    Total miles pedaled for this calendar year

    Curious what kind of miles people will pedal for this calendar year. I'm going to end up close to 3,000.

    I will get just under 3k. Not bad for an old guy with bad knees riding only twice a week. I will get about 350k ft. of climbing.

    I clocked a hair over 4,000 last year. This year will probably be more.

    I am so jealous of all you guys. I only clocked 800 miles so far. Pushing for 1k by year's end. Thats with 2 rides a week average 10 miles a ride. Wish i can go longer but dont want to upset the precious balance of happy wife and happy bike.

    Close to 3500 miles by the end of year. Not too bad considering I was off the bike until August 1.

    If my miserable winter trainer miles count, I'd be around 2,000. Otherwise, only 1,300 (800 mtn, 500 road), and 270k feet of climbing. I used to think PA was fairly flat since there aren't any big hills, but the bubble wrap like topography really adds up after a while, and is comparable with other places I've ridden with real mountains.

    I managed to get over 1k this year, admittedly, some of it is road. I live 1 mile from a paved path trail, so if I am short on time, I hop on that and just bust it out. There are a few dirt trail off shoots, but nothing spectacular, but I do hit them. I am shooting to double that for next year.

    I log my miles at bikejournal.com and have 5,700 miles behind me this year. My goal is 6,000 so 300 to go. Most miles have been on a single speed and 75% off the pavement. Lots of endurance miles and pretty fried, I'm hoping to get those last 300 in.

    Nice- I wish I had more time for pedaling. Figure 3k is good for this year and now that I am commuting to work 2-3 days/week (plus 2-3 MTB rides) my mileage should be over 5k next year.

    I've been using dailymile.com since June. It integrates very well with Cyclemeter (posts data on the web automatically when I click Done on my iPhone) and the dailymile site has nice graphs/stats.

    I don't track my commuting miles. I commuted most days in the spring and so far quite a few this fall. I avoided commuting during the heat of summer, so totals there are down. The riding I did during the summer was mostly mtb night riding.

    I'd bet I'm somewhere in the vicinity of 1,000mi on the year. I'll have to query my GPS data at home to see what my mtb mileage total is for the year.

    Aiming to maintain 100 miles/week gets me around 5000 miles for the year. The SPD pedal bearings are about to go soon.

    About 2500 this year. Most of that on the road bike, though. I'm hoping for a little better balance next year, as well as 4k total miles. Expanding my riding season to 12 months from about 6 months the last few years will help, I think.

    On course for about 1300 all mountain. Don't even own a road bike.
    How can anyone who's been riding as long as I have, be so slow???

    Actually, for the Luddites and retrogrouches among us, the poll should have a "No idea" option. I ride for the simple pleasure it provides, and tracking miles and hours would be laborious and suck the fun out of riding (much like racing does).

    Not enough. The weather wasn't that great this year so I didn't ride as much as I wanted to.

    I'll hit 3000 miles this year which doesn't seem like much at all. I'm sporadic in my riding which brings down the average hours per week quite a bit. That average is around 4.5 hours/wk with most of those miles done on the road.

    +1 for an "I have no idea" option.

    Sometimes I train for races, sometimes I don't. Most times I ride the same amount.

    About 800 off road and 1000 on road. All time low on mountain bike. Wet & flooding spring, massive wind storm in July destroyed local trail and broken collarbone in October. I hope that changes for next year. A cold, freezing winter would be a good start.

    Right on. I've just gone past 1500 miles, all mountain and I too don't own a road bike and never plan to.

    Thanks to Cycling Log it's easy to keep up with riding stats, I have 5800 miles so far, 901 on the road, 255 on rollers and the 4644 on good ole dirt. Of the mountain biking miles I had 965 race miles in 21 races for the year

    I'll probably end the season around 10,000Km (commuting, road, mountain), trainer time not included.

