/ How many miles do you travel?
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.
About 2000-3000 a month.
Wow. Do you enjoy it? Pretty sure I wouldn't.
Yes but being stuck in an office beats being stuck on M6 ;-)

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 :)
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.
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.
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.
About 300 miles a month. All by bike unless it's icy.
Living in Dundee but with a job based in MK-- and doing a job that involves flying around giving papers and seminars-- I travel a fair bit.
At the end of 2012 I got my diary out and added it up for the year; it came to 75000 miles. That's half way to the moon!
currently a return commute of approx 65 miles, 5 days a week normally tho round christmas and easter this goes upto 6 or 7 days a week so 325 to/from work normally but upto 400.. plus anywhere between 10 and 150 on a weekend depending where i end up...
About 20 couch to fridge (and back) trips a week
