While most cycling tours are organized by cyclists and focus on the endurance part, I being less of a cyclist and more a traveler like the ride to be focused on seeing, absorbing, experiencing. So, in my itinerary I have set relatively relaxed targets for every day. So, take you time out of take photographs, eat out, talk to people. I am sure you will be able to get the target location by the end of the day and even if you dont, you always have to option to cover the remainder in the backup vehicle.
You can carry your basic luggage if you want like warm linings, supplements and rain wear, but most of your luggage get carried in the backup vehicle which makes it much easier.
