    I ride 'round about 150 miles a week. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are my big rides, usually totalling 'round 120 miles, then I try to get a short recovery ride on Monday and a decent grind on Wednesday. These rides I do after work (yes, I have a job!).

    If you are committed, you can easily get more in. I know a couple of people that get up at 4AM so they can get a ride in before work. It's all about how hardcore you are.

    I made an athletic goal this year to bike more miles than I drive...the score as of last Sunday, December 04th is BIKE:4058 miles vs DRIVE: 3789 miles! At this rate I will reach my unique cycling goal. Setting this goal has "forsed" me to ride more than ever, my prviously year high miles was last year with just under 2000!:)

    I usually ride 20-30 miles per day on Monday thru Thursday. Then I try for about 100 miles over the weekend.

    About 60km per week. My bikes are not designed for long commutes, but stretches of 10km at a time are just fine.

    What about Kestrel, you pay for their name also.

    I know that Trek is not the best but we all can have opinions ,like your opinions toward Kestrel

    By 300 miles a week do you mean a good pace (20-25 MPH)

    Or the usual slow pace (16-18 MPH)

    P.S: I don't have my Trek yet so that's why Im not riding more.

    See you at the Polar Bear Metric Century

    Over the past 3 years, I've averaged 109.7 road miles/week...miles are easier to get with bike-able weather year-round in this part of Texas...

    Really depends where I'm at in my training plan and how much racing I've been doing. Probably at the most, 500 to 600 km and the least maybe 100 km.

    How hardcore you are? I get up at 04:30 7 days per week to go straight to work. I usually don't get home until around 20:00. After that, since my family live down in Australia and I work in Malaysia, I have to do all the normal stuff associated with living (cooking, cleaning...).
    I'm pretty happy that I manage to get any riding in at all with that schedule. If I knock off early at 18:00 to get a ride in, I know I'm going to pay for it the next day with the build-up of work. Does that mean that my work is "hardcore"? Shit, if I'm so hardcore at working, perhaps I should try to do it as a professional....

    Well it seems the inspiration never leaves here :D. I'm usually good for a 100 -125 miles a week. I should of course fit it more but sometimes one has to fit in a life in between bike rides ;). Working towards my first century in Sept.


    Peace,
    Dz

    Life does have a funny way of intruding on one's plans. :(

    KM's don't count...it's MILES mate, MILES! ;)

    I'm averaging 5000-5500 miles/year, and that includes the downtime for the crappy weather we have here in the NE U.S. (cold, snowy winters, rain half of the rest of the time), so I really have to make up for it in the summer-fall months.
