    My bike Stats

    I have ridden, taken the bus, or walked to work for a total of approx 10 years...I drove for 21 years.....not to bad, 8 of those years were riding.

    I have been riding for 6 years as of June 16 2005.

    So I have ridden a total of 36398 km.

    I have missed 125 commuting days....or 20 days per year, mostly out of town or medical.

    I have ridden for 1679 days out of the 2190 days available to ride...

    That is a ride 5.36 days of the week....I was targetting riding for 6 days a week.

    That is 21.7 km/day.

    That is 6066 km/y.

    My riding as tapered off a bit in the last year due to some medical issues, but I will get it back.

    Still getting a little faster every year, and learning a little bit more handling skills, the improvements are getting harder to make though.

    Anyway Good Luck to everyone....

    And for Christ's sake becareful out there.

    Congrat Jeff!

    But you forgot the most important stat: Days with temperatures below -20C (or Days with temperatures below -30C for serious points)

    In the spirit of anniversaries, I must have just finished my 5th year of carless commuting (3 years walking, 2 years biking) roughly last week.

    Last year was pretty cold lots below -20c but only one or two below -30C...

    Edmonton is colder that is for sure.

    That's just a nasty myth spread by Calgarians. (in my two years of riding I've luckily only had one -30, and maybe a few more before that when I was walking)

    Wow! For the metric challenged (like me), 36,398 kilometers = 22,617 miles

    You have almost pedaled the circumference of the Earth....

    What is the circumference of the earth?
    The equatorial circumference is about 40,075 kilometers (24901 miles).
    The polar circumference is about 40,008 kilometers (24860 miles).

    I think we had 2 this year one at -36 C...one at -31C.....Edmonton does not get the Chiinooks Calgary gets that is why it is colder.

    Thanks

    1 nautical mile = 1 minute 360* 60 =21600 miles

    1 nautical mile = 1.852 km 21600*1.852=40003.2 km

    1 kilometer = .6213 statute miles 40003.2 * .6213 = 24857 miles...

    ! also sail a little bit.....the difference between the diamters is adjusting for the out of roundness of the globe by scientists.
