Being an old guy like most of this list, I'm not terribly fast.  I have
a Surly touring bike I like to load up with camping gear and do maybe
70-80 mile days, or 30-50 mile afternoon/lunch/brewery rides.

I've got a folding Montague that goes in the back of my old Cessna 170
plane, too, that does quite well on trails like the Great Allegheny
Passage or the C&O Canal towpath.  That has been serving well as my
take-it-around bike.
