How often do you get out and ride?

I was just wondering how often you guys ride your mountain bikes and other bikes?
Seems to me like I am riding almost everyday...

1-4 hours a day, 4 like twice a week.

Normal day..45 min road, a later 45 on some glacier carved rock down by the sea, close to home.

I try to ride at least an hour every day. I usually get to the local off road trails two or three times per week.

I just started riding three weeks ago (unless you count the riding I did as a kid) and I've been riding almost every day. Generally 15mi or so 3 times a week XC and the other day just a few miles on the roads around the house.

6 days a week. Ride to and from to school 5 times a week which all together is about 30 km (18.75 miles) and ride to and from to work on sunday (3.2 km or 2 miles), not far which is good! So all together i probably ride around 35 km a week. (21.8 miles)

I ride the commuter as often as weather permits, and I ride my trailbike as often as I can get weekend time that isn't conflicted with a volunteer project.

real rides...4 days to 5 days a week...I might commute 1 or 2..but (here comes the anti bike) I prefer walking to work. Gives me 30 minutes to myself to daydream and just be on my own.

I'm riding 2-3 times a week right now, I do my best to do at least one in the dirt. (I'd ride daily, but I have other life commitments too, like hockey twice a week )

How much do I ride..... NOT ENOUGH. I weather and bike pending, I commute and ride weekends. I would love to get a job doing R and D for a bike company, riding a bike all day.

Ride XC on a single speed.
