Pinkbike Poll: How Many Days Did You Ride This Year?

Dec 28, 2018
by Daniel Sapp  

As 2018 comes to a close, it's a good time to reflect back on the year and reminisce. I'd suspect a lot of people had goals at the beginning of the year to ride further, faster, or in more places than in years past. Hopefully, everyone who set goals in some way attained them or bettered themselves, and if you didn't reach one of your goals then hopefully you at least had a good time and did your best.

One of the most simple metrics of all that directly ties into goals that many people, myself included, had must be, "How many days did you ride a bike this year?" We all know that almost any day, hour, or minute on the bike is some of the best time spent.

What constitutes a ride? It's different for everyone, but I would say that it's getting on your bike with some intention and going somewhere. It doesn't have to be far. You may have or have not formally tracked the ride with Strava or another app, but if you went somewhere, it's a ride. Let's leave the indoor trainer out of this.

 I ride every weekend so 52 weeks in a year multiplied by 2 because two days in a weekend = 104 Days plus or minus ten for days I didnt ride or extra day I did!

 Strava is not a great place to look, it shows rides not days. Many people post multiple rides/activities in a day. Multiple rides, shuttle laps, park laps. The Trailforks 'My Ridelog' page and stats groups these and shows a day counter. For example I did 195 ridelogs this year (231 on Strava) but only 148 unique days.

 I guessed. Strava confirmed.

 @canadaka: The big question is how many "not on Trail Forks" trails did you post and give up.
Strava and My Ride Log just allow anyone to post trails that they have done nothing to contribute to.

Hopefully your Ride log and Strava Warriors donate large to the local trail association.

  • + 11
 @Yaan: none, not true.
Trailforks automatically detects if one rides a secret or hidden trail and makes the entire rides location and map info private. Overriding the users manual action of making a ridelog private, as some users can't be trusted to have discretion or just forget, so it's automated. But it still allows the ride to count towards your yearly aggregated statistics. Those type of rides I just don't post to Strava since they don't have the same functionality. If I do its set private on Strava. I also don't have a public Strava account, and only approve IRL friends.

Trailforks has a lot of functionality to reduce exposure to illegal or secret trails, something Strava does nothing to reduce.

Using my Ridelog history for the year, I donate to the trail associations I've ridden the most. Along with holding membership to 3 associations. It's all public on my Trailforks profile.

But more riders need to donate to local trail associations, there is no doubt about that. That's something Trailforks trys to promote and change the culture of.

 @canadaka: It is very easy to count your riding days in your training diary on strava. I did that and found out, that my guess was way to low. It was around 35 to 40, but the truth is 60.

 Stupid injuries, stupid rain, stupid work. Started the year out right with a 15+ mile ride around Cleveland in 5 degree (Fahrenheit) weather on my pink single speed. Sweating and freezing, bad combination. Followed by a four month wait for the trails to open. Then got some good riding in but managed to crash several times training for a race that would let me ride familiar trails in reverse. Long story short, sat out the last two months nursing injuries. This past week finally got out and it hurt. Really sucked the fun out of it.

 I only answered for mountain biking. I ride to work almost every day, but it's not on my mountain bike and it's a pretty short ride. I actually have no idea how many days I rode, even on my mountain bike. I do a lot of quick morning rides with the dog, but never count them.

 Dislocated my shoulder in January, but managed to recover pretty quick and got back on the bike in ~3 months. I then rode loads until I broke 3 ribs and got concussion in a big crash at a bike park in early August Frown

 Broke my wrist (hiking FFS!) and then, once back on the bike, sprained it and injured it worse than the break. I've only ridden half the distance I did last year.

If you ride MTB, its 'when', not 'if'. Every now and then you gotta pay the MTB gods in scrapes, sprains, breaks and tears. They are cruel gods who will always get their dues, but when they smile upon you this sport is sweet.

 I broke my humerus a couple years ago. That sucks so much harder than it should. What's worse was the constipation from the pain killers they gave me. Finally quit taking the meds so I could take a dump. No surgery for me, though, thankfully. Heal up guys.

