For a 200k, start around dawn, take 10 or 12 hours, get finished before dark.
For a 300k, start around dawn, take 15-18 hours, finish at night.
For a 400k, start around dawn, take 19-22 hours, finish early the next morning.
For a 600k, start around dawn, finish the first day at 2:00 in the morning, start the 2nd day at dawn, finish around 5:00 or 6:00.
Stop at controls every 30 miles or so, buy food and water there.
Control times range from maybe 5 minutes if riding solo to an hour if it's really hot or other problems are coming up.
That's typical randonneuring practice, based on my experience.
Obviously, if you can ride a 200k in 7 hours or a 600k in 24 hours, you can adjust scheduling accordingly. But that's not me.
