We all ride various distances, but was wondering what is the longest ride you've done in a single go? No multi-day adventures count.
 
Mine is 161.78 km (on Strava here). When I got back into cycling in summer 2017 after a veeeeery long hiatus, riding 20 km in one go seemed liked a big deal, so riding 100 miles that day was extremely satisfying. Next goal, 200 km or more in a single day!
Good luck with that! Got mine done with some serious elevation - was fun but think I could have gone further for longer if the surface had been flatter.
 
160ish km, I think, with about 3,200 or 3,300 m of climbing. These days time is the limiting factor. I think I'll spend a long day in the saddle when my mom passes, though.
 
Around 165km in a single go, selected for this vote. 1000-1500m of climbing. In Chiba where we do not have any challenging mountain.
I did actually complete just over 200km in a day on a flat circuit, but that was for an enduro, broken in three parts.A 15km warming up then a 2h+3h enduro for 190km.
The early night in Japan (tend to wake up late and start late) is a constraint
 
this was an event that started at midnight and finished some 18-20 hrs later. The later to turn pro Tim Vincent did it in under 13 hrs, solo, paced by a tanden team that would change out riders 426kms 4000meters


just finishing was hard enough.
 
I did a solo 205km ride with 1200m elevation around the beginning of april this year. It was a fun ride but afterwards i decided it was probably a good idea to let myself recover not to do another 200km+ ride for a while. 1 week later I ended up doing 202km with 2300m elevation on a greenline loop organized by @joewein. Absolutley killer
 
220km, Out and back from Kawasaki to Okutama.
The Tamagawa path hurts so much, 100% wouldnt do it again.
 
304 km - quite unplanned. Finished a Golden Week group ride (day 3 = 125 km) in Utsunomiya with my friends in the late afternoon, after passing through snow up in the mountains. I'd lost my rinkō bag earlier in the trip. It seemed like a nice evening with a full moon. I had a good light. I decided to ride home along the rivers. Got home around 3 a.m. It was wonderful.

 
228km.
actually last weekend.. covered three prefecture s to boot…was an interesting ride with 3hrs of work squished in the morning. Woke up at 5:30am rode to work. 8am-noon work.. then did the rest of the ride 180km after that (including a 20min nap along Arakawa. lol).I thought I'd be much more tired than that, but wasn't too horrible. If anything, my left foot hurt from the lack of arch support. Got home at 10:30pm.
Did another 50km to recover a bit two days later with @jonmanjiro (he went around Miura that day, I met him for some Amazake!)
 
Quite recently (7 June): Home (near Marukobashi) to Takao, then


then back home.

My Cat-Eye added that up to 241 km. And according to RwGPS, it had over 3800 metres of climbing (even after "elevation flattening" here and there) -- but I don't believe it.

I arrived home in good nick; and I even did pretty well, I think, teaching a class from 08:50 the morning after.
 
In Chiba where we do not have any challenging mountain.
Bōsō has a lot of up-down up-down up-down, and the last of these can be pretty challenging for my feeble old self, when my chums (who are invariably stronger than me) are in a bit of a hurry to arrive at Kanaya in time for a ferry.

220km, Out and back from Kawasaki to Okutama.
The Tamagawa path hurts so much, 100% wouldnt do it again.
Suggestion: Tamagawa, Akigawa, Itsukaichi, Hinohara, turn right at Tachibana bridge, Hinohara mushroom centre, Kazahari, Okutama-ko, Okutama mukashi-michi, cross to the right bank at the Kori 7-11, cross back at Hamura, downstream. More hurt, less boredom.

Did that a few weeks back myself - my longest ride of about 195km. The Tamagawa is nice on the way there, but it's the switchbacks that got me in the end.
