Trans Europe Bicycle Tour By The Numbers 1


As I did after my Pacific Coast tour, here is the European version of the trip by numbers. Lots of interesting facts coming out of this one. The mileage was way lower than I expected. It must be the number of times we took the train and we ended our trip in Orsova. Another thing to note is that the riding statistics are between the dates April 8th and June 15th. I didn’t count anything outside of that, such as our road trip around Spain in these numbers.
