Bike Pacing Chart by Common Distances
Below is the cycling pace chart that converts your MPHs into time for various distances from 10 miles to 112 miles (Ironman Distance). For example, if you’re cycling at 20 MPH for a Half Ironman (56 miles), it would take you 2 hours and 48 minutes.
|20K / 12.4 Mi|

Most bikers always have a goal to hit when on the road. An eight-mile distance is an average goal for regular cyclists. So, How Long Does It Take to Bike 8 Miles? If you are a newbie and want to explore the cycling road, it will take you more than 48 minutes to be able to complete the distance. A beginner cyclist will have an average speed of 10-12 mph. A regular biker can finish the distance in 48 minutes or less. The last is some professional bikers only take 2.14 minutes to cover a mile. It will only take them less than 20 minutes to finish an 8-mile ride.
In the cycling speed calculator, the speed in MPH is correct but the value should be X1.609 (instead of ./.) to yield the KPH.
