17,000 furlongs per fortnight is about two times as fast as Walking Pedestrians (in Manhattan)
In other words, it's 2.20 times the speed of Walking Pedestrians (in Manhattan), and the speed of Walking Pedestrians (in Manhattan) is 0.450 times that amount.
(Manhattan; average speed; 8,978 person-sample)
