Got a Trek 1000 in April. Put 3000 miles on it last Summer and Fall. Since then i have been back to riding my mountain bikes on the dirt and gravel roads.

Between 5000-6000 miles on the mountain bikes this year. So i guess that is around 9,000 all together. Road bike miles are easy. If i rode my road bike all of the time i would have a LOT!

Just over 2000 for me... I haven't totaled them all up yet, but I was just glancing at all the computer odometers over the weekend.

As of today, 9062, but I have a 106 mile ride to Richmond, VA this Saturday for a New Year's party, what a way to end the year!

(Plus another 80 miles in commuting etc. till then) Going to be my biggest year yet in terms of miles ridden!

Bought a new hybrid on May 6th and have put 642.2 miles on the cyclometer to date. Miles without the meter, on the trainer, and mileage on my other bike are unknown.
I started out with 1.4 mile rides, so I am happy.

Now, if I could get 4 pound prosthetics instead of my 6 pounders and an aerodynamic bike I could get more miles in less time.

Just under 600 miles for me. I started riding in August. But I put in 200 miles for December and just under that for November. I plan on doing about 1700 miles next year.

6680 miles and I'll probably add 63 or so. But I count my years from when I first started riding (Feb 24, 2002). I started slow for this year, but I'm doing 200+ a week right now so I expect to be in the area of 7500 by the end of "my" year in late February.

I didn't have any goals. I bought my bike on March 12 of this year, and I am 2571 as of today. I hope I can get out a couple more times and break 2600.

Had some health issues last year so I set a conservative goal of 2000 commuter miles for the year. As of today I have 3020 & should log a few more. Don

I'm shocked at my mileage. I kept track of all of my rides in Excel but never added it up. I figured it was around 500 or 600 miles this year. Turns out it was 1,270 miles. However, the bulk of that was during the summer as it's too cold and/or I'm too lazy to ride in the fall, winter, or spring.

I put more miles on my bicycle than I did my motorcycle this year.

[EDIT]: Did a final 30 miles on New Year's Eve to hit an even 1,300 miles.

About 500 in commuting miles, and a week long tour for another 500ish. I don't record but I can't imagine how I wouldn't have put down at least another 2000 in day trips, tooling around, shopping and so on. I'll claim 3000 miles and imagine that it may well be more.

6,105, not counting the period of time when the computer on my commute bike wasn't working and the miles on the tandem. I'd have to guess my total mileage somewhere between 6,750 - 7,000.

Started logging actively when I got my Roubaix in July. Should be about 3100km since July. My spring was a little busier, so I'm probably around 4500km for the year. I'm committing to a long, hard year of riding and my goal is 10000 km for 2006.

This was my 4th year of riding. In my 40's with a full time job. My goal was to do several tough climbing centuries. Don't remember setting a mileage goal, but sometime in September I thought it would be neat to get over 2,000 miles on both of my current bikes.

2001 Lemond Tourmalet (sold) - 310 miles
2003 Bianchi Volpe - 2,102 miles
2004 Litespeed Solano - 2,113 miles

Total = 4,525

10401 kilometers.

(That's 6463 miles for those who are kilometrically challenged)

All of those were outside kilometers completed in various locations throughout: Alberta, British Columbia, California, Oregon, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, and Kansas. But mostly Alberta.

Not too bad for a girl who lives in the land of snow and ice!!


(I also did 384 kms inside on my trainer.)

I rode 1,800 miles in 2005, which is 52 miles farther than 2004. For 2006, I would like to hit 2,200. To get to 1,800 last year, I had to ride 26 miles yesterday (New Year's Eve). I am feeling it this morning.

I commute by bike to my job, so that accounts for most of my mileage. I did do a century on my birthday (I'm 47).

Old commuter: Marin Coast Trail: 1268
New commuter: Giant OCR Touring: 3348
Total : 4616
