    What is your average miles ridden per ride?

    And elevation gain?

    Just curious to see what everyone else does. Maybe mention what is your motivation, eg: race, hobby, workout...

    I will start, about 12-15 miles and 1400-2500ft elevation gain.

    I confess, as far as the local pump track.

    So about 300m there, 300m back and lots of teeny tiny loops in the middle...

    when I lived in Salt Lake City: 4 times per week, ~25miles, 4-5,000ft gain.

    now back in the midwest 2 times per week, ~12miles, less than 500ft gain

    goal is mainly to stay in shape and have fun

    15-25 miles and 3000-5000 ft elevation gain most of the time, sometimes less, sometimes more.Only about once a week this year.

    I do two three types of ride. A) Mountain climb - 35 km, 1000 m height, B) quick XC track - 10 km, 300 m height, C) long runs on flat, 60km, no elevation (well, few meters, nothing significant).

    20-25 miles is the average with something about 4000 footies. I ride for fun and usually just try to get at least three good climbs and downhills in.

    All mountain forum?

    I rarely visit this forum but just noticed this post. Where are all the "all mountain" riders?
    I can only ride twice per week so I make them count. Weekday is 25 - 35 miles. Weekend is up to 49. I always get some good elevation.

    Looks similar to mine, with a bit less mileage, but a few thousand feet higher. I guess my gains are only low point to high point measurements. I have no clue what the total gain of my rides are.

    50 km, that's about 31 miles. Hobby, but my riding buddies always push me to push my limits, max was 110km (69miles). Still don't know how I got home that day, I was a total wreck...
