    Is this achievement tracking for anyone? Mine still says 0%

    Which achievement? No tracking does not mean it's glitched.

    It's 40K km not 40km, hence around the world (Earth's circumference).

    It looks like it would take AT LEAST 3000 hours, possibly less, possibly more.

    Damn.. that is insane! Guess the first completion will be awarded to the one that is willing to pay the most for the electricity to do this massive grind! :')

    The achievement states '40.075 km'. Not sure if that's 40km or as you're suggesting? Do you have any tracking on it at all?

    40000km?! Wow that's insane, I was considering buying this game but not if it takes that long to complete

    So far I assume it is actally 40k kilometer. I've been playing this game for a good 15/20 hours already and my tracker is still at 0% facepalm

    Also, if it was 'just' 40 kilometer, I should have seen at least a few percent as I unlocked the 1 kilometer total grind achievement.

    I'm not sure how fast you can skate but even to go up 1% will be 400km (about 250 miles). So even for 20 hours, you'd need to be skating at 20kph non stop just to go up 1%. This could be the most ridiculous achievement ever.

    Bad news, after around 20 hours of playing the game, I finally reached 1% on the tracker. Guess it is really 40k kilometers :(

    The achievement works fine. I do love the occasional non-multiplayer grind.

    Do you guys think it would be possible to AFK this?

    That's my plan, I've just rubber banded my X button down the long ramp on Downtown LA and crash into the bus to start back on the top.

    I know the ramp is around 200m cause when I did the 1km grinding I would grind down the side and that would give me around 100m towards that achievement before I had to pop off and I barely made it halfway down.

    I'm not bright so if I have done math wrong that is my mistake and feel free to correct me.

    Each ride down and crash into the bus takes around 21 seconds. Converting the km to m says that this will take 40,075,000 meters or doing my plan 200,375 times. Which would equal at least 4,207,875 seconds/1168 hours/46 days
    let's start anew, and keep that percentage high so my backlog doesn't keep me down.

    There's also the issue where sometimes I don't crash riding into the bus so my character just starts skating back up the ramp.

    Well, at least someone got it to track. Very silly to make this achievement as long as it is given the rest were done in an hour or two.

    I put it in the guide for this achievement just so more people are aware of it.. LET THE GRIND BEGIN (no pun intended)

    Take a look at Skater XL (@skater_xl): https://twitter.com/skater_xl?s=09

    Here's there twitter if anyone wants it 😅. But yeah, I'm fine with Grindy achievements but this one is a bit too extreme imo

    Is going down the hill into the bus faster than going down the hill in big ramp at an angle and crashing into the invisible wall?

    I'm going to AFK until I get 1% to appear. Then I know it works and it's just asshattery at its finest!

    If that is faster that would be amazing. If you want to test that and see how long it takes you that would be good to know. I know I am at 1% now doing what I stated and it took about 12 hours to get to that percent. If you gain more speed doing that than the ramp in LA it could possibly be faster, but also have to think about how long the hill is.
    let's start anew, and keep that percentage high so my backlog doesn't keep me down.
