Another thing that makes a schedule difficult is that riding conditions affect the need for maintenance A LOT. Someone who rides on the road in fair weather will seldom need to perform maintenance compared with someone who rides in the rain or in dusty locales. Or worse yet, on salted winter roads.

If you've got traditional-style cup and cone loose ball bearings, I'd open 'em up to clean and degrease at least every few years, even if they seem to be spinning fine. For cartridge bearings or pretty much anything else, it's like AnkleWork said: if it seems like it needs work, then work on it.
