450 miles, with 125 of that dirt ? I wouldn't do that, especially if in a group ride. I'm planning my annual summer trip, usually about a week,and 3,000 miles or so. I try to map my days between 325 and 400 miles, lot's of stops for photo ops, water breaks, 10 minute stretch, etc. Still gets me to a motel by 6 or 7 pm or so for dinner. I travel alone, so I ride my own pace, stop as often or seldom as I like. I did a trip 4 years ago with three other riders, never again. It was like herding cats.
