How many miles is your average weekend ride?

I usually find 2-3 hours on the bike is enough at one go. My lawyer suggests I not convert that into miles for you.

Figure an hour or so to get a good distance out of town, then an hour or 90 mins of spirited riding, then an hour home. Others?

150ish anytime (that's katy to pearland via hwy, and back up crabb or Katy to Yankees and back) Doesn't count bonus laps on RR.

Been on a couple Desmo Texas rides that were MUCH longer. Start the day 40miles from home at 7 or 8am, and not back home till 5 or 6. That includes lunch and rest stops every 100ish miles for those who have thirsty bikes. I couldn't even tell you where all we ended up though. Feeling pretty wasted and ready to sleep after that long of a ride though. They do these once a month, and I'd love to join them everytime... just need a nicer 2 cyl so i fit in a bit better.

I am green with envy. I'm lucky to sneak in an early morning ride before the kiddos get up and look for papa. I have to put in "extra credit" just to be allowed to go on the SMR till noon. But... I'd happy sell all my bikes and quit cold turkey tomorrow if my kids ask me to.

362 to 105. Ride the Forest and then back down 149 to 249 and home to Cypress. That is usually my solo ride.

I would demand a paternity test.

Highly variable, and this is an interesting question. Sometimes I take the bike out after work for maybe a half-hour around Sugar Land: 20-30 miles. Weekends give time for longer rides. Weather makes a difference for me: extremely hot or cold or windy tends to limit me. My hands are my major limit on riding time and distance. Being older is an issue: my body won't take the abuse. Breaks help.

I have had Saturdays where I ride close to 300 miles and just want to keep going. On the Guzzi my range has expanded compared to the Ninja due to high speed comfort. Now that it is broken in and fall is here: we will see. Time and energy limit my riding. My work is very demanding, and sometimes involve late nights, or erratic schedules. Life interferes with the obsession....so there you are.

Found a decent twisty road just near me, rode it back and forth probably 5 times. Just wish it was longer. Probably 100 miles for me a weekend. But my weekends can be pretty busy.

If you've seen my kids, you'd agree that would not be necessary. Unless I have a long-loss twin bro I don't know about that lurks around my house when I'm not around.
