Cycling USA&Canada 2015

 
From July 2 to October 14, 2015 I cycled from Vancouver, Canada to Williamsburg, VA,USA. Go to the first blog entry on that epic tour of almost four months....

Statistics? Here we go:

In 98 days of my whole trip I was in the saddle for 90 days, total distance was 7337 kms, av. distance per day was 73.75 kms, average speed in movement was 17.4 km/h, max. speed was 77 km/h, Highest Point in the Rockies in Canada was 2389 m, elevation: 45661 m, descent: 45657 m - which tells me that my finishing point on James River must lie a little higher than my starting point in Vancouver. 🙂

The interactive map gives different figures which is due to trackpoint reduction (otherwise the file would have been much too big ... 🙂 )

Two  maps which only seem to be identical:  The first one is the fully interactive map in the google plugin and the second one is a screenshot for the benefit of readers with little bandwidth ...
