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.

About 2000-3000 a month.

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?
JSA - on 29 Jan 2013
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: 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

In reply to JSA:

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.

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 reply to JSA:

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.

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.

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!
