The speed of each stage of the ride will depend on the terrain and the context. We would expect to cycle at an average speed, while moving, of 10 miles per hour. That converts to an average of 7 mph when short stops are included. So this is not a slow ride but neither is it fast! The focus will be on enjoying the ride while covering the distance that day. Some of the stages are long (50+ miles) and so there will be limited time for ‘hanging around’.
