    How far and long have you guys ridden? I had to ride my bike nearly all day long every day as a kid, but as far as long trips, how many miles?

    I've gone at least 25 miles on a track that was pretty hard to endure...

    I could say the longest I have ridden is probably 5 hours straight...?

    The longest 1 day trip was 147 miles. I cant remember how long it took but, I it was pretty tough. And then the next day I rode 100 more miles. Oh, and then the next day after that. Its a ride that I do every year called "scride4life.com" Check it out sometime.

    100 miles, I was going to go for a 110 mile ride a couple years ago but decided to break my toe instead. :mad:

    252 miles in 24 hours and 375 miles in 38 hours (I did get a bit of sleep on that).

    How long should you wait after doing once century (100 miles) ride before doing another one? Easy, as long as it takes to refill your bottles, apply sun screen, stretch and get back on the bike. Keep those pedals turning folks.
