I cycle at such a sedate pace that cycling IS a rest day. three rest days over 33 days 2,000 miles TX to NY, only really needed the first one on day five after I had put in ~300 miles in four days. Set a more relaxed pace after that.Typically I start in late morning after lingering over breakfast and then ride until nearly full dark, cold camp near the roadway. Average pace of actual riding: about 8mph.
