The bike commute challenge - status

The Bike Commute Challenge is a wonderful Oregon tradition that Galois has participated in for the past 3 years. This year was a bit disruptive for Galois commuters, because we moved offices from Beaverton to downtown Portland. I think quite a few West-siders haven't yet figured out the best way to get downtown by bike. Nevertheless, we're holding steady at an overall 15% commute rate, with a few folks standing out from the crowd: Sigbjorn Finne at 360 miles and Paul Heinlein at 250 miles.The challenge web site has had a few ups and downs (er, mostly downs), but it seems to be back on-line, so I'm hoping folks are able to log their trips without troubles. One weird thing is I think they're miscomputing the commute rate - it says Paul and Sigbjorn are around 80%, but I'm pretty sure they're both at 100%, so perhaps there are still a few kinks left to work out. (and once they are worked out, I suspect our overall rate will be well-above 15%)Anyone reading this, please commend any of your bike-commuting colleagues, and I'll take this opportunity to thank everyone for participating (Galwegians and everyone else!)
