    250,00 Bicycle Miles

    Chuck 69 y/o and Dave 65 y/o have logged a Combined 250,731 Bicycle Miles.
    I have been riding with them for 4 months.
    They have taught me endurance and bicycle maintenance.
    Real Neat Guys to ride with.

    That's a lot of miles

    I rode with a lady this morning who has logged 100,000+ miles with our cycling club. I'm sure she had many more before she joined the club. She's in her early 70's and still riding strong.

    started racing when 20, 33 years later I've ridden about 165,000 to 200,000 miles. Cycling is a great lifetime sport, but I wonder about all the time I've spent just riding....I assume I've got another 20 years left in my legs

    Wow. Just, wow.

    Beverly: When did the lady in your club start riding?

    She started riding with the club around 19 years ago. Before joining the club she rode with friends and her children so it's hard to say what her total mileage might be.

    Yep, Dave at 65 y/o has 174,000 logged miles.
    We have some other 20 yr riders. Will have to check on their miles.

    I have passed the 100k milepost, but it took me 40 years to get there.

    We have covered 220,000 miles on tandem bicycles in 33 years. We don't count single bike miles as riding TWOgether!
