    The 2010 mileage thread

    The 2010 mileage thread

    I had a lot of fun in 2009 with the mileage thread, and I was surprised that the idea hadn't been carried forward yet. But it wasn't, and I want to get started for 2010 (I've got a lot of miles to get going on if I want to beat 2009).

    So, with that, here's the way it's done (based completly on swifty's idea, with my modifications appearing in BLUE):

    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 (Total 1350)
    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 (Total 1350)
    Swifty_______803 (Total 1500)
    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 (1800)
    Mary________988 (Total 1350)
    Robert_______500


    Please don't color your total miles in blue, I only added the color to show where I edited in changes

    Have a Fun, Safe, and Profitable 2010!

    Dude, it's only Jan. 1! I bet a lot of people didn't even have to commute today. I didn't. Well I am leaving in about a half hour, but that's for tomorrow's midnight shift.

    Bah, first commute day of the year and we got snowed in. Was planning to do 30+ miles, but I ended up taking the train instead (multi-modal commute). The studs handled great in the snow, so the bike wasn't the problem. I was more worried about sharing the road with cars which were sliding all over the place.

    Edit: I just asked Tom if he could please make this thread a sticky.

    I use a spreadsheet generally (http://www.pankin.com/miles.htm), both last year and now this, but I like the worldcommute.com site idea. I've registered there and will be tracking miles there, too. Thanks for sharing.

    +1 on making this a sticky, though I assume that's largely a formality at this point given the success of the 2009 thread.

    It's been dissapointing lately. I did only a quarter of the commute on bike the last two days because of heavier lake-effect snow that wasn't cleaned coupled with auto traffic concerns. I'm grateful that at least the last quarter is relatively safe, and serves as a continued "testing ground" for getting better at riding on snow and ice. I probably should have run at low pressure today to get more traction, but by the time I realized that I had about a half-mile left so I didn't bother. My first commute of the year was full though, and my coldest yet at around -10 F windchill, so that bit of "growth" in my ability is exciting.

    I've done two 15 mile rides over the long weekend, but those weren't exactly "commuting". My work ride is 3.8 miles each way, so 7.6 miles per day, 5 days per week. Yesterday I did all my errands by bike and enjoyed the odd sunny day. Does that count as commuting, or is this a strictly "work and back home" mileage count?

    Commuting involves any mileage that is not recreational, IMO. So, yeah, errands count. But I don't consider anything below 2 miles though. Thats just me.

    This will be the only time I'll (probably) be on the top of the list. Might as well take advantage of the opportunity

    Or it will be by the time I make it home tonight, anyway. I usually just do this every few weeks (and will be, going forward), but it seemed fitting to ring in the new year to post my first day commuting. Happy 2010 everyone! First 14 miles on my way to 3000+ commuting miles this year!

    If I take the long way home to get in a longer ride (thus combining my commute with a training ride) do I report the total miles for that ride, or just what I would have ridden had I done the regular ride home?

    I'm also going to be tracking on WorldCommute (as long as I remember to do so, anyway). Unfortunately, my cycling computer refuses to track miles in winter temperatures, so I'll be estimating based on routes constructed on http://routebuilder.org/ . At least until the weather starts warming up.

    You should have formatting options above your reply. Try the following:

    See the A with the up and down arrows just below Quick reply, left click on that after you have highlighted your name and millage then select the red box from the menue that pops down. To get rid of the red, select black.
