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

That's because Chicago is special ;)
Comment by ambimb on May 19, 2011 at 4:55pm
So, um, apparently tomorrow is Bike to Work Day? But not in Chicago? What's up with that?
Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on May 19, 2011 at 2:45pm

Two years since I started to ride to work! Woo-hoo :)

(My first bike parked for the first time after the first ride.)
