I have pedaled to work everyday since feb15th of this year, last year I had over 3000 miles on the pedals, this year I'm over 2500 so far, and plan to crack 4000 miles for the year. I have a 16- 17 mile round trip, and ride every day, and sometimes on weekends. I'm 5 9" and fluctuate between 230 and 240. When I started cycling I was 299. I'm in a lot better shape, but yeah, I'm a lot "chunkier" thank you'd expect with the amount of miles I do. I plan to keep losing, but don't think you can look at a riders build and determine how far he goes. I've completed centruy rides before, not blazing fast (14.5 average on our last one) but it's still 100 miles under the wheels at the end of the day.
