how often do you all ride?

Hey,

I am just wondering how often everyone rides? I am very new to the sport, but I am living in santa cruz, where there are a ton of trails, so I have been really enjoying going for a ride almost everyday. The only problem is, I end up being perpetually sore. Anyway, I am just wondering how often most of you ride.

thanks,

welcome to BF

when it comes to riding im all over the shop. i train on a roadie 4 times a week, do another day of intervals on my trainer and do another ride on the MTB on the weekends, so i guess thats 6 out of 7 days a week.

IMHO unles your competing its not mow much you ride, but how much you get off on it.

Now that it's summer I'm out riding everyday. Usually riding my mtb on the weekdays and riding the road bike on the weekends.

I still ride everyday when school starts but I ride alot less. Just to and from school on the weekdays and maybe 40-50miles on the weekend.

thanks,
I ride about 10 miles a day. Not that many trails, so there isn't many places to ride.

I'm riding practically everday. It's just on the streets though. There aren't that many trails around here so i only go off road about once a week.

Every chance I get. Even if it is just a short high-intensity ride in the evening for 45min to an hour. You will always do yourself MORE good on your bike than on your couch!

6 or 7 days a week. I commute Monday-Friday (25 miles round tripi, except Thursdays in summer, which is 37 miles round trip) and try to do an additional 20 mile ride one night a week (whenever I find time) and then 30-70 miles over the weekend. As much as I can find time to.

I take advantage of the warm weather, I ride almost everyday about 50 K on a day I work, on my days of which is 2 days in a row, I try to bike about 100 to 150 k, have to do this coz' winter weather doesn't permit bike riding in North america, or it is extremely difficult to ride a bike in the snow
