Smile The 2013 Mileage Challenge

Well, it looks like the Maya were not correct... I'm still here (of course, "here" is subject to change). Hopefully everybody had a better year than the year before, and a better year still to come.

So, on with the routine... for those who don't know, here's the way it's done (based completely on swifty's idea (from bikeforums.net), and modifications appearing in BLUE):

To add your mileage, just copy the list from the previous post and add your name and mileage at the appropriate line in the list. To update your mileage, cut your name and mileage line, and paste it at the new location according to your new mileage total.

For even more fun, you can highlight your name in red (Here's a Link to "HOW TO") and you could even add your state's 2 Letter code after your name to tell us where you are...

example: Let's assume the list is as follows:

John (OH)_______1200
Mary___________988 (Total 1350)
Robert (CA)_____500


I want to put in my mileage, so I copy the list above, put in my name plus my current commuting mileage total for this year (Optionally, following that, I'll add parenthesis with my Cumulative Total Miles, or an alternative distance measurement (I use the Chinese Lǐ (里)):

John (OH)_______1200
Mary___________988 (Total 1350)
Swifty__________803 (Total 1500)
Robert (CA)_____500

A week later I want to update my mileage, So I copy over the list from the most recent post, and adjust the mileage behind my name. As my mileage has become greater that the mileage of the person above me in the list, I cut and paste my name to represent the changed standings:

John (OH)_______1200
Swifty__________1100 (1800)
Mary___________988 (Total 1350)
Robert (CA)_____500
Please don't color your state's code or total miles in blue, I only added the color to show where I edited in changes

If you want, you can check out the threads from past years: 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012

Have An Even Better 2013!
