Breadown this years miles

We all see the stat's listed in Lowcel's sig, but how many miles were on hard tail? how many full suspension, and how many road bike? I rode significantly less miles total this year than last, but more miles were on mountain bikes this year, and I have to say I enjoyed myself a whole lot more. Here's mine
731 miles, Full susser
985 miles, Hardtail
1288 miles, Road Bike

I haven't updated that in a while, keep forgetting about it. I did glance at my spreadsheet last night and saw that I have worked out (bike, running, gym, etc) around 300 or so days this year. I slowed down a lot starting in October. I'm just now getting back into it.

I slowed down alot in October too, About fifteen pounds heavier now! WOW 300 days, you didn't take too many rest days, did you? Funny when Pete say's he rode a bunch, A get the feeling it's probably twice what any of us did!

Yeah, I'm between ten and fifteen pounds heavier myself. I have no doubt that Pete rode a lot more than I did. Same goes for kona! He put some serious miles in.

Nice. How many lapping days do you manage to do?

For me, no exact numbers, but unfortunately I only rode 700 or 800 miles. Between studying and biking, I can only devote myself to 1 thing hardcore, and unfortunately it was the studying

Sorry, but I've got to ask. If you feel so strongly about not caring why did you open this thread? Not only did you open the thread that you had no interest in you took the time to post about something that you have no interest in.

Pete said the same thing basically, why dont you pick on him. Or anyone else who posts useless information on a topic they know nothing about, and don't care about. There wouldn't be a bike forums if people didn't do this. Sorry I offended you.

I agree with you. I track time and miles both but have always emphasized the miles. Next season, i will be focused on hours and specific types of riding. My time and miles will likely both increase though because I will be starting a new job in Jan and hope to be able to commute often.

I wasn't picking on anyone. I was just replying to your comment. As for offended.......it takes much more than this to offend me. I just find it amusing that people actually take time to comment on something that they don't even care about.

I like having a computer for several reasons. I like to watch the actual time spent spinning the wheels which gives me an idea of how long I have been actually riding for. Also, when following unfamiliar trails, it is nice to have a map that tells you "fork at 4.1 miles," but how do you know where the 4.1 mile fork is unless you have a computer.

Just my $.02
