Welcome to the team, sounds like you have a really good time when you ride. DH got me started 3 years ago and we usually ride a tandem (road and mountain). I now have a single road and mountain bike and must admit I prefer the mountain single. I get nervous on the road, especially in traffic. The critters in the woods don't try to run me off the trail.
We have a short route (27 miles, 2 good hills) we ride just about every morning. On DH's week off we try to get 40 miles in on several days. While I do love to ride, after about 60 miles it stops being much fun for me. My longest ride so far is 82, and I was exhausted when it was over.
I look forward to hearing about some of your rides.
