I found it amazing, while traveling the ACA trans am route that I met quite a few cyclists ... out of the 15 above ... that were traveling somewhere but had no ACA maps and had never heard about the adventure cycling association :-)

I am the Community Development Director for the City of Pittsburg, Kansas, which is on the Transamerica route. We would like to be more welcoming to cyclists as they come through town. Not being an adventure cyclist myself, I have no idea what ya'll need or want from the communities you're trekking through.
We currently have an RV park, with a covered shelter and restrooms, where cyclists are able to pitch tents (it's in a shady spot!) and stay overnight. What other things could we offer?
Thanks in advance for your input!
Riding in eastern Ohio, if I asked how far away someplace was, the answer was always framed in driving time. I never did work out a useful conversion.That is one of the major differences between USA and Europe. When asking for directions in Europe people will never give you the hours or minutes but always the distance in kilometers ... then you can always decide for yourself how fast you are going.
I use normal everyday shoes and not SPD or something similar. I once met a guy who toured with those modern clogs.OK, but I know of a guy who would run marathons in combat boots. I guess it worked for him but most of us used something we found worked better.
I clock around 125 mi pr day.
