Here is my goal and the tool I am using. Bike/Run a Virtual TransAmerica Route Across America.

http://plainspoken.lbl.gov/index.html;jsessionid=6FA1C198EC6FEB4ED5...

The site lets you track your mileage and even shows a picture of your location. Virginia to California. Good luck!
(It won't add up as much as biking, but going to use the "Walk" column for Swim Miles)

The race is on! 

Unfortunately I won't be adding any bike information until spring - I do my winter biking on a spin bike.

What do you count it as?  The odometer on our spin bikes is actually 200 revolutions of the flywheel, not miles...

I could guesstimate a pace, say 17.5mph which I believe would be fairly on the conservative side. 

I am an analytical chemist so I am a numbers person.  I like numbers to be spot on =)  Bit anal about that.

I more or less use this for spin class and upright bikes at the hotel gym where I travel, depending on my effort level.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.

The Boulder Peak bike course is legendary. It is, literally and named as such, one of the toughest bike legs in the country.
