    total miles ridden in 2013

    it doesn't need to be precise...you can guess, use data from your cyclometer, strava or whatever. you can count your road miles too--and you can just tell us your total hours, if that's your thing.

    how many miles did you get in during 2013?

    i'll finish with 2,342, down from 4,200 + last year.

    going from being unemployed to having a full time job with a wonky schedule tends to do that...

    Nice job
    Better than sitting on the couch
    I got in 2500 in the dirt. It was a tough year with getting separated after 17 yrs and losing my battle for disability due to a brain injury. My bike is one of my best friends and I look forward to riding in 2014 and re-entering the work force. Do not know what yet but I have a life to live to the fullest.

    Hard to tell. I go in spurts using strava. In the summer I get a lot of rides in at some trails near work. Follow those same trail all the time, don't really see the point in using strava and a lot of times my battery isn't full so why kill it.

    Strava says 600 miles, 100 hours, 90,000 elevation gain and 49 rides. I would like to think I am about double that but probably closer to 1000. I have had some pretty epic rides though this past year both at home and including the Highland wilds of Scotland. Not bad IMO being 41,with a wife, kids, and a job that has me traveling about 2 months out of the year.

    Going for more in the coming year. Trying to start it off right with a ride tomorrow, about 16 miles and 4000 feet.

    Happy New Years to all!

    Strava says 2374. That includes running but not most of my trainer and treadmill time or commuting. Probably about 250 miles of commuting.

    Hopefully get back to about 3000 in the next year. I'm closer to trails now, so leads road riding to tick up the miles in less time. By hours, I'd like to be around 400. Including running and the gym.

    I finished a Master's degree, got married, and got a Real Job. That's my excuse. Ironically, while the Real Job takes more time than my degree program, I get more ride hours. Being able to plan ahead really helps.

    I rode around 1200 miles this year. Doubled my numbers from last year and am hoping for at least 2000 miles in 2014. 90+% of those miles were ridden on dirt.

    Estimated at 35km per ride x 3 per week = 5460km = 3392 miles
    heaven knows how many feet of elevation, but the area where I ride has 1000 feet of elevation with a myriad of track within that area so your guess would be as good as mine

    According to STRAVA I finished just shy of 3,000 miles.

    Didn't get a smart phone and start until half way through January, so I'm calling it 3K

    Per Strava, 875 mi mountainbiking, but I'm guessing it's closer to 1500-1600 mi. I first started using Strava to log rides at the end of March, and I wasn't consistent about using a GPS on every ride (only 3 rides total were tracked between September and October, for example).
    Speed solves all problems, except for those things it makes worse.

    Almost all mountain bike - only 100 miles of road.

    I see some amazing numbers in here - I was pretty proud of my year, but damn.

    I didn't start riding this year until May and we bought a house in July (2 kids and married - and she does complain a little that I go "quite a bit" in her eyes). Those are the good excuses I'll stick with.

    Got in 1,485 from January to June and then was sidelined for the rest of the year due to an unexpected injury. Hopefully I'll be able to ride again during the summer of 2014.

    Nice job on all the other numbers posted here! Life moves fast and a person never knows when their last ride might really be their last. Make 2014 a good year.

    I do not measure miles. I measure smiles.

    A short 10 mile ride I thoroughly enjoy rates higher to me than a meh century.

    I fell short of my 1,000 mi goal by 35ish miles. I can't complain after being off the bike for the previous 5 years or so.

    From Strava:


    Many fun memories of riding this year. I was aiming for more mileage and elevation but injuries, sickness, school, etc kept me off the bike for a bit. I know Strava isn't a good form of measurement but I'm not about to pull out a map and do it manually nor buy any kind of odometer for my bike since Strava is free and easy to use.

    In 2012 I had 140 MTB rides and I set a personal goal to exceed 150 in 2013. My result was 187 rides (specifically MTB). That equates to a little better than a MTB ride every other day. I'm thrilled to have managed that much riding. As someone above said...that's a lot of smiles!

    2014 I'm going to try and stick with 180+ and see if I can't ride more venues. I did 49 different venues in 2013.

    Congrats Shekky and others on your tracking your impressive mileage.

