sure, parts get skipped. however that which is not skipped is 100% self-propelled.
in the case of new york to california, i suppose you could say you cycled from nyc to la,
but took a bus across kansas....OR...you toured from new york to missouri, and then you
cycle toured from nebraska to california.

or perhaps you tied a rope to the back of your uncle's RV, and he ever so gently pulled you
along...but only provided about 30% assist. you were still pedalling, so.....
