    MTBR Forums Commuters Official non Official Team, Join us!

    I know I haven't been the perfect example of a committed commuter this year but I'm fully aware of what I'm doing and the commitment involved by doing this:

    As posted on the "2010 commuting days and mileage thread" I created a Team in the site:
    http://greenlightride.com/
    called:
    MTBR Forums Commuters

    Such a thing comes from the idea of tracking our miles in a more organized way for 2011..using this site, adding miles, trips, types of rides (work, recreation or errands) are going to be done automatically.

    Entering your trip info is not difficult, rides can be saved as a round trip or as an one way trip...and you can save trips so you are able to do it even faster...See "My Rides"

    MTBR Forums Commuters Official non Official Team, Join us!-glr-tracking.jpg

    If you like tracking your miles doing this won't represent a lot of work

    How to join?

    1. Join greenride.com at http://greenlightride.com/ (if you haven't)
    2. Join the Team at http://greenlightride.com/team/view_team/914/

    MTBR Forums Commuters Official non Official Team, Join us!-glr-join.jpg

    3. Done!

    You won't need to do more than join greenlight, join the team and track your miles and trips on your personal page!

    High miler Normbilt already joined the team

    Join and let's count our miles properly!


    There will be a "2011 commuting days and mileage thread" on our forum of course!
    but now we are going to be able to track more data from the commuters!
    Bringing info from any rider will be easy!

    The new and only rule: No trainer miles on our Team!
    Let's keep our miles ground covered only.

    cool idea. I signed up. I've been car-free since September 21, 2010. Been commuting a LOT! This year planning on upping the ante from 1-3 days a week to 3-5 days a week.

    Are people putting recreational miles in there too for MTB rides? Or is this strictly commute/errand miles only?

    Back when I had a job, I had managed to rack up 7,200 miles riding my bike to/from work from 2008 to 2009. Now that I am unemployed, I do not commute. Most unfortunate.

    You can track other mileage until you find a job.

    I just applied.

    Cool site, I just signed up. I don't get many commuting miles in, but maybe this will help me do more!

    I need a little self motivation:

    I'm going to move into the top seven of scoring; which means I need to double my cycling miles !

    Ummkay, I am joined up now. Ready to upload some miles. Would be nice to just be able to upload my Garmin GPS .tcx files rather than log each one manually…