    I don't have a means to track but I have been riding all year (got pics of every ride ). I haven't missed too many weekends and I've gotten in at least one or 2 rides during the week. Summer mostly DH; spring, fall and winter my husband and I ride trails and a little road.

    I started using Strava in late June and it says 550 mile's. So figure probly 1000 miles total with the missed month when I broke my frame. Mananged to drop 50lbs as well, plan to actually try to get some mileage next year.

    Strava says 5532 miles, 400,000ish feet of climbing. some road riding, and commuting in there. Not counting the 30-ish days of trainer miles during our never ending winter

    3050 km, so bit shy of 2000 miles, though maybe 20% of that was on dirt, rest road and commuting miles. aim for this year to not slack off so much in winter and make a point of getting out to the trails when I can

    Ouch. I feel pretty embarrassed after seeing your numbers. I am in my early 50's, work 55 hrs a week, and my numbers are slightly lower in miles compared to 2012, but 45% more elevation gain than 2012. Below does not include when I ride road around for cardio. This is all MTB stuff. New Year's resolution; I will improve in 2014. Goal is no less than 1,000 miles of dirt.

    I had about 1000. And most of that came in March, June, July and August (late July I was getting ready for a century and August I did the century). I hardly rode in 2013, and rarely enjoyed it. 2013 was the year of getting back in to some other hobbies that are kid friendly, now that my kid is old enough to do them with me.

    522.3 acording to Strava, almost all of it on my SS here in Qatar. Small camp, so I only have a couple 3 mile loops to do here, so boredom was an issue. I get back to CO in march so I hope to seriously up those miles this year!

    200 Days. About 70 on the Road bike and 130 MTB. Road Miles about 1800 or so. Highlights on the road Chelan Century and West Maui Loop.
    MTB Highlights. Big GLC drop at Whistler Bike Park, Half Nelson at Squamish, 8 Track at Hood River, Middle Fork from the top at Mountain Bike Oregon, MTB in the Makawao Forest on Maui. Good stuff everywhere. Miles and miles of smiles. No racing or training during 2013

    Wow...you are all monsters. I am no where near those numbers and would be embarrased to say what I did.

    How you you all find the time to ride so much? I have 3 little kids so it can be difficult to get the time to put the miles in.

    I am jealous

    LOL, no children.

    Also lunch rides and after-work rides. And I used to commute, which is a much lower opportunity cost ride.

    If it makes you feel better, I am 23, no family and right now take advantage of the fact that I can make riding one of my top priorities, I train for endurance racing so need the time in the saddle...and last year I worked a job that allowed me a 1.5-2 hr ride every day during lunch. That plus long weekend rides and commuting, allowed me to rack up some miles...

    Didn't even crack 1000 miles this year, but I had a lot of fun riding with kids, teaching MTBing, riding the cruiser, tandem, indoors, and snow. ...and I upped my running game a bit as well.

    Twice a week, all trail

    I can only ride twice per week so I make them count. I missed a few rides due to surgery. I only ride trails.

    For those with miles in the thousands what kind of trails are you riding and does that also include alot of road miles (road bike).

    The reason I ask is the trails I ride in vegas are very rocky and technical so I cant ever imagine riding 36 miles in these trails in one day.

    Our rides are usually 10-15 miles with heavy uphill climbs and when we are done not only are we dripping wet but also wiped out due to the terrain.

    My annual 2500-3000 includes maybe 3-5% road bike miles when trails are too muddy to ride. Some of my 20-40 mile rides include 4-10 miles of dirt or paved roads to connect trails. Most of my rides are done from my house, so many will include a couple of miles on the road at the beginning and/or the end. Most of the trails I ride have quite a bit of climbing and are reasonably technical.

    When my kids were small, my wife and I would each have one weekday evening to ourselves during which the other watched the kids. We'd get decent miles on those evenings and on a decent weekend ride. The remaining rides were taken early morning or after the kids bedtimes.

    Most of my miles these days are still done in the early mornings before the trails get crowded and before they get too warm in the summer. I can often get a 20-25 mile loop in and still get back home and get cleaned up to start working by 9:00.
