I've read through a bunch of the posts on the Atlantic Coast route but I'm still left with questions.
I live in Charlottesville and we're spending a week on the beach at Pawley's Island, SC June 21-28. I'd like to ride. The most straightforward thing to do seems to be to head from here to Richmond and pick up the Atlantic Coast route and perhaps do the Outer Banks Connecter (is there a map for that?).
I wonder about several things:
--Are there plentiful/sufficient camping options along the way? I might go lightweight and credit card it, however.
--Does anyone have experience riding from Wilmington, along the coast, into SC? I note that the ACA route goes inland here. While I am sure it's a fine route it's the wrong direction considering where I am going.
--Would you recommend heading into the Outer Banks or sticking with the main Atlantic Coast route? Considering the time of year I wonder about traffic.
Thanks a lot,
