Does Commuting Count?

So I’m riding, but not riding at the moment. I’ve never been convinced that commuting really counts as riding, clearly it is turning pedals and moving along on two wheels, but it’s not the same as going for a ride. Last month with three proper mountain bike rides and almost daily commuting I clocked up just over 100 miles, which is actually more than last April so perhaps things aren’t as bad as they seem. That said looking at the calendar and lots of busy weekends ahead, unless there’s some decent midweek riding May is going to be a bit of a non-event in terms of biking too. Must make more effort…

  1. Mate. Of course it counts! I get the majority of my miles through commuting (through the countryside of course!) – I do tend to detour from the direct route unless I’m on recovery and each ride is between 9 and 20 miles. That and a couple of lunchtimes a week and I’m easily getting over 100 miles a week; My major difference is that I don’t have lots of spare time on the weekends for epic rides so I manage with a couple or three hours early on a Sunday morning to top things off. That said, last month was 561 miles, March was 621. Roll on the Etape!
