20 miles a day does sound like alot for someone your age new to cycling . . . but, of course that depends on your level of fitness.

Not at all!

However, you may find that taking a day or two off per week is helpful.

You should look at the 50+ forum here on BikeForums, lots of riders over there do those kinds of distances (and more) on a regular basis.

Also, you can pick up some good training and equipment tips as well.
