Distance for base Turbo in full turbo mode

So my wife and I are going to take a 25 mile ride this weekend and I am wondering in her base Turbo if the battery will last on turbo mode the whole way. It's going to be a pretty flat ride so she can probably bump it down into eco mode for a bit but just wondering if the battery will last 25 miles in full turbo mode.
Anyone push theirs to the limit yet?

I have. I can definitively say that she "should" be able to ride 25 miles in full TURBO mode if she also contribute lots of leg power, but setting the bike so that it uses ECO70 when dropped down and trying to conserve just a bit would not be a bad idea. I weigh 240 lbs and am 64 yrs old, so when I ride in full Turbo mode I get about 2.5 mil;es per 10% of battery. I assume she is lighter and would hope your ride is flatter. If so, the 25 miles is right on the edge.

For me, I would probably plan a 22 mile ride at full TURBO to leave a reserve. Or conversely try to make sure I did 5-10 miles at ECO70.

Thanks Doug that will work out perfect then. For the most part it is pretty flat where she can bump it down to ECO70 for a while. Or I might just do it ahead of time and she probably wouldn't even notice..... :)
