|And this is a cruise across America?|
|it's relative to RAAM||DougSloan|

|RAAM is 300-400 miles per day (and no sleeping, or sleeping a couple of hours in the back of a van along the way). That makes this seem easy, right?
There is a PAC Tour, too, which is around 100-130 per day.

|once you put like that it doesn't sound so bad :-). 12 hours a day is probably about what most people need to do the 185 miles. After all its not a race but a touring ride. I like cycling but for $2500 I would prefer a week or two sight seeing in Europe.|

|Sounds like a good tour for masochists! A bit too ambitious for me; my legs hurt just from thinking about it.|| |
