    wohoo

    So last february i started really commuting year round. what started as a few joy rides to work turned into a passion for riding. I set the goal then to hit 1200 miles this year. I thought that the goal should be attainable no batter what the year threw at me. Turns out I need almost every single day of 2012 to hit that goal.

    some highlights

    - figuring out that i could take my bike on the train with me to school so i didnt have to sit in traffic for 2 hours a night.
    - figuring out that the 22 mile ride back to my car in the train parking lot was faster than waiting the 45 minutes for the train to arrive!
    -I broke my foot in june just after finishing school for the year so I thought I was not going to be able to get to my mileage goal. however as soon as i got the ok to walk i was riding before the cast was even off. which of course resulted in me breaking a cam walker which i guess is rare.
    - finally this morning looking down to see my gps roll over to 1200 miles of commuting.

    Planing to double it for 2013. Happy new year people!

    Congratulations, sounds like a great year (except for the foot). Share some photos of your commute in the new year.

    Nearly a week to spare? No problem!

    Good job, 610 . And good luck with next year`s higher bar.
    BTW, what`s a cam walker? Hope it wasn`t part of you.
    Recalculating....

    Great job! 1200 was my mileage in 2009, my first year on the bike after a long break. It's only increased from there.
