    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.

    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 manuallyÖ

    Woops! Forgot about this. I have another week of rides to upload. Too bad they donít count the altitude as Strava does, Iíve done 32,000+ feet since March 1.

    OK, just added a bunch of rides from late February up to today. Once again, too bad all that altitude doesnít matter for the Greenlightrides dealie.

    Holy climbing Leo - and on a singlespeed My ride home is usually short (3.5 mi) but goes up 1000' so I have the same feeling about the mileage not really capturing the effort.

    Not all my doing (by a long shot) but compared my log versus the record and had missed a ride plus I recorded the 1-way distance. Fixed now. Difference was only about the same as a single ride by the leaders! Well, every little bit counts, right?

    If any of you are over 6' (or 200 lbs (say 1.83 m or 89 kg) you qualify as Clydes and the 2011 challenge is 50,000 miles, and we are a bit off the pace to meet that, so if you are, please add your miles (all miles count even stationary trainer miles). Thanks.

    I don't view myself as a clyde, but I fit the description and I'll be able to chip in a couple thousand by the year end.

    I want to get in the top seven here, but people keep cranking out the mileage. What a bunch of *******s.

    I may be wrong but I think the last 3 spots are going to be changing later for sure (not to mention if someone like Leo shows up and take one place easily )...

    I'm struggling with my streak already and that is what is putting my miles so high, and I'm just 6th...I've never been a high miler...my longest rides before the 40mi race this year were about 20 mi long and those were like 2 or 3 per year...all that before this year of races...going for the 4th in two weeks btw.

    I think I'm going to try some different routes for a change, may be some longer ones to force me to add some speed...the rush I had today was great.

    Actually the bike started life (when I purchased it) as a singlespeed, but I have been running a Shimano Alfine 8-speed internally-geared hub since about May of 2010... but I donít necessarily have the ideal bottom gear ratio for a lot of those climbs. Also take into consideration the 65mm wide wheels, the 3" wide tires, and the internally-geared hub weigh quite a lot (the entire rear wheel/tube/tire/hub/spokes/etc. is just a tad shy of 9 pounds). I am riding two bikes worth of weight.

    I have to admit I'm definitely motivated to get into the top seven scoring riders slot !

    I guess I need to volunteer for work in the next town, if I'm to see the top seven list!

    Thanks umarth for posting on the Clydes site. A borderline Clyde myself and almost fell through the weight limit last September, but once again, my winter waist-land has had its weigh!

    I'm 6'-1" but only 180lbs. Does that qualify as a Clyde (I don't feel like a Clyde)? I'd post my miles over there if it does.

    The Clydesdale forum sets the standard at weight over 200 lbs OR height over 6'. So you make it with an inch to spare. I have lost some height to spine compression so make it on weight alone, now. So if I can get down to your weight (mine at age 21) I'll no longer qualify.

    Sorry my Commute is 27 miles 28-30 if I stop at the bank or Store on the way home.
    I'm not even close to a Clydesdale (143) but I'm old enough for AARP (I'll be 55 in July)
    About 95% of my Riding back and forth to work is on a Fixed gear Bike
    95% of my Mountain biking is on a Single Speed.100% Rigid.

    umarth my apologies too. My commute is 36 miles and I try to do it just about every day of the week when I can. The miles add up fast. Between commuting and mountain biking last year I came in right at 7000 miles. Hoping to do the same this year.

    (Oh yeah, old guy too, turned 50 last year).

    You guys are going to get the wrath of umarth soon. I promise!

    Right now though... not so much. The headwinds have been atrocious, so no long rides for me.

    But when it fades, you guys are screwed.

    Someone on the reserves should start a second team to give you guys a run for your money. The second place team isn't that close in points, and it's the spirt of the competition. :-) Not trying to start anything or trolling.

    Added latest 2 commutes and noticed my total does not match my spreadsheet or what I have in the commuting days thread. A calculator addition of what is in my table matches my Excel sheet. Off by 8.5 miles and that is not matching any ride. Anyone else see a totaling error? Reports 116 not 124.5 (should round to 125).
