    i'll bite..

    since most of my riding is city-oriented, i haven't really gone above 10mi in a sitting. a couple of times, i've gone from bushwick to the westside highway up to the GW bridge and back, which is around 16mi one way. but like i said, most of it is city A-to-B riding

    I don't think you're going to get anything far out of the ordinary of 100 miles unless you go to the Rando forum or maybe the Road forum. Randos commonly are 200+ mile rides. I have done 100 miles on my geared bike and 60 miles my fixed gear.

    I usually don't have the time to do more than ~10 miles in a single ride, but I used to do 15-20s for fun and often averaged 50 a day while I was couriering.

    I'd say my longest was about 24 miles. A pretty long ride to south philly and back.

    I've done 100 SS and 60 FG. I'm shooting for a fixed century this year sometime.

    Wish I could bring the TET, too. Not sure if it's worth it to bring two bikes for three months...

    My longest day fixed was from Madison to Milwaukee. It was probably a little short of a century. The drumlin trail is 85 miles, but I ditched it and got on some country roads, then did a lot of biking that night.

    For the Philly folks- Anyone ridden to New York and back?

    My longest ride is 200+ miles on my track bike. I'm thinking of doing the same route this year on my SS 29'er.

    About 45 fixed. I wish I could find some good long routes to do. Would also do longer rides if I had a bike that was set up for comfort lol.

    75 miles fixed, which is also my max entirely. One of these days I'm going to hop on the road bike and see where all this fixed 'training' has taken me.

    92 miles fixed, brakeless and on track drops a while back.
    Could have done more, got dark.

    Anyone is the NY area looking to ride longer routes, hit me up.
    I regularly do (2x/week) Brooklyn to Piermont via 9W. About 65-68 miles round trip. Some gnarly hills too.
    Good stuff.
