    How many miles cycled in 2010?

    We are half way through the year and it is time for those who keep statistics to post them. Besides miles, feel free to provide total climbing and of course the average speed. If you are a known or confessed doper, post anyway, we do not care.

    3590, which still puts me 160 miles behind the pace I need to be doing to reach my 7500 miles goal for the year. I rode to work 76 times the first half of the year, and I expect to be riding to work even more often as I take an extended break from long distance riding.

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    2376 miles, first three months on and off due to crashes. Don't keep track of elevation. First 1000 miles no computer, avg speed 16 +. If i stay upright should be around 6000 miles for the year. California is great for year round riding.

    Waist size 30 inches, length of phallus approximately 20 cm (always sounds better in metric) but that's all I'm saying.

    2700+ miles to date, already exceeding my total miles of last year. Won't have that many miles if I didn't ride during the winter months. I'm gonna finish '10 with over 4500 miles for sure.

    It is clear that you cannot wrap your phallus around your waist - metric or not.

    Do you include reps in the gym with your smile count i.e. one rep = one smile? Or do you grimace in the gym?

    Well, we have bicycling smile count as a distinct category.

    Then we have swimming smile count, resistance training smile count and stretching smile count - also as distinct activities.

    This makes for one heck of an Excel Spreadsheet, along with ranges, average, standard deviations, medians, modes and the like. Then, I try applying the stats to the entire population (of which I am only a sample of one) - I could stay up all night figuring out my smile stats - but I don't!

    I no longer count walking smile counts, as my darn back is saying "I want your legs to go numb and then hurt when you walk" so I have reduced one of my favorite smile activities.

    204500/(3515*5280/2) = 2.2% average grade (assuming all routes are loops)!

    MY GPS records keep track of most of my miles except my commute miles and the few training rides where I don't bother with taking the GPS or the batteries went dead.
    My guess therefore is a measly 1400 miles. As far as climbing, I can add up over 30,000' for just hill repeats and the times up Whiteface & Greylock. I could probably guess my climb elevation but just to put things in perspective - last weekends ride (see TRex ride thread) was 80 miles with 6000' of climbing. By the equation above that yields a 2.8% average grade - now I consider that ride as a very hilly ride - therefore I must conclude that you sure are doing a lot of climbing and your average terrain is not at all flat.

    You are correct. On the peninsula there is limited flat terrain and it is mostly along the bay. The easiest terrain we have is rolling 1 to 2% with occasional short flat sections. And this is the bay area noted for sailing, so there is always wind. We do many rides that have 100 feet per mile of climbing.

    Quite frankly, I think that climbing should be calculated as you noted. If I climb up Mount Hamilton that is 4400 feet of climbing (sea level to the top) but in reality there are 3 climbs and two descents. The 705 altimeter captures the descending and then restarts climbing. Now on Mount Hamilton that is probably fair. But on many of the rolling 1 to 2% grades the altimeter just keeps logging feet climbed even though, it is pretty easy compared to climbing Mount Hamilton.

    Here is some terrain within a couple miles from my house where I do my climbing z4, z5 and z6s.

    2838 with only 4 rides in Jan and zero in Feb. I wish I had more but I am still happy with what I have.

    Average speed, which means nothing as we all know, is 17.26 for all rides. ( Deep Woods Off free too)

    Total climbing ,not a clue to be honest. I do not have that on my Cateye.

    1670 miles since my riding season began in mid-March. I wish it were more, but I travel too damned much I'm hoping that I can ride pretty much solid from mid-July through the end of August. My aim is to average 180 miles/week over that ~6 week period.

    4594.14 at last report. I commute to work daily. Would have had more, but I broadsided a deer one morning and had to have a shoulder reconstructed.

    I've not a freaking clue. My computer crashed and my GPS data was lost, AND the Garmin 305 was destroyed when I t-boned the dog on Memorial day. If I had to take a guess based on last week's total of 367 miles (went back to my old Cateye), I'd say 9542 miles.
