I've got 1595.79 so far. Should have been between 2300 and 2500, but had the little knee injury thing. Should have no less than 3000 by the end of the year, but still shooting for 3500.

2003 miles at an average of 60.39 miles per week. I lost most of some weeks to travel, vacation, and fatigue. I would like to ride 80 to 100 miles each week. More conditioning and less weight will help. I currently weigh 205 lbs. down from 224 a year ago.

Wow, I almost feel wimpy with only 1,650 this year.
I'm aiming for 2,500 by the end of the year.

You feel wimpy? My 1079 feels almost shirley-worthy!

I could make excuses, but that's still 10 times more than most "bikers" do in a year

I understand about the miles coming to you easier with two bikes. I just finished my restoration project bike, and I can see putting in a lot more miles on the weekends now.

I've got 936 miles logged on bikejournal since I joined in May. I started riding in March but I wasn't keeping track of the mileage. I wasn't going as far then either, so I probably have about another 300 miles on the bike for the year.

It seems I can't determine, but I know its not as good as I'd like.

I was not riding as much as I should early in the year and the whole move across the country took me out of riding at all for about 2 months.

I didn't really start riding in earnest this year until about 2 months ago.

Probably 1000 at most.

I have no idea what my mileage so far this year is, but I think Tom should cut my Saturday Spinner miles in half.

I just did 15 miles of hills, and it's a whole* different workout than the flats I've been riding. I think my lake route should be 50 cents on the dollar.

All you really need to ride twice as far is two magnets.

My main detriment was that I got "hooked" on my Trek FX for doing, well, everything. And it hasn't really consistently been reliable with it's constant rear wheel issues. Now that I've finally gotten them straightened out, I started commuting on my consistently reliable Specialized MTB... and remembered why I loved it so much

So now I'm doing 15 mi/day commuting, and planning on 40/day on the weekends on the Trek. Math tells me that 150/week should be cake

Mileage is currently @ 2,870, will easily pass 4,000 this year, that will be the most for me in 1 year.

The stat that I am most proud of is my climbing, to date I have totaled 177,500 ft. With the climbing I am doing this weekend I will beat last years total climbing, my previous best for the year. I should easily reach my goal of 250,000+ ft of climbing for the year.

I guess next year I can go for 5000 miles and a vertical metric century (328,083 ft).

I've only ridden a little over 100 miles (since June), but I'm building up pretty quickly now, and hoping that September - December will be 150 - 200 miles each (ambitious? perhaps)... I MIGHT hit 1000 this year.... 700-800 is probably more realistic. It helps that I should be able to ride through most of the winter.

I've never tallied mine, but if I was to guess, I'd say I'm sitting at 1200 - 1500.

I'm shooting for 22,240 miles of climbing - that will place me in syncronous orbit.

I don't know / not enough...

When I started up this year, I wasn't keeping track of my mileage... beyond mild curiosity at the end of my rides. I know I've gone over 200 since mid-July... and 1102 since I first got the bike... but who knows about total...
