I put about 10-miles on a day, although the weekends see about 50-miles. I've used my baby as a daily-driver for well over a year now (even in snow and rain), and she's held up excellently; this was only after the many heartaches of newbieizm: I've found that our builds evolve around our needs, and you'll go through a lot of heck and broken rings before you figure each other out. My longest trip was about 90-miles (over 5-hours) from central Long Island to Bridgeport Connecticut (via Queens and the Bronx) when I missed a ferry. I am happy to have that little journey under my belt, but wouldn't want to do it again! A leisurely 20-mile round-trip suits me just fine: I'm the limiting factor, not my China Girl.
