100 miles all at once is tough. If there is no stopping or breaks for resting it is even harder. Most could do a 100 in a day if there is no climbing and lots of restaurants around to stop and rest in, but if you are at pace, not stopping or having to climb alot it is a very different animal.:D:p Mark (T-3) can pull it off because he rides a lot, has the time, gets up early, has the motivation, stops to rest if need be and is not at pace, but even this is not easy here. If planned well, many good riders can do it, especially in the flats and even on a heavy bike with not much climbing...skpc

Finally riding a big boys bike
you guys that say you have ridden 100 miles on a single speed, 40-50 pound coaster braked bike with caged ball bearings and 40 PSI tires should all be in the Olympics

Agreed.Tour de France competitiors in the early 1900s rode steel frames with a fixed, flip flop hub on the rear wheel. That was all the gearing they had at the time.
-You installed the wheel with the little cog on the chain side for sprints and downhills.
-When it was time to climb, the rider removed the rear wheel and reinstalled it with the big cog on on the chain side. The so-called "good ole days".

Indeed. I'm a lil' slow compared to other bikes/riders.
I'm still sorta' new at this.
I did 100 miles last thursday, rode Fri., Sat., and Sun. then 102 Mon. 112 Tues. and 72 today by noon.:p
This is still, really "Not much", compared to other bikes/riders; guys I meet.:eek:
I wanted to get 3 consecutive centuries, but had "Stuff to do" so I went home.
Something connects when I'm out riding the beach, All Day Long.;)

He replied that the question was wrong; I shouldn't be thinking of how many miles he had ridden in a day, but how many days he had ridden in one go
I can guarantee you did not do a century in the same Bay Area Hills that I used to ride. I never did one in less than 7 hours nor more than 8.
Record week for me with 400 miles in 5 days. 102, 112, 72, 72, and 42 miles, almost all of it along the beach; 5 different bikes.:)
Flat with cool breezes, perfect temp. and lovely scenery.
I choose to do it because I love it so much.
The pics are barely even close to how good it is!
Who wouldn't want to go every DAY!?
Who has the time....?:eek:
I put off maintenance and repairs, because i wanna ride.:p
Yes, it takes me all day; there's nothing else i'd rather do.:cool:

Look Ma, No Hands!
About twenty years ago, in my mid-40's, was riding quite a bit on my 1969 college bike, a ten speed C.itoh. I'd taken it to the local bike shop for some spoke work, they laughed when they saw it, weighed it and it was about 30 pounds, a real clunker next to their new carbon fiber light weight bikes.
So, there was a Century being run, and I and a friend decided to try it. We had our old clunky bikes, shirts and blue jeans. I won't say that the bike group, decked out in skin tight clothes and all the fancy gee gaws, laughed at us, but I do think I heard a few snickers. We took off, and we kept up with everyone really well, much to their surprise.
I made 60 miles, and had to give it up, as the next leg was very hilly. My buddy made the 100 miles, though he said it wore him out.
I'm glad I did it, couldn't do it now.
Still have the C.itoh, still has a Baton Rouge bike license on it, hard to think that bike is over 50 years old....it's served me well, though I read some disparaging remarks about the brand when they're discussed....

Need to put an old-bikes, pre-1950-only 100 or 50 miler organized ride on.
Anyone, anywhere, but all on the same day.
Would be fun to do this.
"50 pre 50" has a certain ring to it, who needs 'Eroica', who needs gears!
Still would like to try the century.
I may aim to do this on, or around, my birthday in June.

I love double meanings, with our day; Social Distance Ride.:p
It took me a while of pushing myself, chasing @Hippie Mike for a few years, riding to @cyclonecoaster.com group rides in Long Beach, every month for a few years now; but anyone could do it; it's a Blast!
Come on out, let's ride!
