What's your mileage to date? I'm at 3809, not far from last years 3911, and very close to breaking 4000. Hopefully I can before it gets too cold and there is $%#*! snow on the roads!

From Sept. 2000 (when I started riding) to Sept. 2001, Iv'e ridden about 4,075 miles. I rode 800 miles in the month of June because I had so much time during summer vacation. Just thinking about it... If I didn't have to go to school, my yearly total could've possibly been 9,600 miles. (800 miles x 12 months = 9,600 miles); But thats only in a perfect world : )

I'm so grateful I live in Phoenix. Winter is gonna be great!

8000+ .... not sure of the exact # as I don't keep track of it past one week. I've been doing 200-290 mile/week for about 6-7 months but the first part of the year (Jan-March) probably was only averaging only 150 miles/week.

I'm going to try to back off a bit next year .... 150-200 miles week sounds like a good sane #. I.e. It's probably not "healthy" to spend so much time on one activity ;) Also, I'm going to try to get my speed up a bit next year as 'big miles' doesn't seem to be helping me much in that area. :(

Oh, SoCal weather makes it easy to do 10K miles per year if you have the inclination.

Ditto the year round riding in SoCal. I'll end up with 7-8k miles this year, though the time change PDT/PST usually abbreviates the weekday rides.

Ditto the big miles vs quality miles: A few years back when I commuted a lot more, I'd ride over 10k/yr but wasn't very happy with my speed. These days, my speed is better though the training can be occasionally intermittent.

I am somewhere between 2800 and 2900 (my computer battery died and I rode without it for a couple weeks, also I rode a rental bike on vacation that did not have a computer). Weekday riding is nearly impossible for me from October until April (i.e., it is dark when I leave home for work and dark when I return). But, I do try to spend some time on the trainer. I envy all of you that have more miles than I do.

I should hit around 5700 miles for this year. I have been averaging 100 to 180 miles a week, with a few little breaks here and there. I think I will continue into next year just about the same. I have enough riding time to be feeling improvement in speed and endurance, as well as in my overall health. I also have enough time left over to spend time with my kids, my girlfriend and her kids, and to get in a bit of hiking and bouldering. Oh and work some too.

So far this year -- 5,920. Should break 6,000 this week.
3516.9 as of today ...Humma Hah

... actually slightly higher due to drop-outs of the computer. About 85% of that is on the singlespeed cruiser.

I was riding here in Virginia today in my cycling shorts and short-sleeved jersey. Last week I would have said winter was here, but we had a nice stretch of Indian Summer this weekend.

I'll hit about 4000 miles by December 31, an average of 80 miles a week all year, substantially above my original 60 mpw goal.

I have no idea how many hours I've put in on the trainer but it would probably add an extra 500 miles.
9800+ for the training year (Dec - mid Oct) n/tPimpanzee

I have 3729 miles not counting mountain bike and trainer miles.

I actually count from birthday to birthday (in September) rather than by calendar year. The bulk of my miles are commuting miles.
