For how long?

Postby Shine_Spirit » Sun May 14, 2017 2:45 pm

When you decide to ride a bike... For how long do you guys enjoying the ride and get exercising?

The time for me is a variant that I can't calculate accurately because it depends a lot on my mood or my goal, but in general... I never get less than 1 hour. If I stay less than an hour, I get a little annoyed (like I'm missing something :lol: ).

Do you have a specific time?

For me it is always maximum for a hour. Do you high temperature here in my country riding for long usually leaves me dehydrated.

When the temperature conditions are favourable then it is for about one and a half hour..

Mostly I won't stop riding my bike for less than two hours. This is compulsory and after two hours the riding entirely depends on my mood. Now it is summer season in our place and the temperature is too high as we couldn't even walk. So now I don't usually ride my bike in the morning hours. If the weather is a bit cloudy and cool then there is no time limit for me :)

There are factors that normally determine how long I stay on a bike when I ride. First my mood, if I am happy or catching the fun as I expected then I could be on the ride for hours going round before retiring back home. Also if I am out on a ride with more experienced persons I am motivated to do that for long

I would also say that the minimum would be an hour less than that seems to be too little time and would feel incomplete. When I go for a bike ride I like to take my time and try to free my mind of everything else and just focus on what's around me. I will ususally take two hour rides when I'm going for a serious bike ride to fully head home relaxed.

I am a leisure biker and I think the longest trip I had on the bike is 30 kilometers or so. It is very tiring for me since I only ues the bike inside our village. And although biking is a good exercise, I just cannot bike for long because I have so many things to do. Besides, I'm afraid that my muscles couldn't take the rigid pressure of biking long distances so I am trying to be kind to my feet.

Its starts to heat up here a lot this time of year so I would start early and go for at least a hour bike ride,also I make sure I drink plenty of water as well. I like to combine biking and other activities as well like the utilitarian style to grocery shop and other productive activities, and not just the weekend warrior style of riding my bike. I would rather stay out a longer time on my bike as well,than just race as fast as I can though.

I generally spend 2-3 hours for road biking although I am no more a regular on biking lately. I used to go for long rides in the past but I have done that seldom in recent times. I agree that now I have better opportunities and a better bike but due to shortage of time I go for a long biking once in a month or so. Most of my biking is limited to park in front of my house although if I get a good company I won't mind biking 100 km or so.

If I am having a very good time with the ride I am not worried how long I stay riding. what matters to me at that time is not satisfaction and sense of accomplishment.
