Hi - I'm considering planning a charity ride that would cover (say) four days. My current aim is for the route to go from one town to another - e.g. from A to E spending nights at B, C and D returning to A by other means. In trying to make this a challenge, but achievable by the largest number of people, I need to consider the terrain and the daily mileage. So - no "serious" hills - but what is "serious"? The main question of this post is what do people consider a reasonable daily mileage? If heard that around 50 miles is good - possibly starting longer (say 60) with the last day shorter (say 40). With average speeds for fit young people of 15-20mph and the less fit 10-15mph this would seem good. What is a good start time and how many planned stops? Is aiming for 10:00 on the road with a one-hour stop at 12:00 good?
What do you all think?
