Breaking down the numbers:

Ah, numbers. The liberal arts student in me loves this post. For all of you who requested data summing up my bike tour, put your Spock hat on and enjoy. While in no way does a bunch of digits encapsulate the fun, travails, adventure and overall accomplishment of riding across the U.S., it is interesting to see it all laid out.

 

Without further ado, here’s the full route we took and below that is all the data. If you’re not interested, skip the numbers and just look at the pictures.However, I promise there aren’t any graphs or bar charts, so don’t be skerred.
