Yeah, me too. I have too many bikes to outfit a computer on each. Mostly I travel the same routes. I know the mileage, so it's easy to figure out. I guess my estimates are a bit of a swag, but I'm sure no one cares if my mileage is 5,352 actual vs 5,000 guestimated.

Ditto

I do have a couple of bikes with the click click odometers on them and I believe one may still have the old Huret wheel driven speedometer/odometer on it. Most of my mileage is estimated. I know how far it is to the places I ride on a regular basis. Everything else can be tracked on mappedometer.

Round about 150-200 miles a week. Sometimes I might do 300 if I do a brevet or just feel like riding long in the weekend.

My cycling mileage is anywhere between 10 and 150 a week. It really depends on a lot of factors - how many days I have to go to actual work rather than working from home, whether we run out of food, and how much free time I get for recreational riding.

Most of my mileage is recreational. With my inconsistent schedule, I got tired of long commutes. There's also nowhere I'd want to live that's more than two miles and less than 20 from my current job.

I'm also computer free. I used My Tracks on my phone for a short while, but it was too much fuss - I'd rather ride. If I want to know how far I went or how much climbing happened, I use Map My Ride. If I want to know how fast I'm going, I'll find a street with a speed sensor...or sneak up behind a roadie and ask.

About 50-100 miles/week. It used to be a lot more, but I've cut back now that I'm running again.
