I'd like to see what kindof mileage some of you have recently put on. I guess "long distance" is subjective. My usual route is 16-20 miles (wife and kids only allow a short time for a ride). But I'd say over 30 miles is what I'd consider "long." My two recent long rides this season are:
33 miles, 2300ft gain
60 miles, 4000ft gain
Coming up in a month or two- century with 5000ft gain, and two days of 120 miles, 4000 ft gain per day.
My bike is a Steamroller, set up fixed and ~70-74 GI (depending on the route).
