I have recently installed a cycling computer on both my hedgies wheels. I bought them at Wal-Mart for about $19.00 each

I have learned that my hedgies run between 3 and 3 1/2 hours each night. In this time they cover a distance of 5 - 7 kilometers (sorry, I'm in Canada, but I think that is about 3 - 4 miles). They have an average speed of about 2-3 km an hour. The max speed is unreliable, because when a hedgie changes direction it seems to the cycling computer that they made the wheel go all the way around in a very short time. So it misreads a max speed of 15 - 18 km an hour. I think it is more like 6 km an hour.

Also, I have noticed that if they have an extra long playpen session (more than 1 hour) they spend less time on their wheel.

I found that this post was very helpful when I set mine up:

Good luck! It can be a bit trying setting it up, but I think it is very valuable information :)
