Compare miles
« on: October 21, 2010, 05:08:50 PM »
I had an idea today as I was riding to work.How about a thread for us to post daily/weekly how many miles we put on our bikes namely mountain bikes.I of course think I have everyone beat but still think its a great way to spark conversation and get people to ride more as motivation. ;D

It is free for basic, and 20 bucks for the full blown deal.

I checked my odometer yesterday.  Got my Rush in April, I think.  Then got the odometer.  967 since April.  Not including any road miles.  Guess I should start keeping track, eh?

That is great. It is very motivating. I have been using it for almost 4 years...each year I try to increase time on the bike, that of course results in miles.
 
year one 3167
year two 4803
year 3    5512
 
so far this year 5146
 
 
it is addictive.....the whole damned thing....

That is quite impressive. Not so much the mileage, but the ability/free time to accomplish said miles. I'm jealous.

I work for myself, out of the house, so I do have a lot of flexibility.
