2006, a new personal best

A new record for me, Mother Nature worked her magic in 2006 and its the first year that I biked every day...365 days on a bike

Just under 17,000km

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.

Here's a 2007 Mileage chart to help keep track of your 2007 miles/kilometers. I used it last year and thanks to members Wulfheir, thdave and chipcom the 2007 Excel program can be download here: http://www.chipcom.net/docs/2007_com...leageChart.xls (found on Commuting forum)

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.
