    Varies.

    I try to get in lunch rides 3 times a week (more is impractical with work). If I've been good, I can get out for a long ride on the weekends.

    I feel pretty happy as long as I am getting rides in. If I do less than 150/month I feel like I should be doing more. In the summer that is more like 200 since there is more sun.

    Enjoy!

    recently:
    20-50 a day
    200-350 a week

    But I'm on goal for about 6700 miles for the year (6/24/03-6/24/04) Not too bad for my first year of riding, but I'd like to hit 9-10k this year.

    I try to ride about 5 to 6 hrs per week, sometimes on the road bike some on the mountain bike so mileage varies. Love having the option of two bikes and on this amount my legs and lungs are starting to come around.

    20 miles a day for the work commute. Another 10-20 miles in the evening. Maybe a 40 or 50 miler on Saturday or Sunday, with a 5-10 mile recovery ride on the other.

    So somewhere between 200-250 miles. Maybe 4000-5000 for the 6-7 months of riding season.

    From memory I'm closing on on my 10,000th km for the year thus far. I'm quite happy with that.

    100 a week, spread out over 3-4 days. I'm about 1050 total YTD. Goal for year is 2004, but will probably get in 3K (miles).

    Normally 100 - 125 miles commuting a week, rides at weekend. Just back from a 400 mile week long tour in Belgium, Northern France and at 3200 miles for the year so far.

    On that basis hope to do 6 - 7000 miles this year (only did about 5000 last year)

    In good weather I've been doing 100-130 miles a week. Had a couple weeks at 170-200 miles.

    When the really cold weather hits (Late December into February) I'll cut way back or stop all together. I tend to get sinus infections that time of year.

    12-14 hours per week on average in season. I try to get in at least 1 long ride per week of 4+ hours while the others are mostly between 2-3 hours. Lately it's been tough to get motivated as it's done nothing but rain for the last month. 3 hours in the rain isn't too bad once in a while but three times a week is getting old.

    During the winter months I try to get 8-9 hours per week of combined trainer and outdoor riding in.

    I stopped tracking miles a couple of years back but would guess I probably have somewhere in the neighborhood of 3-4k for the year and will end up with around 8-9k.
