[QUOTE=mrdoright0405]How many miles do you ride per day, week, year?

Around 20 per day.
About 100-140 per week, depending on the weather.
So far 760 miles this year, with a Goal of 3,000. (I'll be happy if I make 2,500)

This is my first full year riding and tracking miles - I started riding July '03.

Right now... 3 days per week... 20 miles a day... 60 miles per week. I'm moving at the end of the month and my commute will be 36 miles a day ... we will see how many times I'm able to ride per week.

Never as many as I'd like

I seem to only be able to find the time to do around 100 mi/week--I'd like to double that

I ride year round, In winter I commute 150 to 190 a week (38 miles a day) and do a 50 mile rec ride on the weekend day with the best weather, starting march my commuting is 5 days (all weather) and totals 190 miles weekly plus errands, I do a 75 mile rec ride on Sundays through the end of April. Starting May I do the commutes, a century Wednesday evening and an all day jaunt on Sunday usually totalling 125 to 150 miles. Saturday is my day off unless I have an errand to run. Last years total was 15,212 miles and many worn out parts and tires, this years mileage will probably be lower. I really enjoy this, I hope my health stays with me as I get older so that I can keep it up, The bicycle adds so much good to each day because it allows me to see, hear and experience my surroundings first hand.

I did 5046 miles last year, 1920 miles so far this year and I hope to do finish 2004 with 3500 miles (infant twins will cut into your riding time...), . In May, I had 502 miles, hope to have at least that for June.

Because of family issues I've gotten a late start training for RAGBRAI. As of 1 June I've managed 335 miles. What's that...167 miles per week. In the next week or so I hope to increase my training rides from 40 - 55 miles to 60 - 80 miles. And increase from four rides per week to 5 or 6. Right now I'm taking 2 - 3 days off per week, this will decrease as I get closer to the RAGBRAI start date.

Caloso, we were recently in your area with some Motor Coach problems. These problems, were minor, but costly, forced us to stop for a couple of days in Sacramento. We stayed at the Cal Expo RV park for a day (and night). We had our bikes with us and chanced upon a nearby bicycle/jogging trail that went quite a ways in both directions. We had a good ride on it.

Do you ever get out on it? Seemed like quite a few people were enjoying it, even though it was a week day.

Per day varies wildly. This time of year, about 100-125 mi. / week. Total last year was 3100 mi.; I should do about the same this year.

Me? 5- 10 miles per day, 20- 30 miles per week. For me? havent been riding a year yet. So far 270 miles.

Since April of 1982 through today, June 14, 2004, I've ridden 121,908 recorded miles. My biggest year was in 1986, 7,756 miles, and my least year was in 2000, 2,577 miles. To date this year, I have 2,198 miles, so it's probably going to be a year close to my average of 5,300 miles per year.
