If you care to post them...

 

 

I rode 24.2 today, giving me a nice round 3,300 for the year.   

 

Considering all my medical issues this year (hospital, rehab, cancer treatment, etc), I'll take it.   :)

The most I've done is 4000 miles in my first year about 4 years ago. I've come up with about 2500 this year. I'm setting my sights on 3000 this upcoming year. I love biking but that's a lot of time in the saddle. I do the best with what time I have.

a lot, but I don't count my milage! 

 

As part of the ACA, you will be required to maintain mileage records of all cycling and running starting in 2015.  Non-compliance can result in a stiff fine.

That's cool.  But I have never understood the term "elevation gain".  What about all of the downhill?  I don't understand how you can ride up a 100 ft incline and then down a 100 ft decline and still end up with a "gain"?

10,368 miles.

Not too bad when you factor in the wreck. I'm not as strong as I used to be, but in March it was hard for me to walk 100 feet.


You retired?? Where do you find the time?

I agree. It's not the total number, it's the number that pushes you a bit. For me, 3K is pushing it -- mainly because of the time required to sit in the saddle to do anything more. But 3K is attainable for me.

this year I was unemployed for a huge portion of the year, but in most years I still get about 14k miles and work full time.


Cool. I have to think 1) the constant nice weather helps, and 2) the flat terrain where you live. But it rains lightly here, I've lived here my whole life, and I have a roughly 25 mile ride into Seattle on a Rails-To-Trail deal so I have no excuse.

Finding the time is the biggest challenge.

Riding before work is not an option for me, If I am not on the rode driving to work by 5:15 am, it takes twice as long to get there.

I commute about 3 - 4 hours a day, when I get home I am often too tired to go ride, but I sometimes do.

I try to ride to work twice a week when the weather is nice.  It's 30 miles each way, so that helps pack in the miles.

Sometimes on weekends I just don't feel like taking up my only free day riding all day long.

I don't race and I don't do group rides so that makes it a little harder to get the miles in.

 

Working full time, commuting 15+ hours a week and taking care of a house is a big burden.  I'm happy with the 4,000 (almost) miles I got in.
