I did close to 3,000 miles in 2005. Not bad, considering that I didn't start riding seriously until spring, and I didn't even get a road bike until late April.

My goal for 2006 is an ambitious 5,000 miles. I guess that means I should ride some today, even though it's cold and rainy here.

I rode 17,892 km (11,117 miles) last year. Mostly commuting and touring.

Day's best: 220km, week's best: 831km, month's best: 2521km.

I rode 293 days out of 365.

My goal for 2006 is 15,000km.

4402 miles on my hybrid
400-550 miles on my mtb

my goal for 2006 is 5200 miles on my hybrid, that will be over 10k miles total on my hybrid since I've had it, which is more than most of the cars I've owned

Here's my Bikejournal.com stats:

Total Mileage: 6975 miles
Climbing: 380,760'
169 rides
404 hours on the bike

For 2006, I'm shooting for at least 8,000 miles and 500,000' of climbing. These goals really don't mean that much, but sometimes they help me stay motivated to get out there and keep riding.

On a good week I was trying to do 100 miles between my hybrid and road bike. So I guess my goal would have been 5,200 miles for the year. I think I actually did about 4,000 to 4,500.

This was my first season. Started in April.
My goal was 1500 miles. I did just over 2100. I'm pretty happy with that.

Somewhere around the 3K miles ... not really counting.

Does riding fixed add mileage due the inability to coast?

I didn't have a goal, but have done over 750 since I started keeping track in the summer. I'm sure that exceeds my previous 7 years combined with this bike. I really got into it this year and plan to do a 400+ mile supported tour in '06.

866 miles in 2005 -- and I was happy with each and every mile. First year I had been back on a bicycle in 20 years. I've almost surpassed that mileage already in 2006.

7,200 miles. Each year it depends on how much commuting I get in. On fun rides I go for hill where I get a better training effect.
