    The 2014 Commuting Mileage Thread

    Well, I'm still here (and, of course, "here" is still subject to change w/o notice). Hopefully everybody had a better year than the year before, and a better year still to come.

    So, on with the routine... for those who don't know, 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
    This is a thread where us commuters can log our yearly commuting mileage in. Should be fun!

    To add your mileage (Standard or Statute Mile), 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
    K'Tesh (TW)_____200 (643.74 里) [45/60]


    I want to put in my mileage, so I copy the list above, put in my name plus my current commuting mileage total for this year (Optionally, following that, I'll add parenthesis with my Cumulative Total Miles, or an alternative distance measurement (I use the Chinese Lǐ (里)). You can also put in your commute ratios in brackets... e.g [3/5] is three commutes for five opportunities:

    John (OH)_______1200
    Mary___________988 (Total 1350)
    Swifty__________803 (Total 1500)
    Robert (CA)_____500
    K'Tesh (TW)_____200 (643.74 里) [45/60]

    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
    K'Tesh (TW)_____200 (643.74 里) [45/60]
    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, 2012, and 2013

    Have An Even Better 2014!

    Does this mean we're ocd, anal retentive, fixated, etc? No judgement, I'm all three, and in too!

    I am not going to claim "mileage" for a couple of personal reasons. The biggest one is that due to health issues I found that my average speed became depressing so I removed my cycle computer. Another is that getting on the bike any given day seems like more of an accomplishment than riding it. But also there are likely to be some work interruptions for me this year (my wife is in a family way, so six weeks of family leave, in addition to two weeks of holidays). I'm therefore looking at roughly 44 weeks of work this year. For the sake of sometimes needing a vehicle at work, and sometimes needing to do errands, and the aforementioned health issues, I can't do bike commutes all the time. If I round up one and go for at least two commutes a week, this would be 90 round trips on the bike. So that's my goal. Starting tomorrow.

    Probably the highest I will rank all year... I was on a business trip over the last couple days and left my bike at the office so I could ride it home when I got back today. I upped my commuting distance per day from 7 to 14 miles last fall so if I can keep that up all year I think I can pull off at least 3000 miles.

    Ended up going by the bike shop on my way home to pick up an order, netting an extra 15 miles.

    Had to post early in the year when I get a brief moment at the top.

    As a rule, are you guys posting your actual mileage, or just the direct route mileage. If I add in 6 or 7 bonus kilometers to my ride home just for fun, do I include them?

    Also, I did convert my kilometers to miles before posting them but if we count bonus miles I'm at 46.9 instead of 44 .

    Badly-behaved cyclists are usually just cyclists with inadequate infrastructure. Or none at all. - Mikael Colville-Andersen

    Any information, no matter how good, will always under-represent reality.
