Just started "Team Scrapple" and can't wait to get started! Do biked portions of mix-mode commutes count toward the challenge? Also, if we log commuting miles and sport miles, how do we make sure only the commutes get logged toward the challenge?

Jim - If you're entering miles manually, you can just enter the distance and trip type on the website. If you're using the Endomondo app to log miles, just start your trip when you begin the bike portion of your mix-mode trip. It should get added automatically.

All bike miles count for the challenge: commute, sport, transport, etc. So you don't need to worry about only logging commuting miles.
