How far can an average person bike in a day?
I'm 23. I'm fit. I've got a decent hybrid bike. I can do eight miles in 25 minutes, but wonder if it's reasonable to think I can do that for a long period of time...
If you're doing 8 miles each way to work, daily, then you are in pretty good shape already. The question is, Philly to Cleveland, would you be camping or credit-carding. Roughly figure something in the 50-100 miles per day range, but much depends on whether you're in a hurry or feeling touristy.
Here are two good sites to check out:
My boyfriends father rides 20 miles or more every day. If he can do it, you can.
The most I've ever ridden in one day was 15 miles, and I was tired afterwards. The owner if the bike shop I go to told me he has ridden 100 miles in a day!
There ya go buddy! Git-R- Done! My hubby says he do 18 miles in 45 minutes on my Devinci which is a 24 speed mountain bike. Not sure what you men by an average person but this is what my husband can do!
At your age, you can easily match my best, which is 200 miles in 18 hours. I don't know what "hybrid" you're riding, but I rode a Cannondale 18-speed road bike, and you could get a Trek if you want, and, with some training maybe, you can match my best, and even go for the 300 mile mark in 24 hours. We cyclists consider "a day" as 24 hours, and we call the 100 mile mark a "century", the 200 mile mark a "double century" and, obviously, the 300 mile mark a "triple century". At your age, with your fitness, some training could get you to the very special mark of "double century" and the very special mark of "triple century". And yes, it can be done. There used to be a bicycle race called the Race Across America, and the qualifying ride was a "triple century" since the race was NON-STOP from the east coast to the west coast, and the next year, back from west to east. You can do it!!! Don't deny yourself that special achievement. You'll LOVE the feeling. God Bless you.
never know til you try. I never thought I do a 130 in one day but I did...twice!
for your trip: would you be toting camping gear with you or carrying a credit card for checking into accommodations? hucking all that gear will significantly effect how far and how fast you can go.
if you work up to it, 100 miles in a day is an attainable goal for most people, but a 400+ mile tour is a different kettle of fish, plan on 60 - 70 miles per day once your able to ride a century as a single day event. you will know that you've been on the bike, but won't be too wiped to ride the next day.
