Hi Bike Commuters, 
I work for Specialized Bicycles and will be in Chicago next week. 

I'd love to chat with a few bike commuters to better understand the commute scene in the city. 

Anyone willing to meet me and my colleague for coffee on Monday or Tuesday (Sept 25&26), please shoot me a direct message.

In spite of a pretty rough year, I still racked up 2713.6 miles, plus or minus a few miles. :-P

Of those, about 85-90% are commuting miles (the rest are Bike the Drive, the 4-Star Tour, a 73 mile day to Sycamore I'd rather forget, etc.) so I'll call it 2,300 miles even.

I'm at 6,740 miles in 2011. Going for 7,000 before the end of the year. I'm sure Michael A is at 10,000+ miles for the year.

Norm, atta boy on the commuter miles.  Like ambimb, I'm over 4k commuting.  It's a lot of Advil too.  : )

Comment by ambimb on December 4, 2011 at 6:24pm
Good lord, Norm, that's a lot of miles! I was pretty proud of my 4k and counting for the year but I see I have nothing to brag about. Can anyone top 6529 for 2011?
Comment by Norm Hansen on December 4, 2011 at 10:59am

So, um, apparently tomorrow is Bike to Work Day? But not in Chicago? What's up with that?

Just rode the lakeshore trail nortbound from downtown for the first time in a while yesterday--looks like they just finished repaving the December storm damage near North Ave and are set to fix up the stretch up near Fullerton.  Better news for rollerbladers, true, but nice all the same.

I'm slacking. 378.24 miles for the month of April.
