double century ride times

I am interested to know of some average times for someone who average cyclist, not a pro like Lance Armstrong to do a double century ride
that is 200 miles.

Based on an assumption course has some climbs etc.

A round about figure is best. thanks

Depends on the route, I've done them in the 10hr range for a double with 6000ft of climbing to the 16hr range for a double with 20,000ft of climbing.

195 miles, 17100 feet of climbing in 18:30 including stops (two sitdown meals).

I am no Lance and I (gasp) ride a recumbent.

Take out the excessive climbing and the two, hour-long meals and we coulda done it a lot faster. But why? We do these things for the experience. Nobody hands us a check at the end for being so darned awesome. In many (most?) ultracycling efforts, you have only yourself to satisfy.

It's a trick question. The average cyclist doesn't do double centuries.

You can find results there for a lot of different doubles, some without much climbing and some with a lot of climbing.
