A few weeks ago I road my '72 Raleigh on the SRT out and back for a 128mi trip that lasted 9hrs including snack breaks. My longest ride on any bike so far.

I've ridden Imperial centuries on the '74 Italvega, the '72 Frejus, the '83 Trek, a c.'80 Ranson and an '85 Trek that I no longer own, and also on some other mid-late 80's steel equipped with clicky bits.
No pictures of me suffering, though.

My longest one-day ride is 149mi, but modern. I have done a steel 100mi fixed. Cured me of that.

Frek (a modified '82 Trek 614) has taken me on many 200k, 300k, 400k and 600k brevets. Between brevets and countless other "just for fun" rides, I can't even guess how many times we've gone over 100 miles together in a day. Quite a few.



The farthest I've ever ridden in a single day (i.e. 24 hours) was on my '85 Trek 760 that I foolishly sold a couple years back. Together we finished a 600k brevet in just under 24 hours. That was a hard but very fun ride! My friend, Jan wrote a blog post about the ride here. And here's the bike that made it possible (picture is from a different ride closer to home):

I remember him a lot shorter, standing with an Ironman.
He had a look of utter "I got this" on his face.
Seems like he's turning out like the mold intended. Kudo's to you and him.

If you discount my 1980 back-to-school, planned-only-the-night-before 200 mile (13 hour) escapade on my 1978 Raleigh Super Course, it has to be the three Seagull Centuries on the trusty, 1972 Fuji Finest. Apparently, I never moved the photos I took of it at the turn-around at Assateague from the defunct Photobucket account, but here's a photo of it lacking only the bags it carried - though not on the day-of.




The bicycle has the distinction of simultaneously being one that I could consider parting with, and also being what I think I would keep if I could only have one bicycle.

My Centurion Pro Tour trying to vintagify the 2022 Canada Day Populaire last Friday. You can tell it's different from all the other bikes because it's facing the right way. We did 40kms to the start and 108 around the route plus another 2 to the bus loop, so 150km. I would have done another 10 to make it 160 but I had to get home to do some things. Also rode this bike at this year's earlier Pacific Populare in April, also for 100km. Based on my finish times (dead last), I concluded I won't be able to finish any 200km brevets under the time limit, so I'll have to lighten the engine and put in more hours before I try it. Maybe in September. I really don't want to go another year without doing my first 200km.

I'm really enjoying this thread, it's great seeing y'all out in the wild with the great (some quite familiar) bikes. I especially liked seeing bwilli88's pictures from Cambodia for a striking change of scenery.

I'm not one to ride more than a modest 100 miles, preferring shorter, more-spirited riding, but here I am riding up the west side of Lake Tahoe, on a 100-mile journey around the lake including a side-trip up to Truckee (I would repeat the effort many times during the early 2000's).

That is the most C&V of the thread. Wood rims? Mighty impressed.
I usually do not quote when many pics are involved but those are deserving of an encore.
