Annual PISSING CONTEST: Your mileage 2022

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Strava reports: 2,876.0 miles.
However, a dying battery in the Edge 1000 caused me to miss the latter parts of some rides until I finally replaced the battery.

6,090 miles, 363,000 feet. all outdoors, commutes excluded. (probably 150 4-mile round trip commutes, so it hardly would’ve mattered)

suspiciously close to my targets…

Actual real miles? Is that like cow milk compared to oat or soy milk? You must live in a warm climate since many people don’t have that luxury unless you really pile on the miles before the snow flies and take 4 months off.

Real miles. Wow, what a concept.

Strava says 6857.3 mi - all outside (not that I care how anyone gets their mileage, I just don't enjoy indoor stuff). I was on track to break 7000 (again) but I ended up with covid and missed an entire week, then had to work back in slowly to make sure I didn't drop dead in case there were any heart issues.

Combined real and fake miles, along with a job, a family, and very little riding Feb-May due to kid's sports schedule. There was an illness episode in there, too. Numbers should be up for 2023.

Strava says 5,977 miles. I'm sure I had well over 23 off-the-books commuter/utility miles but dang, you'da thought I'd have paid more attention to the numbers and gone for a joyride just to even things up.

RUSA km's were 5,383, which is a new high for me by 170 km.

Real roads, no zwift.

Outdoor only. I don't own a trainer. But to be fair, I do live in a place where you can ride year round--southern Ontario.

About 1500 km less than last year, and 500 less than 2020.

Somewhere in the range of 6-7,000 miles each outdoor and indoor. I live in a part of the world where the climate demands some level on indoor training! .

OK I kid, but TBH I got more saddle time in this morning on Zwift (~3 hours) than I otherwise would have, given that it was dark and raining at 5:30 this morning in San Diego. That's a win in my book, and whether or not it "counts" is secondary to the fact that I got a good ride in! My legs certainly notice a difference.

wtf are you talking about? I spent the last five years in a place with nasty winters (much snow and cold weather) and averaged >6600 miles each year. And anyone who follows a few Zwift and Peloton riders knows that those systems significantly exaggerate speed and distance for any ride -- which may be Bob Ross 's point.

Zwift miles are faster than real miles for sure. Except - for my power I am faster IRL on a smooth flat course on my TT bike than in Zwift . Zwift has not done any aero optimization on my avatar like I have IRL!

You are absolutely right. I was out of line.

I get the feeling of moral superiority from many people who solely ride outdoors whom have never experienced modern interactive trainers and how demanding they can be. I ride outside as much as possible but can state that many of the trainer ‘miles’ I do (whether they are accurate distance-wise or not) are far more difficult and draining than many outdoor rides. The trainer workouts help with fitness, endurance and aerobic capacity and actually enhance outdoor miles. If both help accomplish the same end; fitness, health and quality of life, I don’t see the superiority of one over the other, other than esthetics. Again for the record, I do prefer riding outdoors. Whereas I didn’t do as many miles as you, hitting an exceeding my goal is good enough for me. But then this thread is about, “mine is bigger than yours”, so yours is bigger. Now ask me if I really care if anyone’s is bigger than me reaching my own goal. Of course you are more than entitled to your opinion about relative distances. To me, it is an argument about nothing of any real consequence. If it is consequential to you, then great. Have a nice evening.

WTFx2

You seem to have read things into my post which are just not there.

I was merely pointing out that, contrary to your assertions, it is possible to ride 6600mi per year in a less-than-ideal climate, and there is a difference (mileage-wise) between indoor and outdoor miles.

I don't give a damn where or how you ride. I have neither asserted (nor implied) any sort of "moral superiority" for outdoor vs indoor miles. Hell, I haven't even posted my miles for 2022, much less given any sort of breakdown -- because I'm not comparing myself to others.

GTA area! We don't have the same chance here in the NCR. Even cross-country skiing has been challenging this winter due to the sh*tty weather we have since Dec 30th.

Good job on the 19k year - that is a lot!

I rode 43 km on new year's eve, and then realized afterwards when I saw my annual total that I was 1 km shy of 19k...trying not to be so OCD about it I let it slide.
