120 miles in one day. Several multi-day trips of several hundred miles, including one Bike Across Kansas about 25 years ago.

I ran a lot of laps around the track wearing my bike under my gym clothes in high school.

Back in the 70's I used to ride a bike to a job in extreme NW Lawrence while living in extreme SE Lawrence. That's prolly, what, 20 or 25 miles round trip?

One day rides: I've done right at a century (100 miles) twice.

Multi-day: 6 days from St Louis downtown (took Amtrak there, crossed briefly into Illinois) to Lawrence primarily via the Katy Trail.

I'm with ya. I like my bike, but knowing I could be flying by at 65mph on the motorcycle....hard to substitute.

56 miles in under 3 hours. Could have gone 112+ easy.

Here are a local man and woman on a really long bike ride. Pretty cool, no?

I rode from ~2nd & Iowa out about 80% of the way to Lecompton on N 1800 Rd then E 600 Rd. Turned around about 2 miles short of Lecompton. Came out to about 18 miles round trip. I suspect I could go significantly further, but I'm not a fan of riding at night out on roads with no street lighting at night. Nice area to ride during the day for those who haven't.
