    50 miles round trip. I know there is some YouTube vids of some long cross country rides I think it was called the spooky tooth challenge or something like that and I know of another guy I read about that is planning a Alaska to south somewhere can't remember but I think it is to the end of the continent, but in other words made right they will go really far peace out

    About 600 miles for a single trip. About 1100 total so far. I use a subaru/robin EH035 and a custom/weird bike, no kit.

    Re: longest ride u have taken your MB on

    A year or so back we went on a ride with a bunch of mopeds around Orange County. We left from Fountain Valley and cruised around and went down Laguna Canyon to the coast, and then home. I rode my orange Whizzer, my grandson rode his yellow Briggs bike, my friend, Clinton, rode my red and white Briggs bike and my friend, Shaun, rode his Garelli moped I sold him a few months earlier. We traveled up PCH and stopped for a photo moment at Carona Del Mar. Ended up about 60 miles with no problems with any bikes. It was a great day. I've done several 45-60 mile rides in the past on assorted Whizzers and Briggs bikes when there was a Whiz-In every year, which was a swap meet one day and a ride the next. May have a group going on the Long Beach ride coming up on April 3rd at El Dorado Park. We'll start from my neighborhood and putt over to the park and go with the rest of the riders from there.

    When I lived in AZ, I made a 50 mile round trip commute to work. I did it once per week or so.
    My longest in TX has been my 18 mile round trip commute to the bus parknride.

    Eight miles. It would have been 16 if I wouldn't have had to pedal back.

    My clutch cable broke and it had only been pulled about ten times. Since then I've been afraid to get more than ten miles away from home....and that's if I have a cell phone with me.

    Triple A. I have a tourer built and had hopes of doing some long distance touring but I just don't think these happy time China girls are reliable enough. I have an Aosom trailer that I can carry a spare engine kit in but I need to figure out a way to pull a four drawer tool chest behind it. That's the only way I'd get more than ten miles away from home.

    I do a 10km round trip to work, daily.

    I recently went for a new personal record with max trip (once), 40km round trip.
    Mostly on city bike paths in Canberra. All good, I always do a pre-check before any long ride. no problems....so far
