This is often done.  I've seen finish lines as far as two miles away
from the "end of the trail" when the ride camp was in a congested
area.  For example, the last day of the Shore to Shore ride where you
actually ride through town on paved streets to the beach.  Ride time
is taken as the time you cross the finish line, even though you are
required to ride on the last two miles.
