While route planing, how far (km's) could one go in a day (9am - 6pm)?

I know that it depends on a thousand variables, but a trail like hastings heritage/ two track or some of the trails that were shown here. Lets say that the rider(s) are not aggressive and don't want to break the bike

Just trying to figure out what's realistic.

I would think that an avg speed according to my gps (not riding with deadly) is around 50-60 kph

With Deadly we avg 120

There's no shortage of Teds! And they all seem to be fast and fearless no matter what they ride.

We need a Bill to make this an excellent adventure, sorry couldn't resist adding to the cheese.

Spent the day at the docs and physio trying to figure out why things starting getting worse this week. Along with the bruised ribs it turns out I ripped my pectoral muscle, that weird popping feeling I've had twice this week was the muscle ripping further . Four days of physio a week for the next month and she "believes" I'll be good to go for my intended departure date

As for the question of mileage per day, I don't believe there is a number that could be provided due to variables. The biggest variable is weather, a smooth sailing road one day can turn into a slick and slow one the next. Rider speed and seat time per day is also a big variable. Breakdowns, maintenance, being a tourist, fatigue, etc all come into play. I'd like to be able to be more precise but it's not really possible I don't think.

agreed, here's what a day on my last ride through Labrador looked like in good conditions:
Goose to Lab City

4 times a week for a month

You really did get beat up. Not going to be a fun month.

I have found that no matter how hard I try to go, the average usually ends up around 50 kmh. Ride like a bat outta hell and shit happens, which negates the faster moving average with longer stopped periods to repair the damage. This was my experience on the GDR, TAT and other multi-day DS rides.

I find that a comfortable days distance on gravel is equal to about half of what you would do on paved roads...
The 50-60 km per hour average over a days riding seems to be about right for the Island roads...
