So we basically have one guy who is fully operational, but he is mad scientist like so i'm not sure that counts. Tough place to work apparently.

And it's only about 600 miles to Ottawa so it's easily done in a day, leave in the morning and be up there for dinner.

I actually think I got more ride days in this year than you did. I so should have taken that gentlemen's bet! Maybe a friendly 2014 challenge?

117 days for the year for me...not likey to increase

For 2014, you're on

So what's the bet? something like the person with the least number of days total has the clean and detail the other's bike

Is this going to be a one on one challenge or open to all? validations?
(and no Lance crap...working from home doesn't count as commuting )

Oh I think come one, come all.

My put on the table.

1. Throw you name in the hat NLT 1 Jan 2014
2. You get credit for riding-- Don't care if it's to starbucks on the same street as your house or 200 miles each way to work. Each day is worth 1 point.
3. At the midpoint of the year (julian date Jun 27),post up how many points you currently have.
4. On day 31 Dec, the victor is crowned!

The bike cleaning thing doesn't work when there is a ton of people. Other ideas--memorial trophy... Or Pool entry $$ ??Or rights to name the New Years Day ride? Or???

Rules sound good...I like the pool idea, best way for me to finance future trips

(Clarification : the 117 days is only counting riding to work, wouldn't want you all to start thinking I was slacking)

Edit: Oh yeah, forgot....wherever the hat is, my name is in it....

EOD3MC screwed with this post 12-06-2013 at 08:54 AM Reason: added name to hat

I'm in but I want special dispensation until I have been cleared by the man, so maybe it's based on percentages of riding days possible....game on! All you lurkers can play as well.

I'm betting you will see some 300+ day entries

"why are you riding around the block through 2 feet of snow?"

Because it's the only day the others aren't riding
