Well, hopefully, nobody’s looking at their numbers too closely. As it turns out, the usage of their log is pretty poor. While they don’t normally report details, they DID proudly trumpet them for the 2008 and 2009 “National Bike to Work Day.” The results, IMO, speak for themselves, and they might explain why they don't summarize any results for the 2010 Bike to Work Day.

As you may see, in a metropolitan area of well over six million people, yours truly, all by himself, represented 5% of the total bicycle commute miles logged. However, since only about 1000 people use the site, this semi-official site only attracts about 0.015% of the metropolitan population to use it and I would be loathe to accept any conclusions reached from such data. It also explains why NCTCOG has not put a lot of effort into making the site really very easy to use. I’m sure that with a calculator, my devoted reader could make all sorts of ludicrous conclusions from the results. Since you really can't enter "bicycle" as your commute mode, but only "bicycle/blade skate," it is POSSIBLE that everyone other than me that logged their miles those days in question were unrepentant blade skating commuters.