 The pain was out of this world. Funny thing night after surgery i collapse at home was rush to the ER cause it was bleeding a lot from the fresh scar, spend the night there under observation. Two days after again at the ER my arm was blue and yellow and big like my leg, the pressure inside was insane, it took some medication and whent away. Oh i am all good now !

 @St1234: I took 6 or 7 months off. Probably could have started riding a little sooner, but I tore the heck out of the ligaments and stuff, and was just kinda scared to ride again. It took probably 4 months just to be able to lift my hand above my shoulder. Like you said, it hurt like hell.

 All you guys getting injured; I know there’s the odd accident, but, speaking from my own experience, have you considered turning off strava/raceface/whatever it is that makes you go 2% above your limit?

Go search for flow instead of outright speed, enjoy the scenery and wildlife, prove yourself only to yourself, and your cycling days will be plentiful.

 @kmg0: In the last 8 years I’ve been mountain biking seriously, I’ve only had a single serious wreck while to trying to go fast on a Strava downhill.

 I'm on 282 days this year and will be on the bike every one of the remaining 3 so will end on 285. Not surprising really when I use a bike to commute, nip to the shops, go to the gym and ride on free days as a hobby. Any day I don't ride a bike actually feels really weird! Have managed to avoid any injuries that stop me riding too so that helps the total.

 Being honest I kinda fell out of love with riding this year! Not sure why just did, I’ve ridden MTB for 30 years and a lot of dh in that time, this year I thought I’d take a break and try something else (coastal stuff as I live near the ocean). Being honest it’s been a nice balance trying other stuff, I’ll still ride and enjoy it but not get caught up in trying to be the best I can be, I’d rather be more rounded in other activities if that makes sense

 After moving to London in june, no much cycling other than commuting. Double decker bus trapped me against the curb, making me crash in the sidewalk. Then that bike got stolen and now I ride one I found. A new Process 153 and trips to Madeira and Ainsa make up for all that crap.

 "I don't want to count because it's embarrassing".......I used to ride like every day. That's what happens I guess. I think you're correct in never stopping something, I wish I never stopped, like once you start what's the point in stopping?

 One thing that happened with me was my desire really fell through the floor. Bicycling was always the highlight of my day three years old, until like seventeen. Something within me really changed since then. I want it to be the highlight of my day just as it used to be, but I can't manage it anymore.
  • + 1
 If your counting, your doing it wrong. It's not the days rode in a year that count, but the ride itself. More good rides than bad for me, with another year full of great memories with friends on bikes. Hope for the same or better in 2019!
  • + 1
 Not nearly enough, that's for sure! I work 2 jobs, and do side jobs on top of those... so when I get to ride the stars have really aligned. My usual work week is 70-90 hours. If there's enough red bull in the gas station down the road, I'll pound one or 3 and get in some mileage. LOL

 Got a mountain bike a year ago and have been an addict ever since. I’m on my fourth bike and got 157 rides in so far this year. I didn’t ride for a month, recovering from a hernia surgery.

 You should try living in the UK. If you didn't ride when it rained you'd not ride much at all.
  • + 2
 @lukeb: Actually, I don't mind riding in the rain. It is just that I'm aware that this accelerates erosion and I'm trying to avoid that. The good thing about places with loads of rain is that the terrain is adapted to it so no one will frown upon you if you hit the wet trails. Not saying I prefer my trails groomed and smooth but I know there are people putting time and effort to make them like that so I don't want to mess that up. That said, you can usually find a place to ride that is just fit for the conditions. If it is really wet the more clay type trails may be out of bounds but the sandy trails are perfect whereas in dryer times it is the other way around. And the skills park and pump track usually are fine whether it is wet or dry.

