@ Tourista: I dont plan to go to Canada. Although it would be nice. And I'm sure I'll have a great time! Thanks!
@Indy: Rainbow Hostel. I'll have to look that up. Thanks for the tip. 20 minutes is not bad, considering that thats ALL I'll be doing once I'm at NF! LOL.
Heading west, the AC route goes into Niagara Falls, Ontario just south of Lewiston, NY and takes you right by the falls. The Rainbow Hostel is in Niagara Falls, Canada. It re-enters the U.S. via the Peace Bridge from Fort Erie, ONT to Buffalo. It's my understanding that the Canadian side has better views than the NY side, and there is a recreation trail along the river for much of the way.
Has anyone had any real horror stories when it comes to coping with the heat of the desert and other sections of the WE?I've not done that stretch (yet), but the desert section of the Western Express is all, as far as I'm aware, high altitude. So it'll be dry, and not as hot as the desert along the southern tier. And it will get cold at night. If you can find shade in the mid-day on a hot one, use it. Ride early and late. Our biggest heat issue was a much more humid heat when we experienced a heat wave in Southern Ontario (1984). Every day we learned about places we'd missed with the sunscreen. Hard to cover up well if it's hot. And the sun comes from a different angle every day.
I'm a French cyclist, planning to visit my brother in San Francisco this summer. And I was thinking of cycling the coast from San Francisco up to Seattle. But, after exchanging with my brother and having a look at the itinerary thanks to Google Maps, I 'm afraid that the roads might be a bit dangerous because of the summer traffic and the narrowness of the roads, especially as the summer season is the season of big RV vehicles.
What do you think?
One idea, go to the PA DOT website and look for the PA bike routes. Route S goes along the southern edge of PA. It must intersect the ACA Atlantic Coast Route east of York PA. Switch over to the ACR and follow it to NYC
Getting ready for a coast trip from SF to LA. Have a Santana Tandem with the stock V brakes. What are your suggestions for the best brake pads available to help stop the beast? I have an Arai Drum Brake that I CAN install but don't want to if I don't have to (weight).
We are trying to decide on a best route between Missoulla (MT) and Jasper, AB in early July and thinking of riding south (starting in Jasper or Banff riding to Whitefish or Missoula)? Is there any reason (other than national holidays) to ride in one direction or the other?
Are there any best routes to use (other than Adventure Cycling's wonderful maps) that one would suggest? We are thinking about using touring bikes, not mountain bikes.
First idea is to ride San Francisco to Big Sur, Paso Robles, Yosemite national park and back to San Francisco.
second thought is to ride to lake Tahoe, ride little bit route 89 ( sierra cascades) to Greenville and after that to the coast ( north of San Francisco) , maybe Napa valley is good place to cycle.
I prefer sleep affordable motels, but maybe I will take small tent with me
Do you know good routes or do you have some other advice?
