If going from Montreal, leaving at noon and making it to Nelson BC 5 days later at noon, way south of Chicago....no slab and plenty of curves....1/2 day lost for a new front tire.....5,500 Kms puts me up there, I'll play for 5 minutes. I have a few 1,000 miles days under my ass in the last 35-40 years, I don't keep track.

I was ready for more, too bad had to go earn a living.

But can I also lie about recently, I must have slowed down overall average speed was 134 Mph......GPS sure is lying. Happened when I crossed the border....I think it got zapped by the electronic surveillance equipments.

RAAM (Race Across America) Ride Records

Homey - is this like Paul Ryan's sub 3 hour marathon?
http://news.runnersworld.com/2012/08...-300-marathon/

Your post makes it sound like you rode 3052 miles in 5d 19hrs (avg speed ~ 22mph) obviously that isn't possible.

An eight man relay team can make that kind of time.

Is that what you did? It is still quite an accomplishment!

How many miles did you ride? What was your longest day on the bicycle? Any pics or links?

From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_Across_America)

"The fastest men's speed was by Pete Penseyres in 1986, when he rode 3107 miles (5000 km) at 15.40 mph (24.8 km/h) in 8 days, 9 hours, and 47 minutes.[8]"... " The fastest eight-person team was established by Team Type 1 in 2009. The squad of riders who all have type 1 diabetes completed 3,021 miles in 5 days, 9 hours and 5 minutes."

It is possible, we did. No, I didn't ride it solo. We were on a 8 tandem team. I also did it on a four tandem team in 6 days 9hrs. Our team has a couple RAAM records. The most I've ridden solo in 24hrs on the bicycle was 412 miles. Below are a couple of our web sites. There are pictures and some videos on there as well.

My wife and I rode (on seperate bikes) from San Diego, Ca to Vancouver Wa., 1100 miles, in one day. Me on my GSXR 750 and her on her JF600. I don't remember how many hours/minutes it was but it was less than a day.

I probably have the record for the lowest figure, but I once had the misfortune of riding 315 miles of twisty back roads (slow curves, a lot like the Dragon) with my then-regular group (grey-haired Harley riders). For comparison, we were sore enough after 200 miles that everyone was standing up and bending alternating legs for as long as possible at every stop sign. The road captain was firmly against riding on the highway, believing it was unsafe, and planned out the route in his car, but when he went over schedule (his wife demanded him home at a precise time), he refused to take a break.

If you've experienced a group of old tourers being grouchy when they're in good shape, you have an idea of what this became. I was even riding my '79 GL1000, stock save for a king/queen seat. By the next day, of course, I was proud of my accomplishment, and we all rode together again, though we were vocal that we not repeat that particular level of endurance.

As far as highway mile records, I haven't really done any uninterrupted stint worth mention, but I'm confident I can complete 4-500 on almost any bike without discomfort, given an interstate route plan. I know that plenty of people do at least twice that, otherwise the IBA would be a considerably smaller club, but I'm content to be a chicken and set my limit without wearing a new hole in my ass or strongly regretting the last leg.

That's all I got.

Damn. I think I know that route. Impressive.
