How many miles can I ride a bike in a day?
The average individual conducting a long-distance bicycle tour will cycle between 40 and 60 miles (64 – 96 kilometers) each day. However, distances both shorter and longer than this are quite common. 40 to 60 miles is the average daily distance recommended for most bicycle tourists.
The average adult (that means all the adult riders averaged together) rides a bike about 14 miles per hour at all times, not top speed. Keep in mind that there are adults that ride MUCH faster than the average which skews it somewhat.

- 20km/h (12.4 mph) - many "occasional" cyclists ride around this speed. 25km/h (15.5 mph) - most commuters. 30km/h (18.6 mph) - fast commuters, slower roadies.
- about 10 miles per hour
Well, considering exercise bikes don't actually go anywhere, it'll take a long, long time … Seriously though, there's no good answer to this question. An average person at an average pace can probably do about 10 miles per hour, so they'd cover a mile in about 6 minutes.
- Average. The official Spin site claims a person pedaling at an average rate of 80 to 110 revolutions per minute for a 40-minute class covers approximately 15 to 20 miles. Based on this estimate, you'll cover between 22.5 and 30 miles in an hour if you go at an incredibly aggressive rate.
- Most agree Bolt wouldn't be able to break the world record set by Morocco's Hicham El Guerrouj. He ran the mile in 3:43.13 in 1999. Bolt, meanwhile, who holds the world records in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes (9.58 and 19.19, respectively), takes 2:10 to run 800 meters. That's a snail's pace relative to Guerrouj.
- 2. Convert pace to speed, and speed to pace both mile and km.

Riding 10,000 miles in a year is no small feat for the amateur cyclist. If eking out a few lunch rides a week takes a toll on your schedule, clocking an average of nearly 200 miles weekly (roughly 27 miles a day) is an intimidating prospect—but it's not impossible.
- First time moms, if left alone to go into labor naturally tend to be pregnant for about 41 weeks and 1 day. Women who've had babies before tend to deliver around 40 weeks and 3 days. Only about 10% of women go longer than 42 weeks. That's average.
- Before 37 weeks is considered pre-term, and the baby has a better chance of survival the closer they are able to get to 37 weeks. Babies born at 24 weeks have a 50% chance of survival, while that chance jumps all the way up to 92% at 29 weeks.
- In cases involving conditions like preeclampsia, early delivery might even be the safest option. But there are still risks for babies born before full term. At 36 weeks, a baby is considered late preterm. The risk is much lower from babies born even at 35 weeks.
