How many years will it take you to reach 300k miles?(8 posts)

How many years will it take you to reach 300k miles?Slipstream

Reading MB1's post about the number of miles he & Miss M have ridden, I got to thinking how many years it would take me to reach that pinnacle. Based on my current average (a meager 2.5k/yr) and total estimated mileage to date, it would take me another 102 years of riding.

I guess I better cut down on the number of beers after each ride & improve my nutrition.

Again, my hat's off to MB1 & Miss M.

ride hard; have fun; be safe; ride long & far

That is an impressive figure and I am in awe of MB1 & MissM.

It'll probably take me over 100 years to reach that mark, too. But, that's my choice. Everyone is entitled to do whatever they want with their time. Congrats to them, and they should keep doing what they love. I will only get in about 100 miles this week, but I am going to have a couple beers & watch a Bruins game tonight, and I have other plans later in the week that will limit my riding. :)

Cheers.

And here he is. Now that really makes me depressed because it will take me 302 years to reach that mark.

You have driven me to drinking. Again!

Assuming normal lifespan, I need to average 14,000/yr...retro

I'm 57 now, and if I estimate I've done 50,000 (certainly generous) and ride until I'm 75, I can knock it off in a mere 267 miles a week. Of course if we have winters, I'll have to step up the summer riding...
