@marywilson888,
You ride a bicycle. you don't drive one.

I've ridden one 200 km in a day (~120 miles).

@marywilson888,
Hello Friends,

I used to drive about 90 miles everyday. I lived in Lancaster, Calif, and went to school at UCLA, which was just about 90 miles away. got up early every day to drive to and from school. Only thing I know of that beats that is that when I first moved to Texas, i drover from San Francisco to Amarillo is one shot. 38 hours of driving. Which convinced me that that was something that i should never even think about doing again.

Thanks and Regards,
Umang Kumar

@Umang Kumar,
I doubt that what you've written is true. Had you noticed the fact the discussion was about riding a bicycle?

There's some sort of calculation error. If you pedaled your bike (using your legs only) 90 miles per day both ways, that'd be 180 miles per day. This is highly doubtful that you did this daily. That feat is something you might do ONCE for an endurance event. A 90-mile-bike-ride would take the avg in-shape cyclist about 6 hrs - or if you're an elite conditioned rider it might take 5 hrs. However, to take the same RETURN ride bike on the same day...you'd be extremely sore and exhausted.

Now let's understand this claim: if you had to do this type of bicycle ride daily, then you must be a world-class cyclist. Or is it, perhaps, a case that you're a world-class story-teller?

Then there's your claim about riding a bike from SF, CA to Amarillo TX ...

@Ragman,
Notice his use of the word "drive". And yes,

does seem like a fairly tough bike ride.

@roger,

What adds to the confusion a bit is this person has participated on discussions about bikes, motorcycles as well as cars.
