Me after reaching The first pitstop on the Seagull CenturyAs the year 2007 started, I decided to keep a log of how many miles I biked on each day of the year. At first it was just a curiousity, but as time went by it was pretty incredible how many miles were starting to add up. In total, I biked 2,500 miles last year -- which, for me, is a record. I'm continuing to log my mileage, although starting this year I've decided to do it on this site. In the (hopefully) not too distant future you'll be able to see some live statistics on my mileage using the Mileage Tracker link above.

Until then, here are some interesting facts about my 2007:

In all 58% of all weekdays were biked when accounting for an average holiday load. Part of the reason for this low number is that I frequently had air-travel on Mondays and Fridays. All in all it was a productive year, mileage wise and so far this year I'm on pace to beat it.

One thing to leave you with -- at the end of last year I decided to dress up my bike in the spirit of the season with some battery operated lights. The quality isn't the best (this was taken with a cell phone camera) but you'll get the point.
