The wife and I ride XC (or is that AM now) four times a week during DST. Adds up to be about 6-7,000 feet / 35-50 miles of Front Range single track per week. Now that the lifts have opened the week-ends will include more DH and/or some longer XC stuff.

I hate non-ride days :madman: ...... But luckily today is a ride day :band:

So how many Mark Weir's (28,000 ft of vert. per week) do we have out there? What about weekend only warriors??

depends on the week for me. if i work that week, im lucky if i get to ride the road bike in. 2 weeks ago was a week off and clocked 125-150 in morning rides. next week is the hut trip which will be 250+.

It really depends on the Honey-Do list and work.
The last two weeks I was able to get out for about 200 miles. The two weeks before that I was working in Wisconsin and put in about 100 mi. The month before that I maybe put up about 50 miles.

August is going to be good for me. 10 days in Whistler and 12 days in N.C.:thumbsup:

I am the quintessential weekend warrior. Saturday and Sunday if I'm lucky. In the summer there have been weeks where I've gotten 4 days of riding in, but this is not normal.
I envy those that ride more than once or twice a week. Guess it's not that important that I'll wake up at 4 a.m. or ride at night. Work, family, all that jazz.

Weekend warrior. That's me.

I ride about 4-5 days a week, sometimes ST, sometimes urban, other times dirtjumping, I like it all. Fun to mix it up too, makes me a better overall rider and helps me forget the midwest is flat as hell :)

About the same as you, Steve...4 days a week. In the summer months where I live, some of that will be on a road bike...accck! In the milder months and in the winter I'll ride 4-5 times a week, usually all on an MTB...AM model of course.

the way my work schedule is, some weeks only once or twice, other weeks up to 5-6 days. i think i average something like 4.5 rides a week. at least when not injured or anything.

Saturdays, & Sundays are reserved for good long AM rides (I have to drive to all the good trails) These rides are a minium of 24 miles, usually more (almost all of the trails here are loops, that I know the exact distance of.)

During the week I'll do intervals on the road bike, or more likely, hit some urban stuff, or work on "skillz" like getting my bunnyhop higher/smoother..etc...

But I also mix it up, like this weekend I have a road century that I do every year, so I won't be getting the mountain miles in, or I'll take the downhill bike out....it's all good :)

3-5 trail rides a week, plus commuting someplace or another pretty much every day, as well as daily goofing off on my mini freeride park in my backyard. :thumbsup:

This year it was 5-6 days a week every week until I broke my rib a few weeks back. I still commute to work on my single, about 10 miles round trip every day. When I go out in the evening, which has been quite a lot so far, I take my bike too, another 4 or 5 miles round trip.

Definateely no Mark Weir, but I get the shakes if I don't get my riding fix a few times a week. :thumbsup:

not nearly enough. I havent been on a ride all week. I need to rebuild the master cylinder for the rear brake on my Marin and I;'ve been too busy. I've been avoiding riding my hardtail because the pedal bearings are shot and I'm not sure if they are going to fail in a bad way or not.
