Well, since joining this forum and really getting serious about riding, I've gone 100 miles. I feel awesome right about now. It only took nine days too. A short nine days ago, a five mile ride was my absolute max. Of course, I would go out 2-3 times a day and do 4-5 miles. Just now I got back from a 10 mile ride and I was actually upset that I didn't take the "long" route I had initially planned because I still had plenty of energy when I got back. It won't be long at all before I'm holding up my 1000 mile sign like some of you other guys.
