Entirely pointless question as there aren't any steps in bike riding, and a stationary bike doesn't go anywhere. But making some rough comparisons to real life riding a 20 mile ride under average conditions can be anywhere between 45 minutes and one hour 20 minutes, depending on the rider, bike and course. A well accepted recommendation states that the cranks should turn at a rate of 80-100 turns/minute, which gives you around 6000 turns for the ride.
