    The 2011 Commuting Days & Mileage Thread

    Ok, we’re 5 days in and still no 2011 mileage thread so if I can be so humble to do the honors and kick this year off…?

    Towards the end of the 2010 thread BrianMc did a great summary of total mileage, fuel & dollars saved. I’m not one to host New Year’s resolutions however, my personal goal is to double my commuting days from last year perhaps some of you can do the same. I’ll be curious to BrianMc’s report by the year end and hopefully we can continue to keep track and increase in future years.

    Without further adieu…

    Commuter Days: 2
    Commuter Miles: 15.2
    Dirt Miles: 0
    Total Miles: 15.2


    PS – if anything needs to be changed in the reporting process, speak up so we can all follow suit.

    Happy New 'Commuting' Year to all!

    New Years resolutions?...what about this:
    A Perfect Year as a commuter, day that I have to go to work, day that I am going to be riding it. That's my main goal this year. I'll post about it tonight on my blog.. (well, already posted in spanish)

    Do trainer miles in the basement count towards "recreation" miles? I want to keep a more accurate log of miles ridden this year.

    I suppose if the weather wasn't so nice and you couldn't get out and rode the trainer instead the miles could carry over. If you are just using it as a exercise bike, I would say no.

    I think of tracking mileage & days commuitng (and offroad) as ground covered. It's never about the fitness factor for me as much as is the principal itself.

    My Cross Check is on the trainer. Look out the window, she's not going out to play.

    That's what I was thinking. Ground miles only...

    I think you could track them for your personal file, but if you were talking about the greenlight "recreation" tag, I would say no...ground miles only.

    As far as the Greenlight team, the new and only rule would be: No trainer miles on our Team!
    People are doing it on greenlight, but a commuter is not supposed to ride on a trainer to get to work right? let's keep our miles ground covered only.

    Not in the literal sense . We Clydesdale's DO NOT run !

    Maybe I should have used the term 'recreational bike ride' .


    It was just a casual ride after being off the bike for a month. I put my Hakkapeliitta W240 studded tires and Slime super thick inner-tubes on (Talk about being heavy!).

    That's a nice bike! Quick question. Does it smell like Chocolate all year round in Hershey, PA? Went there on a cycle tour once and the whole place smelled like Chocolate. Hope people don't ask you that too often.
