    The 2012 Commuting Mileage Thread

    Well, it's the last New Year we'll see if the Maya are correct... I guess we better start tracking our miles while we can...

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

    Quote Originally Posted by swifty View Post

    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.

    For even more fun, you can highlight your name in red (Here's a Link to "HOW TO") and you could even add your state's 2 Letter code after your name to tell us where you are...

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

    John (OH)_______1200
    Mary___________988 (Total 1350)
    Robert (CA)_____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 (OH)_______1200
    Mary___________988 (Total 1350)
    Swifty__________803 (Total 1500)
    Robert (CA)_____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 (OH)_______1200
    Swifty__________1100 (1800)
    Mary___________988 (Total 1350)
    Robert (CA)_____500
    Please don't color your state's code or total miles in blue, I only added the color to show where I edited in changes

    If you want, you can check out the threads from past years: 2009, 2010, 2011

    Have An Even Better 2012!

    In the morning I'll be doing a 16 mile ride.

    (It may be the end of the world as we know it, but I feel fine)

    My first ride of the year was delayed by an hour due to ice in the plastic tube going into the rear derailleur. I had to remove the shift cable, spray the tube out with dubya-d-40, and re-adjust the gears. As I was getting close to home I encountered some of the most slippery ice ever. The studs just didn't want to bite into it.

    One thing I dont understand... why do some people have 0.0 and then miles next to it? I thought the first number was the miles of that ride that you did and the miles in the () are the running total.

    First one is commuting-specific mileage, second is your overall mileage for the year.

    Also digging the adhesion on this thread.

    Ok... So I messed up. I was supposed to do 16 miles today, and I ended up with 40. My Bad.

    Happy New Year Everyone! Now get out there and ride!

    It was a pre-flight ride to make sure the bicycle is up to a 26 mile RT commute. Good thing, too. I needed to replace batteries in my computer and speed sensor and re-pair them.

    Just my ride back from New Years celebration at a friends house nearby so far. Too hung over for anything today! I'm off tomorrow but might get a post-overhaul shakedown cruise in and run a few errands. Tuesday is first day of class which will be just little less than my normal 15-ish mile commute to work. I'm going to have to figure out the differences between the mileage depending on which route I choose to take home, I change it up sometimes. Mines going to be tricky with that, and some days riding just to school, some another mile or so to work in addition.
