The 2009 commuting mileage thread

This is a thread where us commuters can log our yearly commuting mileage in. Should be fun!

To add your mileage, just copy the list from the previous post and add your name and mileage at the appropriate line in the list. To update your mileage, cut your name and mileage line, and paste it at the new location according to your new mileage total.

example: Let's assume the list is as follows:

John________1200
Mary________988
Robert_______500


I want to put in my mileage, so I copy the list above, and put in my name plus my current mileage total for this year:

John________1200
Mary________988
Swifty_______803
Robert_______500

A week later I want to update my mileage, So I copy over the list from the most recent post, and adjust the mileage behind my name. As my mileage has become greater that the mileage of the person above me in the list, I cut and paste my name to represent the changed standings:

John________1200
Swifty_______1100
Mary________988
Robert_______500

Total miles or just commuting miles?

Kind of late starting it, aren't we? We're 3 months into the year!

I'm not really into continually tracking miles, so I'll post here Jan 1 2010 with year's total.

I've been tracking my miles on GreenlightRide.com. Not that this remark adds any value at all to this thread. But you don't have to be on a team to track your miles there.

That's it Tarwheel, thanks! Who's next?

NOTE: As much as I love to read about all options to log one's miles, please everybody try to refrain from posting anything on this thread apart from your commuting miles. It will otherwise be hard for people to keep track of the latest mileage list, having to scroll through all the superfluous posts.

Let's see, so far this year I've logged 2027km which is 1259 miles. About 90% of those were commuting, so about 1133.

So, Swifty, does riding to a group ride count as a commute if you would have otherwise driven?

EDIT: Not sure what i did for my first post?? It should have been 737.78 miles not 708.08 and then this week 178.79 miles, so now I have 916.57.
