If he cycles for 8 hours he covers 8×15.12=120.96 miles in the day.

So it will take 369.25/120.96=3.05 days approximately.

If he increases his speed to 16.27 he covers 8×16.27=130.16 miles in the day.

It will take him 369.25/130.16=2.84 days approximately, so he reduces his time by about 0.21 day (about 5 hours).
