i ride 25-40 per day (the 25 is the normal commute round trip, the rest is for pleasure or for errands) on a fixed gear. the bike's not exactly light and i'm almost always carrying 5-15 pounds of stuff.
i'm pretty ordinary, i guess. sorta fit, but still rather stout (if i didn't drink so much beer, i'd merely be burly). i ride to work, ride home, ride to the grocery store (although I take the SS with the trailer for the big trips), ride to the coffeeshop, the library, the bookstore, the liquor store, the movies, etc. sometimes, we just cruise.
if you're going to ride that much, just make sure the bike's comfy and you've got the gearing selected so that you spin a bit more than you grind and so that you can climb whatever hills you've got to climb.
