Thirty-five miles a day is what I generally average on a loaded bike. Did more when I was in my 50s. And I always try to leave enough in case I get lost, can't find accommodation, or miscalculate my distances.
Good going yiannis. You're probably already planning your next trip.:thumb:

I've done a couple of easy going 30-35 mile a day, 4-5 day rides. I really love that pace. Although my rides were on bike paths, not roads.

Click on "Go Advanced" below the message window. The new message window has a paperclip icon for attachments. Click on it, then click in the box "upload file from your computer" and browse to find your photos, one at a time. You need to know what your photos are called and where they are stored on your computer. There are other ways to do it if you have your photos on a site such as Photobucket.
