That doesn’t sound very fast, does it? Let’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.

### 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