    This is my 2nd year riding mtn bikes....I'll hit 1000 or so miles with 90% off road. I'm actually pretty proud of that number. First 3 months of the year recovering from shoulder surgery. Too much family responsibilities to get the big numbers but goal is higher for next year including a run at Syllamo's Revenge (50 mile race as I hit 50 next year - ughhh) in Arkansas in May. I am averaging a little over 10 miles a ride which I need to increase for next year. Some of you folks are animals - sure wish I had that time.

    Right now, I have 2,138 miles logged this year. But there were a few (negligible) rides I didn't log, and I was off the bike for the month of July and part of August.

    Haven't thought about this before, but I might make a goal of 4,000 miles for next year. Seeing as how I hope to add commuting into the list 3-4 days a week (30 miles round trip if I get this job) that should be very easy.

    To the date of this posting (December 1st, 2011) I have ridden 4,443 miles with a total of 433,187 feet of altitude gain:

    Climbing Competition | Strava

    Here is the list of badasses on the MTBR.com Strava KOM challenge:

    Climbing Competition | mtbr.com Results | Strava

    Back in 2008 - 2009 I was doing roughly 7,200 per year on a roadbike (mainly commuting to/from work), but these 4,400+ miles have been tougher due to the steep grades and technical terrain.

    About 1000 miles with 125,000 feet of climbing. All dirt, no road. Garmin Connect has me at 825 with 117,000 feet, but I forget to charge the stupid thing 20% of the time.

    I'm a bike commuter, so I get more miles. And I can ride year-round in NorCal.

    From connect.garmin.com:

    Count:
    370 Activities
    Distance:
    5,449.50 mi
    Time:
    637:10:49 h:m:s
    Elevation Gain:
    575,093 ft

    If I narrow the activity type to "mountain biking" I get:

    Count:
    79 Activities
    Distance:
    1,464.09 mi
    Time:
    259:59:13 h:m:s

    Wow Morgan that is impressive - I bike into NYC 2 days a week (sometimes 3 - it's 50 miles round trip) from NJ and will just get over 5000 for the year including about 850 on the mtn bike

    Probably about 400 mountain, 1200 road/rail trail miles on my cross bike with 150 to 200k feet of climbing. Hoping to do more racing next year, so I'll probably set a new years resolution to get in at least 2500 next year.

    :-)

    My commute is Oakland - San Francisco - Oakland three days a week. We live at 920' and I start the ride home at sea level. I like it, for the most part.

    Looking at my numbers, I'm amazed at Mark Weir doing 1,000,000' climbing in a year. I mean yeah he gets paid to ride, but I think he still works a little bit for WTB.

    2009 3673 miles, 482993 vertical ft.
    2010 2311 miles, 311674 vertical ft.
    2011 1403 miles, 193453 vertical ft, so far this year. Maybe on par for a little over 1500 miles this year.

    Almost all my miles were dirt, all of them on the mtn bikes.

    2,982 miles.

    My median ride time is only 25 minutes, lots of short commutes and just squeezing in a short rides when when I can. Life with a newborn is busy.

    I'm at 1500 right now, should finish out around 2000 or so. I highly recommend bikejournal if you are not using it.

    1750 miles and 343k feet of climbing so far. I was trying to get 25k of climbing (on dirt) per month all year. Some months were no problem but the last couple months have been tough w/ family stuff. In 2012, I think I'll lower it to 20k per and spend more time working on getting faster on technical DHs

    Not to bad considering your post count



    Got stuck at the 500 mile mark, would have hit 1000 this year which I feel isnt bad for this country but had to many things happen which prevented it, oh well, next year

    This thread makes me feel like an underachiever. I'm going to finish the year right around 500 miles. I was out of commission from February through August, but still . . . 500 miles since then is pretty weak. I can only ride on Weekends too which also sucks. I wish I had time to ride more.

    How did you come up with your calorie figure?

    I average 53 calories per mile although all my riding is flat pavement, concrete sidewalk without any elevation change.

