Stats and Information

This has been an awesome cycling adventure. I recommend it anyone that likes cycling. I and members of my family have seen so many wonderful places and things. It has been a fantastic physical challenge and I'm happy that I was able to be up to the task. It proves that with dedication, preparation, and effort much is possible. I have always enjoyed efforts that require endurance over strength or speed. And endurance was the key here. However, having fun all along the route (rain or shine) made it truly enjoyable.  My blog reflects all the fun things we did and saw in addition to the miles biked.

Here are the milage by week and totals

This what google maps had predicted.  In addition I have put in a total of 1279 miles of preparation cycling time.  Thus the total is milage for this year to date is 3056 miles.

I have used the endomundo web site to records my miles (with some technical glitches) and here is their stats.

Total workouts: 95
Total duration: 11d:18h:10m
Total distance:   3056 mi
Trips around the world: 0.113
Trips to the Moon: 0.012
Average speed: 10.01 mph
Average pace: 6m:00s/mi
Calories burned: 149,772 kcal (277 burgers)

My personal bests (per endomundo) are:

I meet many amazing touring cyclists.  Standouts includes one that had already cycled across the US from the east coast when I met him and planned to continue to Chile.  There was a group that was cycling for Cancer Research from the East Coast to San Francisco.  They said they had 4000 miles, 2 wheels, 1 goal, the cure for Cancer.  Most of the people I met were young people, but I met a few my age.  One couple was biking from Seattle to San Francisco with full touring gear.  There is a comradery that exists among trekers, which elicits friendly hand waves as we pass and willingness to talk about what they are doing.
