    What's your mileage for 2005?

    Ok....2005 is almost at a close now. How did you do for your goal this year?

    What's your mileage (or kilometerage) for 2005?


    I never set a "goal", but last year was my first year on the bike and I only had about 300 miles for the entire year. This year I did much better with about 1200 miles for the year. Still fairly small compared to what I'd like, but I'm working on it.

    I had an '05 goal of doubling the 750 miles I did in '04 but didn't make it. I'm at 1,060 right now with no chance to ride anymore this year.

    I've decided to not set a specific goal for '06 and just enjoy whatever riding time I do get. I've come to realize there are too many outside factors (family, work, weather, etc.) in my life to be able to set and attain a specific goal.

    About 8k miles for 2005 – but I use my bike for most of my transportation. My main commuter bike just turned over its computer (10,000 becomes 0) yesterday – that was fun. I didn't have a goal.

    I only had my cyclocomp in april, I guess.
    Already had 1800 something kilometres.
    Not bad for a beginner, huh?
    Only on asphalt.

    I don't keep track of miles, but here's an indication of how much time I spent on the bike in '05: I have distinct tan lines on my legs on December 28th when I haven't worn shorts since mid-September.

    Last year, I had tan lines on my back from the outline of my jersey logo!
    That means I got a tan THROUGH my jersey.

    Stopped counting at 2,600 back in September. It's cold here, so I'm just riding a trainer until Spring. I want 3,000 or more for 2006.

    Something over 3,700 km (or 2,300 miles) divided more or less evenly between the commuter (hybrid) and the weekender (road bike). That's the most I have ever done by such a long way I'm not even going to count it. And it's warm enough that I could even be riding in this week, except that I'm no longer in bike mode and am about to try spinning classes so I don't get too horribly unfit during the off season.

    Not so hot this year, but a massive inprovement over last year:
    300mi commuting (at least that i can document, probably had more, but...)
    600mi on the road bike.
    since i think i did less than 200mi last year total, i'm calling this a good. with a probable move coming in the spring i haven't set any kind of goal because i don't know my work situation for next year and how it will affect my life (or lack thereof).

    woah.. dont blame the u2 tour for anything!! i spent 2 of the best nights of my life seeing them in dublin this year.

    for me, i think i only put 750km on my bike this year. Most of that was on pavement, i didnt do much trail riding this year.

    the lack of mileage was because of back Surgery in Febuary, that really messed me up, and i went on a 3 week binge to Ireland/France this summer.

    Next summer, i plan on putting at least 1000km of pure trail riding, and hopefully another 1000k of pavement riding.

    Gee...from these early replies I do not feel as bad. Rode just under 600 miles. I am accustomed to doing around 1,800...but that was a few years ago. Was forced into an early retirement that really did not provide much and now working two jobs. Did get in a 75 mile charity tour and lead many rides for two local clubs. Guess I can say the miles were all 'quality.'

    5,180 miles, with a ~40 mile ride planned for 12/31. The only bright spot in a dismal year.

    How about the top five riders at bikejournal.com, all over 20,000 miles, with the #1 just under 28,000!

    I have 3,490 miles in so far between mountain bike and road bike. I'm hoping to get in another 60 - 80 miles before Sunday. My goal for the year was 3,000 miles.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    1,590 for me in '05. I had a goal of 1,500 so I'm fairly pleased.
    My first year, 2004, I managed 801. So I almost doubled that.

    2000 will be the mark for me in '06. Work/travel demands
    limit anything loftier at the moment.

    Just tipped over 6000 yesterday. Probably end up with 6100. If I hadn't been off the bike 2 months this year due to injury and sickness it would have been 7000. Maybe next year.
    Sunrise saturday,
    I was biking the backroads,
    lost in the moment.

    12,000km (7,500 miles) ridden this year.

    I'm hoping to ride at least 15,000km next year.
