Day 160: Bar Harbor Campground

So having left San Diego, California, on the 24th March 2015, my most westerly point, I arrived in Bar Harbor, Maine, my most easterly point, some 154 days later on the 24th August 2015. The vital statistics are:
9,400 miles ridden
67.6 miles per riding day (average)
105,000 metres of ascent
9 punctures repaired
1 new front tyre
3 new rear tyres
2 oil changes
2 chains
1 new set of brake pads
17 rainy days
15 rest days
139 riding days

Items lost:
2 cycling caps
1 silk handkerchief
1 base layer
2 keys
1 key ring
1 nail clippers

Finally, this evening, I saw the sun for the first time since passing into Maine; it is just like being in Scotland!
