The Restless Fly

Riddle:

Two cyclists began a training run, one starting from Moscow and the other starting from Simferopol.

When the riders were 180 miles apart, a fly took an interest. Starting on one cyclists shoulder, the fly flew ahead to meet the other cyclist. After reaching him the fly then turned around and yet back. 

The restless fly continued to shuttleback and fourth until the pair met; then settled on the nose of one rider.

The flys speed was 30 mph. Each cyclist speed was 15 mph.

How many miles did the fly travel?

Answer:

The cyclists took 6 hours to meet. The fly traveled 6*30=180 miles.
