    I've always kinda wondered how often people ride. I live in an area where there are no trials riders, so don't really have a frame of reference. Do you guys ride like every day? if so, for how long and such? im curious and bored

    I'm a beginner and I only practice about 20-25 minutes (and not all the days because I have exams and also I get tired because I don't make well the moves yet) I improving very slowly and I wish after the exams I could practice more and to learn how to do new movements...

    I try to go at least 3 times a week (weather permitting). When I do go, I ride/practice for at least 1.5 to 2 hours. I improved quite a bit by upgrading from a regular mountain bike to an actual trials bike. :bigthumb:

    Recently, being unemployed and uninjured, I have been riding 2-3 hours a day 5-6 days a week. I rest when I'm hurting too much, if I'm riding poorly or if the weather sucks.

    I usually ride everyday, take a day break every so often. Ride for a couple hours, say 1-2, but in spurts, so 1-2 now, break for an hour, ride another 1-2...bah...I haven't ridden for like the past 2 weeks cause of this hub issue, and now that it's fixed, it's a damn derailleur issue....damn gears....

    I used to ride a 2-3 times a week, couple hours each. Then I crashed and screwed up my thumb back in early May. Took a couple months off, and have only ridden 4-5 times since early July. Aside from trackstanding in the living room, I don't think I've done a ride in August.

    When ever I have time and I'm not busy hating my bike I try to ride. Some weeks every day others one day out of the week. If I'm riding by myself I ride for about 2 hours max but when im with other people riding usually 4-7 hours of ride time including riding between spots.

    I try and ride 2 times a week, if I am lucky 3 times, working and having a wife really cuts in ridin time. If I am on break from teaching I can get 4 times a week in. I try and ride about 1.5 hours at a time. If I have someone to ride with I can go 4+ hours easy.

    If you want to really improve on your small moves and balance, just ride consistantly, whether its everyday for 30mins, or 3 times a week for 2 hours at a time. Its the irregularity of my riding that hurts my improvement.

    i try to ride every day, usually 1-2 hours but I recently met some other people that ride so I will probably go on some longer rides now.