    I have always used the calculator at:

    caloriesperhour (dot) com/index_burn.php

    caloriesperhour (dot) com/index_burn.php
    Garmin connect for totals!!

    +1 for impressive Morgan. The vast majority of my miles are on 29ers (better than 60% on the couch, errr Sultan).

    My commute is 2.85 mi with little elevation change and I typically make it 10-14 round trip and manage to do so 2-3x per week. Along with 2 "fun rides" a week (urban assault in and around DC when the trails are muddy), I should be on pace for 4-5k miles total next year. In a part of the US with 4 seasons, I'll end up close to bike 180 stats (~3.5 days / week riding this year). Already have 2 snow rides in this fall wheee...

    just got a garmin a few months ago, but looks like between 4k-5k, 95% mountain.

    I use elevation gained as a better indicator, as mileage can be flat roadie miles in a paceline. I'm a full time college student, so that definitely helps.

    I hope to crack 500k climbing, but a few months of underperforming and then getting sick for a week + recovering time has me behind.

    Now how many beers were consumed this year after rides? That number might be pretty high!

    This is always my struggle as well - the precious balance. I'm seriously impressed with the totals that I'm seeing. I thought I was hard core with my measly 800 miles!

    Yep, it's tough. My rides are limited to before 8:00 AM Mon-Fri and race day. I put a our second car in storage to force me to commute every day. It's only 3.5 miles, but it works...adding up to almost 3,000 miles. Probably 2000 of which are before 8 in the morning.

    I agree.
    I hit 1200 along with a complete Achilles rupture and all that goes with that. I go from Oct. to Oct. since I got my computer for my b-day then.

    Currently 956 miles since June 29th, when I started riding seriously again. 55k in climbing, all off road. Should hit 1k + by end of year, assuming replacement frame arrives this week as planned!

    around 5500 miles by years end

    I have been on a physical transformation program since mid june and have been averaging 125 mi/wk. So far I have pedaled off 25 lbs of fat. This past week I logged 180 mi., most miles in a week by far. It is pushing many parts of my life to the side right now but I feel better than ever. I am working on making adjustments to diet. I eat healthy meals but it is the deserts in the evening is/was my problem. I am halfway to my weight goal and over halfway to my strength/cardio goals. Transition to maintaining the fitness and weight will be challenging to say the least. I am begining to really enjoy the extra miles and time on the bike.

    I must admit...I am addicted to riding and will refuse all attempts to rehab

    I know I have at least 2k trail miles, but that only counts the XC trails where I can estimate mileage by how many hours I ride and have ridden my hardtail on it before. I don't have a cyclometer on any of my bikes except my hardtail. I don't really have a doubt that I have over 2500, but "4000k or less" sounds a bit far out. I just picked 2500 cause that "or less" part sounds dumb, cause I could just ride my bike once and I could pick 7000 or less, so I just ignored that "or less" part.

    Pretty close to 4500 for the year. I haven't tallied up the computers from all the bikes yet. Most of those miles are commuting, 350 are MTB and maybe about 500 as a roadie.

    At the age of 45 I think it's safe to say this is my highest mileage year.

    Switch to the metric system, it gives you more! My ~10 000 km. per year make not so impressive 6000 miles. MTB and commuting (does getting to the trailhead and back home on MTB qualify for road riding?).

    1,470 as of the day after Christmas - all mountain bike miles about 1/2 commuting and the other 1/2 single track - snow in the forcast now so that's probably it for this season.

    With only a few days left in 2011, my mileage thus far is at 4,766 miles and total vertical ascent is at 461,992 feet.

    Climbing Competition | Strava

    The majority of the riding (more than 90%) was done on two heavy bikes (45+ pounds) with heavy tires/wheels (Surly 1x1 w/3" wide meats on 65mm wide rims; Surly Pugsley w/3.8" wide meats on 65mm wide rims), so I wonder what this would translate to on a “normal” layperson’s bike with “skinny” tires/wheels that don’t weigh 12 pounds?

