I hadn't done anything longer than about 30 miles since October. I was glad when we finished. A bowl of chili never tasted so good before!
