Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

in general, how many avg mpw ya ride?

i know it probably varies, but with the warm weather and long days comin' on i find i put a lot more miles in, what with commutin' and just fun ridin' and all. i looked and found i've gone around a hundred miles just the past three days--commutin' and errands and all. great weather is what it's all about for a pu$$y such as myself--i don't ride in the rain. so way more miles for me now. how 'bout it?

so for the week ending today, i rode about 140 miles.

mine has stayed steady at about 40-50 miles a week through the winter and is slowly increasing now that the weather is getting nicer

Rainy winters like this one i dont get nearly as many miles in maybe 30-50 mpw, but when its nice and sunny and clear 100-150 this year im hoping to jack that way up. Especially since my commute just doubled.

My goal is at least 100 per week. When it was colder I was getting 140 or so pretty regularly, but now that it's warmer I've been closer to 100 (It actually has nothing to do with the weather). This week will be a higher week though, probably around 150.

during the winter i only really ride somewhere in the range of 15-25 miles a week because i live close to everything and i get lazy and tired of being bundled. the warm weather is finally coming though. this week i've done probably like 90-100 though, if i count the 60 mile ride last saturday with the cycling team. once the season picks up and i do more training who knows.

50-60. 30 of them are work. 10 are school, and the rest are shopping/ sh1ts & giggles. however, this weather is enticing me off my lazy butt and away from this computer.

i'd say about a 150 a week. maybe 120 during the week commuting and 30 on the weekend, usually off-road.

50-60 what with the commuting and errands, hopefully adding in another 20 mpw of non-stop-fun trail riding.

I'm guessing around 210 since I ride about 30 a day, but I am really not sure. So i'll say 120 - 210 a week

roughly 120, certainly it's sometimes more, certainly it's sometime less, 100 a week is for work, the 20 and up is errands, fun, ridding to a bar, it's probably more than that if i add it up but whatev

Right now about 30 or something pitiful like that.

If/when I start commuting to work, it'll be up around 160 - 180.

80 if I ride to work every day, plus a few here and there commuting to friends / bars / shows.

I was lazy last week. drove every day. I'm a jerk.