 @PtDiddy: The question wasn't how many rides but how many days.
  • + 1
 The issue is definition of a "day" on he bike. I used to live in a mountain resort, we defined a "day" on the bike or on skis as a minimum of 45 mins, mountain biking had to be off road, skiing had to be on or off piste. My goal in both sports was to try for a minimum of a century, anything after that was gravy!
  • + 1

 Does each commute count as a ride? If so I do around 260 rides to work at 5 in the morning and 260 rides home in an afternoon. Add the 20+ mtb rides at weekends and I'd be on 540+!
  • + 2
 The question is on how many days did you ride, so 365 is your limit. Think of each day as one ride with a 7~8 hour “rest” in the middle. ;-)

  • + 1
 @azureblue: yeah, I worked that out eventually! Didn't actually look at the numbers we could choose from. Went for 251-275 in the end.
  • + 2
 Yeah, I clicked before I read the article Wink . I limited myself to BMX and MTB riding days which would be just over 200 or so (which is what I clicked). Mind you I don't do epic rides. A typical MTB ride is just under 90 minutes, a BMX ride on the pumptrack is very often limited to a 30 minute blast. But other than a few weeks away (without bike), maybe sick or just very busy doing stuff at home, I'm pretty much every day on a bike. Commuting, bringing the kids to school (or wherever we want to go), shopping, just a casual ride for no reason... 300 days would still be on the low side. And most of these days I ride more than twice (so more than just to work and straight back to home). Obviously this is way much easier for me living in The Netherlands which is relatively flat and which has a safe and efficient cycling infrastructure. I understand this just doesn't work like that for everyone. So this number is just that. A number without sensible context.

TL;DR: 200 or so.

 My answer isn't accurate because I ride for transportation as well, so between serious and non serious rides I'm at 365 days a year.

 I've been basically off a bike since July when I decided I hated my wrist and thought I would teach it a lesson.

 Next poll: elevation gained...

Where you live would have a big effect, here in the wasatch I get ~300-350k per year.

 E-bike, does that count as riding?

 Much more than shuttling...

 @konamat: but when you're shuttling you at least riding a bicycle down the hill,right?

 @Muckal: Is riding only down real riding at all? Gotta get up to get down.
  • + 1
 @konamat: i think so, yeah. Riding down is what it's about to me. Getting up, mostly riding up under my own power, is not the most fun part.

 @Muckal: Make it fun, go electric.

 @konamat: yeah, maybe when i turn 60 or so. If i wanted to ride moto i'd rebuild my old smoker.

 @brncr6: Post work rides? Night lights?
  • + 1
 @gnarnaimo: my thoughts exactly. Everybody has a choice, at least some times a week. If you choose not to ride (aka i can't go riding today, because...), that's ok. Just stop complaining. Sometimes i put the lights on and go for a ride after work in the wintertime darkness at 0 degrees celcius. Sometimes i choose to sit on the couch and watch something stupid on TV, but it's not like i could not, i simply choose not to.
  • + 1
 Exactly! I have 260 rides this year and more than half of them are during the week, either before work, after, or a rare lunch ride. I make riding a priority and I get my rides in. It keeps me balanced. I can't think of a time when I didn't feel better after a ride! Maybe after I strained my wrist a Creek this year but still loved riding that Pro GRT course..... I do feel bad for people that can only go on the weekends, must be torture.
  • + 1
 @gnarnaimo: I leave my house at 5 a.m. weeknights are pretty much dedicated to my son and his boy scouts, baseball, home work ect. So no early morning rides or night riding for me at this time in life. My bikes will always be around but my son will only be young for so long.
  • + 2
 @brncr6: Fair enough. Still ultimately a choice. I work full time and am still getting 1-3 week day rides in during the wet, dark winter. 'Work' alone is no excuse!! @Jaguar83
  • + 2
 @gnarnaimo: yep my ultimate choice is my son 1st.
  • + 1
 @brncr6: Which makes you a responsible parent, and is part of the reason I'm not having kids! Haha
  • + 1
 @Jaguar83: I work and have two kids I still had 150ish rides this year.
  • + 3
 @gnarnaimo: I never wanted kids but the best thing to happen in life is my son. Best days of my life are days riding with my son. His 1st chair lift and following him down the mountain and seeing how well and how much fun he was have is a highlight of my life.

 @brncr6: I can appreciate that! Snowboarding with my little 6 year old nephew is one of the coolest experiences.. However I like the uncle thing, much easier!
