Miles to date 2008: 0
I'm replacing stem, brake levers and cables, shifters and cables, front derailleur, cranks. So my bike is hanging on the repair stand.

I finished with around 2400 on the road bike and another 1000 or so on commuter (I don't really know about the commuter I don't have a computer on it). Much better than last year. Hopefully I will get a lot more next year, lots of new roads to explore in a new state!

I somehow managed 1723 for 2007. I definitely fell short of my 2000 mile goal, but not worries. Feels good to end a year with a high number, and ramp up to really kick some tail in '08!

Hit around 2200 for 2007, 2900 for 2006, 954 for 2005 and 2400-something for 2004.
2005 was the year my wife had all kinds of health issues,
I'm hoping to exceed 2200 this year.

Total for me for 2007 was 5,160 miles. (2006 was 3,022 miles)

My planned mileage for 2008 is 8,000 miles. One week in, and I'm at 112.6. At that pace, I'd only ride about 6,000 miles this year, but it *is* winter - I'm hoping to pick that pace up in the summer months when I start riding centuries again.

It helps that I no longer own a car. Not bad for a guy who weighs 245, though.

Oh, and I finally got a 36 spoke handbuilt back wheel, so hopefully no more broken spokes.

2007 Mileage total

I wound up with 1813 with the club and 1246 non club.
Not bad considering I was out of commish 3x last season.
Hoping for a 3k club season this year.. hoping.

Finished 2007 just shy of 3000 miles, though I don't know the exact total. My original goal for 07 was 2000. Strangely enough I'm only upping my goal mileage to 2500 as I'm going to start swimming and running regularly which will affect saddle time.