    I am at about 6700 miles.

    There are a few days left, unlikely that I will hit 7,000. My lowest mileage total in many years.

    About 2500 on the MTB and another 2000 on the road bike. The MTB riding season here above 9000' is only from mid-early June till early - mid October. We have a trail system that is par with any place in the world, but we have a short season. If I want to ride off road outside of that I generally have to drive (usually not too far, just down in altitude). Most of my road miles are in the shoulder seasons.

    Wow, some serious mileage post up here!

    I have not idea of the # of miles that I put in this year. But, I know I had a ton of fun on my bike.

    My ride goal for 2012 is to ride more.

    1400 km which translates to roughly 900 miles, all off road, starting biking in july and sitting out all of december with a broken wrist.

    Cast comes off tomorrow so I'm ready to take a stab at making 2012 a 2k+ miles season..

    Almost all my miles were dirt, all of them on the mtn bikes.
    Seem to have done a lot longer rides with more vertical this past month, now that December finally cooled off.

    You need to consider the location and what the trails are like too. I did a personal record high 2500 miles (estimated, since I have multiple bikes and don't have a computer on all of them) and actually only consider myself to be a weekend warrior. I'm in SoCal, where you can ride year long and there's hardly any rain, with vast stretches of fast [loose over] hardpack singletrack. My rides average 2+ hours and 20-25 miles, riding 2-3 a week. Add in summer months and the few all day epics... being conservative, it averages out to be like 50 miles a week x 52 weeks = 2600. It's hard not to stay off a bike or not to be itching for more riding after being off the bike, so if you're out for 4 weeks for a light injury, I think you would naturally make it up from the mtn biking withdrawal.

    Before that, when I was in New York, in my first year of *real* mtn biking ever, I think I only broke 1000 miles, even with road riding included. I didn't have a car nor a job, so I rode the ~8-10 miles just to get to the trailhead, and rode for however long I liked, and rode back. The good riding season started a bit late, because of the blizzard in late Feb '10 and I moved to SoCal on Vet's day, so it was a very limited year for me, but there wasn't much good riding left anyways.

    Before that, when I was commuting to work and did some light trails, in Florida, I racked up 5k miles, as I'd do 20 miles daily just from commuting. I still had to do PT as well, running another 5 miles or so, add detours to stop at the store and a few library visits and it wasn't hard to reach that kind of mileage, but it's mostly paved and easy to cover ~50% more ground (considering I average 9-13 MPH on a mtn bike and 15+ on a commuter bike). If they rode that much on trails, it'd still be an impressive 3300 miles or so. That's a lot of time on a bike, which is what it boils down to for passion. No need to discriminate, but it does help to say whether it was truly on real trails or not.

    Hell, if there were dirt trails all the way to work, I would ride them instead of the road.

    I would agree- where you are, and type of trails really effects how much you can log in a year, IMHO. I did about 1,100 in 6 months last year, all dirt. Usually ride 3x a week. This weekend I logged 23 miles on Saturday, and 19 on Sunday. I do 12 every Wed night. But living in Austin, it is mild weather year round, and we have (unfortunately) had very little rain! Hoping to do about 2,500 miles this year.

    According to my Garmin I rode 3,102.86 miles in 2011 which is about 2/3 MTB and 1/3 road riding. I don't ever use it to record my commuting though which is approx 1,200 per year. So my total mileage is about 4,300 +/- a few hundred

    Here's my data for 2011 :

    Off course, you have some that is missing, like a few km and minutes... Btw, the time here is only from "moving" time. By my GPS. It's not like I'm leaving home at 12 and get back at 6 that I did 6 hours... I may have about 4 hours of moving time. Of real time

    I was riding about every day except Christmas time holidays and some during the summer. About 220 days out of 365 in 2011. 60% rate. Sorry, not have taken the elevation gains yet. I might do so for 2012.
