    Here I thought that I was doing well getting in at least one ride every month. Sigh!

    Nice job. I've already missed one day this year due to weather.

    Great going! I've never heard of anyone ever doing that.
    My wife says I'm obsessed. I only rode about 150 days. If I rode everyday I suspect I'd be sleeping with my trike!

    Nice! The best streak I could attain in 2006 was 105 days in a row.

    That's a record to be proud of. I know I'll never meet that. Way to go.
    (I guess the only way to top that is to ride every day on leap year. )

    You are an inspiration.
    Let me venture a guess - 25 km commute plus 2 metric centuries on the weekend?

    Keep it up and good luck breaking your PR in 2007, it's predicted to be the hottest year yet.

    I find the feat of riding every day in a year to be incredible, especially in Canada. I'm too sick to ride at least a couple of days a year. I rode 3 out of every 4 (270 days) and I thought that was pretty good. I'll go sit in a corner and console myself, now.
