Statistics – km, duration, speed…

I like to keep statistics: kilometers per day, time we pedal, average speed, money spent (divided into travel, eat, sleep and other categories).

So far, with the kilometer four thousand almost arriving and 55 days of cycling, these are the numbers:

  • Each journey averages on 64 km (maximum 97 km, minimum 28 km)
  • We cycle between 2h and 6h40 per day, not counting the stops (avg: 4h 40m)
  • The global average speed is 14km/h, the fastest day we pace at 17.8km/h and the slowest to climb Serra da Estrela was 8.2km/h.

Travel part III – South Portugal

Portugal-part-3The next part of our trip is now planned and started today (we had to wait for the temperature to decrease from the max 38º C and min 25º C of the last few days). So far we did the following:

  • Part I – Geneva – Santiago de Compostela – Apúlia – 6 weeks
  • Part II – Apúlia – Serra da Estrela – Lisboa – 3 weeks

The next 3 weeks will most likely be:

  • Part III – Alentejo (coast) – Algarve – Baixo Alentejo – Lisboa

If you have tips, places to stay and so on, don’t hesitate to let us know.

Après la montée des derniers jours, nous nous attendons à une journée de descente – comment cela pourrait-il être autrement ? Continue reading “De la chaleur, de l’eau et la belle vie”
