Notes:

Total Miles and Total Time equals door to door distance and all-in time.  Clock Miles excludes playing in city traffic at start and finish of stage.  Clock Time excludes rest stops, lunch breaks, and anything else when bike is motionless.

Observations:

1. CB website estimate for Singburi was an imaginary number.  All others for first half of ride basically OK, given that navigation errors accounted for discrepancies for Thoen, Phichit, and Nakhon Sawan.  Estimates for Rachatburi to Ban Ta Khum need reworking to match actual route.

2. My average speed was 15.6 mph for 86.7 hours.  An average of 15 mph = 90 hours; an average of 16 mph = 84.4 hours.  Conclusion: given relatively tight grouping of riders, particularly in second half of ride, everyone probably averaged between 15.0 – 16.0 mph for whole trip.

3. The higher average speeds for most second half stages were owed mostly to days and days of glorious tail winds.  Sorry about that, early leavers!
