Routes / Underground Railroad Route??

So I was wondering what the earliest start date might be starting at the southern end? Would appreciate hearing from those who have done it.

Has anyone ridden this route in this direction? Tell me about it. Thinking about a Autumn trip.

Though I built up our LHT's the one thing I did for sure was use KoolSTop Salmon brake pads.

Great area to ride! My wife and I rode our tandem from The Twin Cities up that way and across the UP and then down the length of Michigan all the way back to Cleveland. About 1500 miles and only 45 minutes of rain!

My wife and I ride LHT's with 26" wheels. This was a deliberate choice as I wanted to have a robust wheel that I could run wide tires. I have 2" Schwalbe Marathon Supremes on both bikes. I think I have become spoiled with the cushier ride!

When riding through Washington State we found lots of onions that had  fallen off the trucks. We picked up a few for our meals!

Routes / Southern Tier in January of February?
« on: December 19, 2015, 08:16:22 pm »
Trying to come up with a Winter tour to escape NE Ohio. I was wondering about part of the Southern Tier from maybe Baton Rouge and work my way to San Antonio? Possibly starting in Atlanta and working our way done to the Route.
So I would appreciate hearing from those of you who live in these areas or have toured at that time of the year to hear about the weather .

My wife and I tour on a CoMotion Speedster. But lately we have been using singles as she likes the long view. Not just my Behind!

We, my wife and I, are interested in the same route. We plan to ride from north west of Montreal and out and around the Gaspe working our way toward NS.

I live in NE Ohio so I am not familiar with any. When we rode cross country last year, east to west on the L&C, I just did web searches for clubs and shop in large urban areas. They were more knowledgeable than I or Google Maps about a good route.

You might contact a local bike shop or cycling club.

I thought the same thing last Fall and posted a similar comment on Bike Forum. Keen responded and stated they will be offering cycling sandals this Spring!
