In 1 hour i could run about 8 miles, an hours cycling at same effort would probably see me do about 20 miles.

the answers all just prove cougie's first statement that you shouldn't try to compare. everybody is different.

eg punchy says a 100 mile ride in 5 hours is the same as a 4 hour marathon. personally i would have trouble running a marathon that slowly (except in an ironman, of course!!) but i'd have to push moderately to maintain 20mph on the bike for 5 hours. So for me, I guess that a 100 mile ride in 5 hours would be the same as a 3:20 marathon.

it depends which you are better at. no point trying to compare.

My top speed at IMCH (an excellent race) was 59mph
