## / How many miles do you travel?

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
While on my way back to the yard tonight, I was pondering how many miles the average person travels in a month.

So how many miles do you travel each month?

I travel average somewhere between 11000 and 13000 miles each month.

(Air miles don't count!).

Take it you're a lorry driver or something?

I've done 3000 since early December

I travel about 400 - 500 miles in an average month, with a daily commute and a weekend trip to a crag.
In reply to JSA: wow that's loads! That's my travel in a year!

In reply to Southern Man: although I do work for a haulage company I tend to drive a few hundred miles more than the other drivers since I drive the pick up and not speed limited or tachographed.
In reply to JSA: is that a typo? about 400 miles a day?
In reply to thin bob: nope, not a typo, I average about 550 miles a day, sometimes travel over 700 in a day.

Wow. Do you enjoy it? Pretty sure I wouldn't.
In reply to jonny2vests: not really, though it certainly beats being stuck in an office ;)
In reply to JSA: Between 1000 and 2500 in a month depending on where my weekends take me... (work miles 1000-1500 per month)

Yes but being stuck in an office beats being stuck on M6 ;-)

In reply to JSA: Approx 2000 miles per week spread between 4 different vehicles.
In reply to JSA: about 10 in January! Circumstances have kept me close to home for a few months, hoping to do a bit more mileage in the coming months

Since the average speed of any road journey is likely to be 50mph or so maximum (depends how much open motorway you get to drive on) then that's 11 - 14hrs of driving *plus* loading and unloading times.

11k since July, mainly climbing trips

How is your back doing all those miles? And why are you not fat?
I don't drive so much, but if I'm in a car for longer than 4 hours my back gets sore.

I had a working road trip across the States last year, 2000 miles in 2 weeks (and lots of flights), I nearly went nuts driving in straight lines on the freeway.

A few hundred a month at most by car. Add about 1800 a week if you include air

In reply to JSA: only around 500 a week, it's quality not quantity though as most of it is round the Yorkshire dales

I did 36,000 miles last year (driving to Cape Town and back) and I thought that was a lot, clearly I am an amateur at this long distance driving lark.

In a month, about 200 miles? Nursery and gymnastics runs, that's the lot.
Rest of the time, my daughter and I are on the bike and trailer.

About 2,000 a month. 550 a day would drive me nuts - that's home to Fot William every day, just to turn round and come back the following day, back again the next and so on. I don't know how you do it!

Dunno, depends on the job. I have a 10 min jog to work, come & go when I please and enjoy it immensely.
it certainly beats being stuck in an office ;)
I felt sure you were going to say, beats being stuck in the traffic!
I have done 30,000 in my work van in 6 years! That's plenty for me. Although I do have a car for family and climbing trips.

In reply to JSA: About 160 by bike and then another 100 or so in the car.

Commute I do 550/wk so about 2.5k mth but only 100 business miles a month and a steady 1k personal miles per month so just over 3.5k miles per month I reckon.
In reply to JSA: I do about 12000 every 3 months, about 4000 a month averaged... For a student, that seems to be a lot, relative to other people but I don't really notice it.

About 300 miles a month. All by bike unless it's icy.
