Right. I've gone on multiple tours where I road "the whole way" on my bicycle, then took the train home. If I ride for 2,000 miles on my bicycle and then ride the train home have I broken some kind of rule and can't say it was a bicycle tour? Of course not. It's just part of carving out a route for the bicycle tour that fits in your allowed vacation time.
