    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.
