    Hey.... gmule how long did it take?

    You can shoot next for the circumference of the earth. I don't keep track of what type of miles I have. Just the entire bucket and I am almost there.

    Congrats! You should be proud of that number.

    Congrats! I have no idea at this point how many commuting miles I've done- started at age 16 (38 years ago) I'd guess no less than 3000 commuting miles per year (low estimate), which would mean at least 114,000 miles going back and forth to jobs- yikes!

    That is a great idea 24,901.55 miles so I have 14901.55 to go


    It is actually a few more than 10K I started riding in April of 2006 riding my Mountain bike. Then about a month later I found this place and learned a buch of stuff. By November of 2006 I bought my road bike for commuting and the miles on the road bike are the ones I started tracking. So I think it took me about 2 years and 3 months. now for the parts I have worn out.

    3 sets of tires a few tubes 4 chains one Cassette and a set of brakes. I had one crash but that was early on riding my mountain bike. Oh and the biggest acheivment of all was losing 55 lbs which is why I started riding in the first place.

    my commute is 30 miles a day.

    Congratulations! My five bikes have computers. Concerning mileage I feel a bit like an
    odd duck. I'm quietly proud no matter how many miles my bikes have, I can take
    any one out and it will be clean, run quiet,smooth and no mechanical hiccups.
    When I got through a learning curve of doing maintenance(labor of love)
    the effort still goes into it, but it doesn't take that long.
    Ride like a teen machine
