The past two years (2001 and 2012) BGI bike commuters have collectively bicycled more than 30,000 miles and 2013 appears to have that in easy reach.

Rob Cline holds the top spot for the year for trips (397 trips) and Johnathan Persinger is leading the group in miles (5,404 miles). September weather was a boost to commuting, with the group hitting 3000 miles in a month for the 3rd time in 2013 (May and June were the other two months).
Now that fall has arrived, we'll see who the die-hard commuters will be.
