    Leave early, come home late...I have done it (a time or two, not all summer) and it's miserable but with a 5 gallon hydration pack it's do-able.

    I seem to be on bi-weekly alternation of Saturdays doing XC and/or DH.

    I'd love to commute, but I'm not quite crazy enough for that. 80km per day taint practical.

    I haven't ridden much, but as the days get drier, I will ride more. I hope to get some sweet weekends soon as well as the commuting.

    I ride 5-6 days a week. Everyday when its dry and not too cold. A mix of commuting, street/park, and some dirt.

    3-4 X a week, maybe more if it's a race weekend, maybe less (usually week after race weekend).

    Right now, down to 4 or so days a week. Work has picked up these last few weeks, so am busier during the day...

    Just picked up new lights today. That will free up some night trail-riding time :) a few nights per week, on top of the weekend shuttle Sat's and long XC Sun's, and urban or trail during the week.

    i don't ride so much anymore due to the fact that my bike is generally in a state of disrepair and i have no money. i do try to get out a handful of times every season though.

    generally my time outdoors is spent doing other activities like climbing or hiking. i think i may also start trail running this summer.

    Twice a week.

    Night ride once, morning ride once.

    But planning a wedding and working two jobs has me on lock down. Once this all blows over and I'm back to a normal 40 hours a week, it's ON.
