General Discussion / touring in the rain?
« on: February 18, 2014, 11:22:09 am »
All, curious about riding in the rain.  Do you stop and take cover if possible, or ride through it  Throw on rain gear?  Do you sweat in rain gear and get wet anyway, like when I backpack?  What about rain covers for shoes?  Just wondering what I will need to purchase.

Thanks!

Connecting ACA Routes / ACA Northern Tier
« on: February 15, 2014, 06:02:55 pm »
All,

I am back from a leave here. 

 I live in Maine and want to explore/ tour it,.  I am in Kittery and am curious about the Northern Tier?  I am not really sure how to approach touring the state.  Where to camp?  Routes, etc...  I know the coast is not for me. Any help getting started would be great.

Thanks,  John

I just met a nice guy touring up the coast.  I met him here in Maine, and he had maps with a course laid out and he said he got them from this site??  I did a search here and came up with nothing.  Any thing I am missing?  Thanks

Gear Talk / Shorts question

Ok all, silly question.  Are all bike shorts synthetic chamois now or do they still make real chamois in them? Old school vs new I guess.

Gear Talk / MTB or Toruing bike for touring with bob yak
« on: August 21, 2011, 09:16:43 am »
Hey all, I am wondering what you all think, prefer with a bob yak.  Pros and cons of touring bike or MTB for touring.  Pulling a Bob yak.  I think I am leaning to the trailer instead of panniers.  Is a mtb comfortable and efficent enough for the long haul?  Thanks
