    Consensus on base miles

    Can I count commuting miles as base miles?

    Furthmore, can I count commuting on a mountain bike as base?

    My commute is starting to add up and I do 1/2 on the mountain bike 1/2 on the road bike.

    Base miles are base miles, but if yer not getting any long base rides mixed in it could be questionable.

    Commuting in sneakers on a toodle-bike loaded with panniers or a backpack is extra mileage that always makes you stronger than if you sat in a car thinking about riding your bike.

    Of course it counts in your log book towards training.

    I used to add up to 8 hours a week to my training load like that. My best seasons always had extra miles. That simple.

    You, sir, have obviously never tried any high-quality TITS(TM). Despite what many say, the quality of TITS(TM) is as important as quantity. I would argue that most riders in the racing sub-forum have tried them at one time or another. Except maybe Pcad; despite his machismo, I doubt he has ever been near a real TITS(TM) session.
