    Hey y'all! i figured i would start a new thread for the miles this year... A lot of folks started last year, but slowly trickled out throughout the year... I found it to be fun & interesting to see how it all went down through the year, but I dont wanna be the only one going HEY LOOK AT ME I RIDE MY BIKE A LOT! That's just silly. So if anyone else is interested in keeping a log with me this year please chime in... if no one does i will delete the thread so its not just dead & sitting here.

    Same as last year, I'm splitting into two groups, fun & commute. Fun is stuff I want to do, commute is stuff I have to do. But feel free to split it up, or not, into whatever you want. Here is a link to last years thread if you wanna see how it all went down... http://sdbikecommuter.com/forums/comments.php?DiscussionID=500&page=4#Item_47

    I'd like to give this a shot this year but don't know if I can/will be religious about it. I will definitely have more fun miles this year than commute as my commute is short.
    As of 1/2:

    Fun: 12.1
    Commute: 5.8

    awesome! i'm glad others are on board! remember, its not meant to be meticulous and laborious... i only update about once a week, and i do not calculate the exact milage (no fancy cyclo meter, just google maps)... but just a general number so that each of us can track our progress through the year.

    @ lisi... i am jealous! i can not wait to find a new job closer to home so that i can flip the numbers this year to more fun!

    I'm going to give this another try in 2012.

    New Year's Day - 7 mile workout on the velodrome followed by Margaritas and croquet. Too warm this year for Bloody Marys.

    Taco Tuesday was fun and got some good miles in.

    Fun : 18.3
    Commute : 17.6

    Hoping I can get more fun miles in this year. After a lot of weekend "commute" errand running and pack hauling 12/31, started the new year off the bike for 2 days, so 1/3/12 started my year:

    Commute: 10

    I'll try to keep it up this year. Last year I lost track after my computer crapped out and then never caught up.

    Three days of commuting this week at 25 miles each roundtrip.

    Sensing a pattern here? Guess I'll switch to weekly reporting next week.

    Question is, where do I classify my weekend shopping/errand running miles?

    VirtualRoadKillAli:Question is, where do I classify my weekend shopping/errand running miles?

    A: anywhere you feel appropriate... i keep it simple, anything i have to do = commute, anything i want to do = fun. but you can do it any way you want... even add another category for errands & such or whatever else you feel like. no real rules here cept to keep track & enjoy!

    i keep it simple, anything i have to do = commute, anything i want to do = fun.

    While I can't say biking to 3 grocery stores and the gym in Saturday shopping traffic is exactly my idea of entertainment, I will be classifying weekend errands in "fun" riding. After all, I don't "have to" be at the gym at 7am Saturday morning....or pickup the best deals at both Sprouts and Barons in one day!

    That being said, 1/5 is :

    Commute: 10

    1/7 was a Saturday overtime session followed by grocery shopping. Since the ride home was pleasant, daytime, deadline-free and allowed me to find a new shortcut to my favorite local market (all characteristics absent from my weekday commutes), I'm calling it
