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)

Miles a day

How many miles do you ride per day? I was just keeping a mental note to myself, then I decided to get just a basic Cateye Velo 5 to keep track. It's pretty cool I think. I ride anywhere from 7-27 miles a day. Trying to get up to at least 50 miles once a week. That might take awhile.

Probably around 20-50 on an average day. 9-10 mile commute plus work.

I average over 27 miles per day, if taking my monthly total and dividing by 30. In reality, since I take a couple days off here and there, I probably average closer to 35 miles a day. I just updated my fixed gear mileage post if you want to check that out. Should be on the front page of SS/FG for a few hours.

16 a day (two trips to college, 4 miles each way) and another 6 on work days. This is, of course, the usual. Some days I'll drive a trip and some days I'll take a longer commute to work. Plus recreational miles.
