I venture off on my own to do the Cannonball 250 ride. The Cannonball series of rides is a distance/time-based series spanning from 250 (miles) all the way to the Cannonball 5000 (miles). The range from day rides, to multi-day rides.
Why not do a nice day ride which has a time that you need to beat. I’m up for it, so I decided to tackle the 250. The 250 is 250 miles in 6.5 hours. Seems easy, but it also includes 4 checkpoints (stops) and you don’t take any major highways. The actual estimated time for this ride was approximately 7 hours if you abided by all speed limits, caught all the green lights, and no traffic.
I ended up doing the ride in 5.5 hours. Not too bad. Of course there’s a video.
Have a watch.
