Wow! I ride 18-20 miles every day but reading this thread has really inspired me! I've got to find a way to carve out more time to ride longer. I also need to figure out longer routes - I like loops and hate backtracking home. Bookmarking this thread so I can come back for motivational purposes, thanks =).

Glad you find inspiration in the thread!

Thanks to all that takes time to share their accomplishments. It inspires and motivates myself as well.

First outing began at 3:25AM. A bit chilly but well worth it to begin under a beautiful moon and rode the 7-speed 35 pound hybrid for a slow and easy 31 miles. Back home to put on padded shorts, cycling shirt, have a quick bite to eat then back out at 7:40AM to meet up with the group at the LBS. This time on my upright bar 29.5 pound touring Paramount for an additional 73 miles. 104 was a good day but not done yet. Had to go food shopping at Walmart and the local fresh vegetable/fruit store so back out on the 7-speed but this time only 5 miles.

Horrible Hundred in Clermont, FL. a week from tomorrow then in another week the Space Coast Half Marathon.

Due to a close friend's bereavement I've not been out for a week so today I had to do an errand for my 92 year old mother-in-law who stays 12 miles away. So today's total was 24 miles. Unfortunately I was behind this numpty who didn't like waiting at red lights

Not too far today, just a 30 minute loop. But I went on all the main feeder roads that were almost left for deserted during the tiny window of no retail business.

I'm new on here and just got my first real road bike. I took it for a short spin last Tues since it was only 40 out. Not sure how accurate my Samsung health app is but almost broke 30mph. I made a few stops taking pictures of my new wheels and some deer playing soccer. I might go on ride today since I know I won't be going tomorrow. Go Buckeyes!

42 miles yesterday, with some good steep hills that I haven't been on in awhile. Funny what a difference two years can make. On this one monster hill that I couldn't even climb when I started back, then after awhile got to where I could climb in the lowest possible gear, I now can climb on the largest chainring in gears that I used to be in while cruising 18-20 mph on flat ground.

Not bad for an old fart.
