    Hey everyone... I am trying to get an idea of what the average cyclist does in a week, and also how long you have been in the saddle. No real purpose to this, just curious :)


    I'll start...
    Time Cycling: 1st serious season
    Rides Per Week: 4
    Avg Miles Per Ride: 50
    Avg Hours Per Ride: 2.5

    Second year cycling
    Ride every day
    9-15 hrs per week
    170-230 miles per week
    20-60 miles a day
    1-4 hrs a day

    My average speeds are pretty pathetic, but most of my training is interval type, in which i recover at 10mph.

    Third season of more serious riding, and second season with my new ride. Been challenged the last month or so with a number of life things, so my numbers here would be a little bit down right now, but over the last two years:

    Miles/week: 175-250
    Miles/ride: 40-75
    Rides/week: 4-5
    Favorite ride: Rolling hills or mountains.

    I have a unique schedule, where I work from home Mondays and Fridays, so I use my lunch hour to ride. I can also start work earlier on those days (since I don't have my 90min commute) so that stretches the lunch hour out a bit.

    Anyway, I usually do something like this:

    Friday & Monday: 35mi @ 16-18mph avg.
    Saturday & Sunday: 65-70mi @ 15-17mpg avg.
    (there are no flat roads around here, and the summers are hot and humid)

    For Tue, Wed, and Thurs, I usually take 1 or 2 of the days off, and on the other days I have some short rides (15-25 miles) that I hammer out at close to a 20mph average.
