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???

(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....

$100

No special treatment for the gimp without providing me with a special handicap for the days that I have to haul joints around.

1) If you aren't going to specify which "gimp", we can't fix the rules for them. Is that "Ribs", the monopod or the one a pinched neck nerve...
1a) now we need rules for those that work for a living..

Meh, too damn complicated....Maybe we declare winners by a quarter of the year? 4 possible winners and grand champ?

And let's throw in there most miles in a year, all bikes per owner, will need a picture of the odometer. Basically combine all miles ridden for all the bikes owned.

I hope to ride 50 days next year and cover 3000 miles. That makes me dead money. I'm out.

Wasted the 425 miles I rode yesterday i guess.

but i will play in 14.

Probably better for mileage than days ridden

who's collecting the cash?

I'm in. Any SMIB inmate willing to meet me for lunch at Smokey Joe's on my next trip to Pax River can pick up my contribution to the pot (after the holidays). Thanks to the wife's approval of a Gerbing G3 purchase, I'll be on the Tiger.

Welcome Lurker!!! Happy to have you in the event but SMIB's are two doors down on the left. We can work out the cash exchange once we get things tightened up a bit. I'm still in for a buck and I intend on putting down some miles this year so I can work with Marty but if Eric signs up this could be a real problem, even if he has a long winter.

Your money will spend just fine...sign on up.

Are days ridden and miles ridden two different sign ups or will the pot be shared?

After two years in a row of 30k+ miles, my average is probably going to drop a little this year.
