Question Just in a Day's Ride

Question for all the long haulers out there.

Im planning a 30 day journey, to where, um, around N.America, somewhere. Ive come to discover 30 days is in fact not a lot of time.

I realize over a meaningful length of time continuous riding, the distance rode every day varies, sometimes not at all, and also much of it is very much related to one's constitution to spend endless hours on the saddle. Yet still I have no experience more than a two day trip.

For those who have taken great journeys, over the course of the trip, what do you avg distance wise per day?

Any other tidbits of advice also welcome. Cheers!

You will find that there are days that you can eat up 500 miles or more to get from A to B and there are days you will only go 150 miles enjoy your 30 days.

Distance depends upon where in the country, on what roads you ride and what you want to see.

In the East, lots of small towns and stopping. Out West, wide open spaces and higher posted speeds (85mph) in some parts of TX.

Measure your rides by the amount of time you plan to spend on the saddle.
