Just curious, what is the most miles that you have ridden in a single tour? This is excluding stopping somewhere for more than two weeks........

My longest was a modest 4244 mile tour.  That was a slightly modified TransAmerica.  It was about as long as I care to go, but I know folks who do much longer tours.

By about that time I am definitely ready to go home for a while.  I don't care for really short tours though.  So my preferred range of tour lengths is something like 9 days to 10 weeks give or take a little.

Somewhere between 4 to 4.5 thousand miles, give or take a mile or two.  Rode around Europe for the summer.  Middle of May to end of August.  Made several 2-3-4 day stops and one 1 week long stop.  I'd say 1 to 2 week long tours are preferred by me.  One week and I am into it, still excited.  Two weeks and I am ready to do something else and sit on the couch and vegetate.  Mileage, distance covered is completely irrelevant.  My fondest memories of tours are about the sites I saw and people I met and experiences I had.  Not how many miles I rode each day.

About 3,600 miles/5,800 kilometers down the Atlantic coast from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Key West, Florida in the fall of 2016.

Don't know and don't care.
