Given that people don't believe us here shirkers, layabouts, colouring boys and disguised commuters don't cycle, what do you gents actually manage to get in a week?

Curiosity n all

    125-150 currently but I'm changing the metric and going for 10 hours plus a week with mostly zone 2 rides up to the New Year.

    My problem is lots or hardly any - never anything in between. Ie mid August to mid September 200 miles total, 30 days before then 900 miles

    Averages out at just over 100 miles a week

    Varies wildly. Sometimes hundreds, sometimes none.

    Averages 80+ as I do over 4000/year.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Sometimes 100 per week, sometimes less than 30. Between toots, work (physically tough), dodgy immune system and infections, it is intermittent. Ever since the little one's came on the scene, my outings have been much more frequent but much shorter.
    Both toots at primary school next August, so will have more time. Al being well, I won't be in this job much longer.

    56 a week, all commuting, no time for joy rides :( That still doesn't make me a commuter!

    I was going to award Flaneur special brownie points for coining Brackateer :D but a little research suggests the award goes to Frank the Tank back in 2012 with Bracketeer.

    31-65 miles and 0-5 hours for me currently. That includes downhill :)
