Philip,

I don't know the exact route that was chosen, but Google Maps shows the trip as 2,777 miles / 4,469 km.

Using those mileage figures over the time posted (37:07), it would equate to an average of 74.85 mph / 120.46 kph average speed, meaning actually moving speed would have been faster accounting for fuel/rest stops.

It takes a heck of a team to get it done.

Re: New Cannonball Record

Sweep riders need to ride ahead each 50 miles or so and pick up the LEO. Take one for the team.
