    I did 135 miles in a day. It was a fall season ride and we ended all getting home after dark. Long day but memorable. Could have done more except for the darkness and my neck ached. Rear and legs were OK. That was a few years ago. Don't know if I could do that now.

    I have a friend that has done 24 hour challenge rides and done close to 300 miles in the allotted time. They do the night time part on a closed loop road for safety. He also is a major mileage junkie. Had 14,000 miles two years in a row. Yikes! That sounds like too much of a job.

    The longest day I've ever ridden was 203 km / 126 miles.

    The longest trip I've ever done was 4500 km / 2800 miles from Perth to Canberra over five weeks.

    Media,
    Nice signature! Scared me a bit, "how did my name get on there?"

    Ha ha ha.
    Oh the longest I've ridden in a day....don't actually know but probably not very far, yet!

    I think my longest one day ride was 112 miles.

    My longest week-long ride was something greater than 500 miles.

    My highest yearly total was over 6000, I haven't really kept great records.

    My lifetime best...well, I'm still working on that one.

    one day longest ride was the Sacrborough to Niagara which is 200 k using all the side routes and the Scarborough to Port Hope which is another 200 k, but I did the Montreal to Scarborough its about a 1,000 k I did it is 7 days
    On a clear beautiful summer I will hate it, if I will not be able to log at least 150k on my day ride, and if not I will be grumpy old man

    106 miles for me. I met up with a guy training for the iron man triathlon. We went out of town so far that I had no choice but to do a century just to get back home! my longest ride previous to that was only 65 miles.

    My roommates were about to come looking for me when i pulled in the driveway. Well...at least I know they cared.

    That's just twisted.

    Yea it was. He had "man" problems for several months afterwards. Please dont try this at home. He also did a 24 ride on a track bike in a velodrome with about the same results.

    My biggest day was 130km. It was on the Traditional Australia Day ride up to mount Glorious Village. I was planning on catching the train to the city, but I realised as I was sitting at the station that they were on a sunday schedule for the public holiday, so I hopped on the bike and sprinted the 25km or so to the meeting point. I got there with seconds to spare fortunately. After that it was pretty much all up hill to Mt. Glorious for a nice long rest at the cafe, and then rode all the way home. My legs felt fine but my left shoulder (the one I usually crash on) was aching really badly for the last 10km.

    I also once rode from London to Pisa, via Amsterdam (trained it between Mainz and Munich) for a total of just over 2000km, but that took more than a day.
    If we learn from our mistakes, I must be a goddamn genius.

    Montreal to Scarborough its about a 1,000 k
    Hate to bust your bubble, but, unless you went via Timmins and Moose Factory, Montreal to greater Toronto is less than 600km, closer to 500km, actually. I know, I used to drive that route regularily, often on dily round trips. 1000km is more like Toronto to Chicago.
