    194 miles (312km) with 16,568 feet (5,020 meters) of climbing. Just under 12 hours total time, including stops.

    Chipper, at that point why not ride the extra 6 miles to get a double?

    I'm new to this whole road thing, mainly I ride MTB but I got a road bike in early July. I did 66 solo miles yesterday. About mile 50 I was convinced that I need a new saddle.
    I have a century at the end of September that I'm determined to finish

    Hahaha... oh, you were serious. Two reasons really, the finish line was at 194 miles (it was an organized event) and... 194 miles!

    Saddle makes all the difference for a reduced pain Century ride. Just went through the process of demoing a few saddles on fairly long rides in the 60 mile range. Get those sit bones measured so you can find the right saddle width.
    At my age, it's all uphill!!!

    I picked up a Romin Evo comp on Monday, only a 30 mile ride so far but much less pressure on my "area" and no numbness..

    Hope to get a longer ride in soon for a better test but so far I'm happy

    126 miles. Wasn't a sun up to sun down kind of deal, but longest single day ride. It was supposed to just be the century route of the DC Tour de Cure, but I missed a turn and it took me a while to realize it, turn around, and backtrack.

    540 km in 15 h 4 m. The StyrkeprÝven Trondheim-Oslo, in 1999. Party!
    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    Live in the South Jersey suburbs of Philadelphia.
    Did a solo "out-and-back" to the south end of Ocean City, NJ. 135 miles.
    If I ever do that again, I think I'd like company...

    Yeah, my previous longest ride was an analogous experience. 122 miles. Three more miles would've made a Double-Metric. But we don't pad. Only hacks pad.

    My best was 201 km in 10 hrs on a 35 lb, full suspension mountain bike with a chunk of headwind. I have plans for a double Century once I am of a less round shape.
