Those are obviously not records but just things that people posted. Our group of three did Lake
Michigan in a week in 1986, which is barely over 130 miles per day - a nice pace but hardly "record"
material. Riding alone last summer, I did Lake Huron in under 6 days, averaging 170 miles per day,
again a nice pace but only about half the pace the RAAM riders do across the whole US. I'd estimate
they could do Lake Michigan in 3 days and require that much only because of delays getting through
the urbanized area from Gary to Milwaukee and across the Mackinac Bridge.
