Thread: 100 Hours Coast to Coast to Coast

    100 Hours Coast to Coast to Coast

    It's been a needle in my mind for a couple of decades.

    Riding from coast to coast and back again in 100 hours or less.

    If you know anyone who has done such a ride, or anybody that has done coast to coast in <50 hours, please share their information. I want to start planning this thing for real.

    Thank You.

    Ya gotta average 59.6mph to do it [ LA to Boston is just shy of 3K miles ]. Unlikely at best.

    There are a number of trip reports on the 50cc and you can probably find the same for the 50cc X 2.

    Good luck!

    Pretty well planned out (down to the gas station and best times) on the IBA forum

    https://forum.ironbutt.org/index.php...n-iba-50cc.92/

    I'm assuming this won't be your first IBA run?? What are you going to be riding?

    It's also on my bucket list...

    The most used route is San Diego to Jacksonville or vice versa. That is about 2350 miles. Literally dozens have done the 50cc, and several the 100 ccc.

    That's averaging 47mph for 100 hours which is very doable.
