So apparently I wandered around a bit… as Google estimated the route to be 1,322 miles. Of course, I’ve learned (frequently) that you should really just ignore what Google suggests for route planning on a bicycle.
I have been relaxing today and just resting and putzing on the computer.
I tallied up the mileage for the trip and it looks like it took me just over 1600 miles of pedaling (not including the couple of lifts I got along the way.)
Not once during the entire trip did I wear a bicycle helmet, nor did a crash the bike. That statement was not made for political reasons for or against, just stating that being aware, observant, and performing routine maintenance are key to safety. Accidents still do happen, and they did, but they helmet didn’t work for or against any of the incidents that occurred.
That gives me a 38.27 mile per day average, if I include days off… if exclude days off, I did 44.65 miles per day!
A little under my 60 mile per day desired average, but the days were short and cold. I wasn’t tired on many of the days, there was just no daylight left.
