A mile may be the most simple distance to measure, but it’s not the easiest. When we think about the distance from one end of a football field to the other, or from just past home plate to first base, we have an easier time measuring. But a mile? It might take someone who is cycling that distance up to 10 minutes!

That doesn’t sound very fast, does it? Letâ€™s do some better calculations and find out how long it actually takes you to bike a mile. This article will teach you how long it takes in minutes for someone on a bike to successfully bike one mile.

## The Stats

What is the average speed for biking a mile? The average speed for biking a mile is 8.5 miles per hour (mph).

The time it takes to bike the mile at this speed is **7 minutes and 4 seconds.**

### How Long Does It Take To Bike 10 Miles

We’re going to use a calculator to figure out how long it takes someone on a bike to cycle 10 miles.

First, we’ll input the distance of one mile into our calculator: 1 mile = 5280 feet = 1.609344 kilometers

Next, we’ll input the speed of 10 mph: 10 mph = 6.2 meters/sec

Time taken to travel 10 miles on a bicycle**: 1 hour**

### How Long Does It Take To Bike 5 Miles

First, we’ll input the distance of one mile into our calculator: 5 miles

Next, we’ll input the speed of 10 mph: 10 mph = 6.2 meters/sec

Time taken to travel 5 miles on a bicycle**: 30 minutes**

### How Long Does It Take To Bike 3 Miles

Using the same calculation methods above (10mph) it would be **18 minutes**

### How Long Does It Take To Bike 2 Miles

Using the same calculation methods above (10mph) it would be **12 minutes**
