Hi All, I posted a few months ago with questions about the feasibility of riding cross-country with my best friend/cousin once I graduate from high school this year. Everyone was super helpful, and I thought I'd come back to get some input on the general route we should take. We both ride classics: I ride a '79 CX500, and my cousin rides an '80 CM400T. (From here on, I'm going to refer to the two of us as "I", since it's easier.) Some background info -- I have about a month, and like to shoot for pretty low daily mileage since I really like to stop and explore on foot when I find something interesting. However, I'm definitely fine with putting in some super long days when in less interesting areas...For instance, I can imagine that in super flat places with very straight roads (aka the MidWest), I could put in 300-400 mile days (I don't mean to offend anyone who lives there -- if there are super fun roads there, please let me know!) We're planning to start in Western Massachusetts (Northampton) and end in Whistler, BC at the same time that Crankworx (a mountain biking competition) is happening. Here's my current (very vague) route plan: Start in Massachusetts, go west into New York, then south through Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and get on Skyline Drive in Virginia. Take Skyline to the BRP, and take that to the Deal's Gap area. From there, ride the Cherohala (not sure I spelled that right) west, and continue west through Tennessee into Arkansas. Once I get to Oklahoma, I'm thinking one of two things: a) blast through Oklahoma and Texas into New Mexico, and then ride through New Mexico and Arizona to the San Diego area. From there, ride up the entire west coast (through Oregon and Washington), and continue on to Whistler once I get to British Columbia. b) blast through Oklahoma to Colorado, and explore some of the riding there (which I've heard is awesome). Then, go northwest through Colorado/Utah (maybe Wyoming?), through Idaho, then either cut across Washington to the Bellingham area and head north to Whistler, OR go straight north through Idaho into BC and then go west across BC. I know this is fairly long-winded...I just want to give myself the best possible chance of finding an awesome route! I'm open to any route changes, drastic or otherwise. Also, I'm planning to do a live RR, so that I can get more localized route recommendations as I go. Thank you in advance!
