Every ride I have ever done in all distances has a mix of TDF wannabes and beach cruisers on a stroll. At 13 mph average you will be way up the halfway point for sure. Just be sure to hit your rest stops and don't get hooked up in riding fast at the start and you will do fine. I would guess sub three hours will be no problem for you.
