    For the first time in a few years I have decided against a target mileage for 2019 .

    Just going to try and get out as often as I can and enjoy the miles .

    It's not really cycling.
    E bike miles don't count either.

    Thank you for clarifying the rules.

    In that case I would like to do somewhere between 400-450 hours on a bicycle this year.

    Having only starting this week, this year getting anywhere near 2016 would be a great result, as the last 2 years went nowhere.

    I'm at around 350 miles. Weather not helping my cause

    I have done a fair few hours on the gym bike as well though ;)

    I'm not sure they count.


    EDIT - I've set myself a target of 1,750 miles because that is what I ought to do if I commute every day - so if I miss any days, I have to make them up to keep on target. Would like to do more though.

    I'm now up to 80 hours and 1,452 'miles', mostly carried out indoors due to weather. I have taken to outdoors when the session and weather allow.

    I know and I'm not counting them in any mileage target. I'm only really using it on the advice of my physio as I'm rehabbing after knee surgery

    Target 3000 miles this year, and 357 up to today. All on an ebike - the miles count for me just as much as miles did on a conventional bike. Maybe more. Lets hope you never find yourself in the position of needing assistance to continue riding.

    Reiver Ribbit, Ribbit.

    1663 mile as of today - all out doors under my own steam and all on 1980s steel,
    target 6131 so currently on a miles per day basis I'm 37.5% ahead of target
    if I can keep my current pace up I will make Antarctica passing NZ on 22 september

    This is my approach this year, I have deleted my Strava account to stop comparisons with previous years and other riders.

    6131 miles, why, that's about 16.797260274 miles per day. (Why such a specific target, if you don't mind me asking?)

    EDIT - is it because it's a prime number? Are you doing prime number targets in series - that would be cool (unless the next one is huge, of course!)

    EDIT 2 - next prime after 6131 is 6133, so not much of a leap!
