    How many miles have you done in one day on your cruiser

    I did 60 miles one day on my Worksman 3 speed.

    I had some fun while down in Miami New Years Day last year... I took my rental car back to Miami Airport & road back on my Sawyer to my Hollywood beach Hotel...cruising thru downtown Miami then out to the beaches covering about 40 miles.

    Maybe 15-18 miles on my fat tire cruiser. Longest on an upright bike with a IGH is 60 miles. Most day long rides stay in the 40 mile range.

    Last June or July, 98 miles on my single speed riding from Louisville to Lexington
    The speed is break neck, faster than a high speed dual cassette tape deck.

    About 132 miles, my first 200k (I think it's 211k or so). I did the Hotter-n-Hell 100 twice (100 mile version), one solo century, one 107-mile permanent route prior to that.
    After that, I failed to complete two other 200k's and that motivated me to get a bike more suitable for the event.

    Stephen H,

    You da Man! You have gone further on your Worksman (40-50 pounds) than most people have done on those bikes that have 25-35 gears and weight 17 pounds.

    Amazing distances, shows what the engine can do instead of the bike.

    I have done a modest 45 during a brewery tour so lots of stops, on a mongoose beast. My felt cruiser regularly does 20 miles on friday nights in the summer.

    I've done 80 miles on my "grocery getter" - a 55 pound Schwinn with balloon tires and folding baskets. Took me all day, though, and my bottom was sore for a few days afterward.

    I have done 30 miles on my Worksman single speed. I plan on getting the 7 speed hub for it. But it is pretty pricey.

    Most for me in one day, 12 miles. Six miles each way from my friend's house to the Red Lobster and back. Not too far but I'm really fat and out of shape!

    Road my Diamond Back Wildwood Classic ($249 at dept store) 31 miles for a Livestrong fundraiser. That was my first real bike ride and I was one of about 3 riders not on road bikes, out of over 1000 bikes. I had never ridden anything like that before. Moved to a road bike (borrowed) after that and 6 months later bought my own road bike.

    Last summer, wife and I, did 78 miles in two days on our Electra Townies, 21D. The first day, we enjoyed the ride so much, that we didn't realize we had gone 20 miles ONE way. Then we realized we had a 20 mile return. The second day we did it again, except 2 miles shorter. Not bad for a couple in their 60's...And ONE of us (that would be me) weighs in at 250lbs.

    I've done 22+ miles on my Rip Curl trying out the full length of our greenway trail and the marked on-road bike routes. Not a bad ride in good weather.

    My usual daily ride is 8-12 miles patrolling the college campus where I work.

    When they were just known as "clunkers" or "just an old bike" my friends and I rode 60 plus miles a day on our Schwinn balloon tired monstrosities and (original) Schwinn Stingray's. Recently, my longest ride on an old Huffy balloon tired "beach cruiser" monstrosity is around 80 miles, maybe 90. Just a short ride of 40 - 45 miles each way.
    One of these days I might take it for a long ride.

    @StephenH wow, awesome. I just met a guy who does long rides like that on his road bike unsupported, I'm wondering if I could do it on my 3G SS cruiser.

    I've done 103 on mine with probably half a dozen in the 75-90 range and countless in the 35-60 range.
    @george25923 I usually average 13-15 depending on terrain and winds with a 44 front and 18 rear. Spins nicely at 17+-ish mph.

    Love riding this bike, we've done almost 8k miles together in the last 3 or so years.
