Default Seat / Saddle / Endurance

On flat terrain, I can sit on my saddle in one position for hours at a time
(moving my hands around, but not my rear end).

In the hills, I put more pressure on my butt at times, but I also move around
a lot more to even it out.

Depends on what you mean, but very long, ideally, I guess.
Yesterday I did about 40 km (two hours) without breaks, but the
rest of the ride I had some problems in the rear end... Then again
I put 40% more kilos over my previous personal record.

: Is it 15 minutes or an hour or what? The only thing that keeps me from
: extended bike riding is very short seating endurance.

You can get a recumbent if you want to do very long rides.
