How many miles per day have you guys ever put on trail riding? We are planning a big trip which may take us about 150 miles and wondering how realistic this is in 5-6 hours?
Difficult to answer without knowing the trail. and impossible considering what could go wrong, Stuck? Breakdown? I've been on trails that take all day to cover 3 miles and I've also been on trails where we averaged 30 miles per hour or more. For the most part trails in the Rockies a person can probably average 5-15 miles per hour. A person could cover anywhere from 25 to 30 up to 75 to 90 miles in a 5 or 6 hour time frame. If you would check your odometer and hour meter you'd probably see that your average distance per hour is around 10 miles per hour + or - a mile or two. For instance my Tcat shows a total of 2610 on the odometer and 247 hours on the hour meter. Total milles divided by total hours will display your average. I average 10.56 miles per hour for all the riding I've done everywhere since I've owned this machine.How many miles per day have you guys ever put on trail riding?

On a Tcat, could cover the 80% in just a little over an hour and a half, and another hour or so for that last 20%. Not including the time to refill the gas tank, lunch and beer stops or if the forest ranger pulls you over and tickets you for exceeding the speed limit on their roads. A Tcat is a gas hog at full throttle and would drink 6.5 gallons in about 50-60 miles.I believe this is 80% rail road bed and the other 20% in the woods in WI. I don't see an issue with getting stuck, and we will have a follower person with truck and trailer for any breakdowns.
