Depending upon your route, that will be > 100 miles/day with no rest days.

When I was in my 20s (i.e., in good shape and at my prime), I was able to sustain about 75 miles per day, and had rest days. Some days were considerably shorter, and if I went much above 75 miles one day, I paid for it the next day.

Lots of info on routes, etc here: https://www.adventurecycling.org/rou...route-network/

I asked the same question about headwinds, and the short of it is if you ride early in the day you probably won't have a huge problem, especially earlier in the year. Keep in mind a lot of mountain passes are still snowed in.

I would use those fork bosses. I am seriously considering buying a $550 fork just to have those.
