Lake Michigan Bike Tour: By The Numbers

I found this on my computer the other day and thought I would share it from our Lake Michigan Bike Tour last summer. It's our second bike tour and we are currently preparing for our third and longest one this coming summer for our honeymoon, Seattle to San Diego (approximately 1,900 miles.)

1 engagement 
2 crazy kids on their bikes
3 awesome roofs that we slept under (thanks Andrew, Monica, Scott, Kolt, and Stevie)
4 different states visited
5 days over 75 miles
6 firework shows on the 4th of July (all viewed from Escanaba over the lake)
8 other bike tourists that we talked to
9 campgrounds paid for
10 campgrounds camped in
15 days of biking
16 total days
47 miles in a day (our shortest) (x2)
65 miles per day (not including our day off in Chicago)
88 miles in a day (our longest)
971 miles tracked by my cyclometer
1,000,000 road cacti (aka porcupine road kill)
