2003 Mileage

Just got back from my last ride for 2003, and, well, someone's got to start this thread.

My total miles for 2003: 3322.05

I know this won't even come close to the miles commuters put on their bikes, but I'm proud of it.

My New Year's Day ride is planned, and the weather looks like it will be great, with temps in the high 40s F.

I ended up at about 1650 (not including trainer miles) . I was really shooting for 2000 this year... but since my bike went down 2 months ago... I got stuck there... next year I'm gonna try for 3000 miles !!

Boo-ya !

This year I got in 5,678 miles. This is about 1,200 miles less than 2002, but I can't really put a finger on why. It seemed like I was riding more, probably just not as long. Plus, a month off the bike from a crash hurt the overall mileage this year.

Total miles: 1550
Total on road bike: 747

Most roadie miles were on my old Univega that I sold in November and got a new-to-me (used) Cannondale R500 that had about 100 of those miles on.

I'm aiming higher next year once this road gets finished out here.

Hey Prosody I'm just like you, I just got back earlier today also from my last ride of this year, it was on my tandem, so that was cool..So I logged my final mileage for this year also on all the bikes and came to just over 5700 miles..about 200 miles more than last year, so I was happy with that also!!...Hopefully next year will be that much also, I'm already looking forward to my first ride of next year tomorrow also, cause here in Michigan it's not snowing or raining, and the roads are completly dry, so I'm going to get out also tomorrow, something I haven't done on Jan 1st for the last 3 years!!..

Have a happy new year everybody!!, and may many good riding miles and times be in 2004 for all of us!!

I didn't keep accurate records but think it was ~3500 miles (~5600 km). My best year yet.

About 3300 in the 6 months I've been riding. I'm hoping to triple that in 2004 since this year I've been sick a few weeks, and my first 2 months didn't include that many miles.

Finished my last ride of the year a few hours ago, and my final mileage was 2732 miles. 2650 was on my new bike. Last year I did around 1100 so a significant increase. Would have been nice to hit the 3000m mark, but my goal for the year was 2000, which I hit in sept, than I upped it to 2500 which I made a few months later. So next year it will be 3000+.

Well, the road bike odo says 2754 miles, and I'm guessing another 1000 miles on the mountain bikes.

VERY rough estimate (excluding MTB commuting) is about 9000km.....not bad considering 2 house shifts, some bad health (dyhydration etc) some bike down time etc etc and a crash... all go for 13,000+km this year!!

OK so its paltry but here goes. My total mileage for '03 was 785. most of this was just commuting, and '03 was the first year I kept track. In '04 I am shooting for 1500 mi. In the latter part of '03 I let a lot things mess up my head and kinda lost site of how much I love cycling, so a new year's resolution is back to the bike!

minus 15 lbs and 1652 miles since june. Hope to do 2004 this year. Just think- we all got the rest of our life's to put in as many miles as we are able.

NZ...I like to visualize my annual mileage in like how many times I crossed North America. 2003= 4.033 miles..that would cross the country and put me in Like, Labrador,maybe?
Your 9,000 km= approx. 6,000 US miles. That would be like riding the circumference of New Zealand like 10- times.
Last year- I like, rode from California to Labrador and returned to California. that sounds pretty good.With only money and time I would like to make that boast.
Better yet, if we could, like ride across the Atlantic and end up the UK.That would be good.....Be a pretty expensive toll road.
Some months I have been known to ride 1.000 miles.That seems pretty wasteful, when the same mileage and effort could have put me in Kansas.
