How often do you ride a bicycle?

Biking is a popular sport among RVers. Many RVers carry their bikes with them on their travels (and thank goodness for the invention of small, folding bikes!) to ride around the campgrounds or local trails. What a great way to see the country!

Whether or not you have a bike of your own, or carry one with you in your RV, we want to know how often you ride one. Many campgrounds and RV parks provide bikes to ride during one’s stay and, of course, many cities and towns have countless places to rent bikes too.

Please tell us by voting in the poll below. Thank you and happy riding!

I had to say never, but that’s because I had my Trek® mountain bike stolen a couple years ago and really haven’t found one I liked to replace it. We have considered E-Bikes.

At 80 and still going I try to either Mtn. Bike, Road, Gravel, Fat Bike(snow) or XC Ski every day, don’t always make it but the intent is there still!

In my teen years I pedaled all over the East Bay, but I haven’t ridden since.

The poll didn’t have the option I would click on. I needed a Ride Every Day button.

As of today, I have ridden my bike once a day for 9,893 days in a row.

Thanks for making my day by asking that question 😉

I use to bike several times a week and did many century, half century and metric centuries. Now I find out that a birth defect is causing me pain in my hip. Of all of my outside interest’s this is the only activity that I had to totally stop. My best total mileage for the year was around 8,500 miles with most years peddling an average of 7,000 miles. An electric assist bike does not interest me, I look at it as cheating.

Been some years that have peddled a bike, there sitting in the basement like new. Grand kids hate bikes they are into hover boards. So invested in two 49cc (gas) scooters and think they are the only way to go. Next time around will be electric.

Being in Wisconsin, I’m not riding my bike right now but, in warmer weather I ride once a week. That starts out at 10 miles the first week then add 5 miles a week until I’m generally doing 25-30 miles. I’m in no hurry as I ride for the exercise, the scenery & the wildlife. My bike is 20+ years old and I should replace it as it has no suspension. It does though have a two-piece seat that puts your weight on your butt cheeks rather then your crotch. Cool literally & figuratively.

Ride often in the summer. Not in northern Minnesota in January. Though I did bike/trike commute to work year round before retirement.

Going to bite the bullet and buy two electric assist bicycles.

We bought his and hers Lectric Bikes (https://lectricebikes.com/) . last July and love them. We now have over 900 miles collectively on the bikes and honestly if it wasn’t an electric bike we would not have had the opportunity of riding on beautiful trails, on the ocean sand and many other beautiful adventures (https://flic.kr/p/2k7zGBM)!

Sadly, haven’t gotten on my bike in years. Wifey and I have low-tech mountain bikes purchased in 1986. We brought them here to Quartzsite several years ago in hopes of using them to go Geocaching. Ended up walking them as much as riding them due to ‘sand traps’ and uber rocky terrain. I think that was the last time we rode them – anywhere!

I used to a lot in my younger days, even got into driving a small motorcycle. Unfortunately, having MS has put a damper on being able to ride anymore.

Over the years we had folding bikes that would fit in our single engine Cessna Skylane and we took them to the Bahamas several times and Id a few. Now my wife can’t ride anymore and I have a hard time with hills and headwinds so I bought an Ele Rad bike and just love it. Still get exercise but hills and head winds are no problem anymore.

The wife and I have a tandem and love to ride it. Like others have said we do not get to ride nearly enough.

My wife wanted a trike, we bought it, then she wanted me to get one, I did, then she wanted it powered I got two electric conversion kits, then her daughter who started all this bought an electric 3 wheeled scooter, we had to get them, I inherited her first one that was a Chinese POS, the one she has now is nice, i got the chance to sell mine, she still has hers I love that I’m bike less and scooter less after 3 years of hauling that stuff around. Now I’ve got 2 cargo racks that fit into the receiver hitch sitting in the back yard. At 78 with a bad knee, I’m happy that’s all over with.

My husband and I each have bicycles with pedal assist and love them. We still get exercise and can make it up the hills!

Never learned to ride a 2 wheel bike. Now, as an old lady, I have a 3 wheeler. Love it!
