How far do you ride each week not counting recreation rides?
Less than 20
160 or more
I stage round trips [approximately 25 miles] from work to home. My goal is 3 a week or 75 miles. It also happens to be the majority of my riding.

My daily commute is about 13km round trip so I ride a little over 40 miles commuting a week. I answered 30-50 but was tempted to say 40-60 because I fit in both.....
20 miles each way - 40 round trip. 5 days a week. Pretty solidly in the 160 or over category.
12 miles each way - 120 per week.
I keep thinking I want to try another route that might not have as many rolling hills, for days when I'm tired.
21 miles round trip, usually four to five times a week.
11 to 12 miles each way depending on route, 5 days a week. Still looking for different routes that will take me longer to ride.
85mi per week commuting. An extra 10-30 for running errands.
23x5=115 miles for me.
that's shortest distance. i usually ride longer. and i ride a lot recreationally. a whole lot.

20-24 miles round trip (depends on route) 3-4 times a week (except winter...I'm a wimp)

I had a 200 mile a week commute once. And got to sit down during the day. Now I stand up and move all day and am happy the commute is under 7 miles each way. But if I feel good going home I have several thousand feet of paved climbing within a couple of miles of my back door.

32 miles round trip five days a week makes for a 160 mile week if I am stuck just commuting. Extending my commutes or doing a training/recreational ride on the weekend will often push my weekly total close to 250
12km round trip, every day, rain or shine or snow or sleet or what have you.
25 mile round trip makes for 125 miles a week if I don't make any detours which I like to do.
24 miles round trip and barring some pressing event I am on the MUP 5 days a week so I'm at an even 120 for the week.
God grant me the serenity to accept the hills and winds I cannot change;
courage to challenge the cagers I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

24 mi. roundtrip -- Maryland suburbs to DC and back.
My commute is 15 miles each way, but I only ride both ways two or three times a week. Occasionally I don't ride at all, but normally I do at least one way by bike. Some weeks are 60 mile weeks, others are 150 but more often than not I ride 100-120 miles a week.
I'm averaging about 100 miles a week.

Does it count if I take the long way home?
7 miles each way, so about 70 a week if it's not not raining (like today). Now that I'm all Californicated I don't ride in the rain anymore.
This semester, 2 trips a week in to campus x 8 miles RT = 16.
Next fall will be 5 trips a week x 8 miles = 40.
They're beautiful handsome machines that translate energy into joy.
Ride directly to/from work is about 8 RT now, but I am in college one night a week and visit my daughter 3-4 times a week each evening, so I rarely ever go straight home anymore. College adds another 7 (about 2 there, 5 back to home) and going to visit my daughter is a 8 mile trip there, and I guess about 10/11 home. I've only started getting back into commuting more this past couple weeks, so I've not yet got conditioned for super-duper riding (used to do the 16/18 RT 4-5/5 at one point). I'm going for 30-50 to be fair.
Shortest possible route is 6 miles per day to and from the closest bus stop to my apartment. I rarely do that, though.
I almost always go 3 miles in the morning to the bus stop.
At night, I usually take a different bus to the place my wife works, then I get some grub for the both of us and eat dinner with her at work. From there, I may go straight home (6 miles), or to the coffee shop on the way (adds about 3 miles to my trip home), or to the bike shop (adds one mile to the trip home from my wife's office) or any number of other errands I need to run while I'm out.
I average 4 bike commute days per week, and average about 10 miles per day from commuting, so I chose 30-50 because there's often a bit of flux in there.
only about 25 miles roundtrip per week. 40 miles round trip is just crazy.
my short commute gives me flexibility to go home from time to time for lunch or miscellaneous stuff. but that doesn't exactly count towards commuting mileage...does it?
10.8 miles one way, 5 times a week, every week of the year.
Hardly ever ride apart from commuting, except to go to meetings at church and sunday morning if I'm not walking, but church is < 1 mile away.
Once in a while I go to town for something, but mostly when I'm not going to work or coming home, I just stay home.
