Commuter Challenge Starts Tomorrow

The timing is perfect considering Bridge's news.  

I've decided to rename this slightly to the commuter challenge vs the commuter race.  I would like this to be as much of a cummunity effort as it is a friendly competition.  Of course the guys at C-ville Bike and Tri are talking all kinds of trash but we'll see what happens when it's time for the rubber to meet the road.  

Trash talking aside I would like to see how many miles a small group of commuters can actually rack up with a single concerted effort.  

You will need to quickly register with me to start getting your miles counted...I'll post all of the details tomorrow.  

If anyone is interested in making a flyer for the event let me know and I can send you the details.  I think we'll run a monthly challenge through the end of the year.

james, I'll register. I have a spare cyclometer I can put on my commuter bike (even though I'm fundamentally against the devices these days.. I'd rather NOT know how many miles i rack up.)

Do you feel that we can count our miles by google mapping or mapmyride our routes for the day? Can there also be constituents from RVa?

I think the RIC should definitely contribute. Mapping the rides might get pretty tedious, but you can do it. Bridge, If you need a computer I am sure I've got something in my basement you can use.
