    How's your mileage this summer? How many miles a week u doing in the saddle? Looking to get back to 100-150 miles a week here, maybe more... however, lots of other activities just keep driving that back down below 100 miles a week....

    About 100 miles of biking, 24miles of running and 5K of swimming....weekly. And of course, 20 miles of driving on the weekends to socialize ;)...

    For the past 3 months I've been trying for about 150 miles a week -- riding Sat & Sun and one 30-mile ride or so midweek. The Shiner ride is this Saturday (90 miles, Austin to Shiner, TX) and after that I think I might cool it to more like 50 miles a week so I can spend more time getting back in shape for rock climbing -- sadly they're kind of mutually exclusive, past a certain point.

    I get to about 250-300km a week on the bike. And I am running about 60km a week. Makes for some long weeks on top of working full time 40 hours a week. I am getting a new bike as well tomorrow and I hope to get some miles on it before Duathlon World Championships. www.dusmithy.com

    In the last month I've been getting in 300 - 400 a week (having a 40 mile round trip commute helps) but have had to cut way back on swimming and weight training to make time.

    Biking 140 miles a week is really no big deal now. I really have to step it up more and bike more into the area I find scary and WEIRD!

    THE SUBURBS! icon_eek.gif

    Not so much lately icon_sad.gif

    But mountain miles ought to count for far more than flatland miles anyway. Does anybody use an ergometer, rather than an odometer?

    Well, I'm new to biking, but I can already see why it's so addictive.

    I've been riding up to a nearby park and doing a couple of laps around the mini-lake there. It's about a 7 mile ride total.

    Yesterday I biked 12 miles with a buddy of mine who's a cycling junkie. He gave me a lot of good tips (like getting better tires and such), and it sounds like he wants to help me train to do a century ride at some point.

    So, my total miles for my first week of biking was about 40. I think that's pretty good. icon_smile.gif

    I am really new to cycling. I basically only have a 2 hour window to cycle. I bike through the ghetto to a park which is connected to a university and then a bike path which is 6 miles long.

    So I would be safe to say it is 3-4 miles to get to the trail and then 6 mile out to the end of the trail and then back. So roughly 18-20 miles.

    I have 3 other routes but I am sure they are not as big on mileage since I am spending most of my time waiting at traffic lights trying to get to the trails then I am actually riding them.

    Eventually I want to ride to the park I like to run at and do that.
