I'm getting there...

Ok so my 2005 goal is to put more miles on my bikes than on my car. So far it has been a loosing battle due to weather but now that it is getting nicer here I am clearly making some headway. In January I drove 350 miles and rode (including trainer miles) 158 miles. February dropped the car to 254 miles but the bike also dropped to 147. March had me down on the car miles again to 204 miles and the bike was back up a bit to 160 miles. So on the year I have 808 miles on my car and 468 miles on my bikes. In April I predict that the bikes will have more miles and I also predict that I wont buy a tank of gas for the car.

Can't wait to see those miles pass each other.

that's an awesome goal... I don't even have a car, but I suppose if I ever do get the notion to get one it will accumulate far less miles than my bike does. I've done right at 1600 miles since Nov 22, most of which has been commuting to and from work. I guess that works out to about 400 miles a month?
