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!

Have consider a used bike? I see 520's and LHT on Ebay quite often. Maybe CL?

We are just finishing the Lewis & Clark. The map panels have a elevation profile along with mileage chart. Also on the map it would show mileage between point byway of black dots. These features are not on the Subject maps.

Just pulled put the Pacific Coast map and noticed it is a different format than other ACA maps. It appears to be a 2012, are there newer ones? The thing I miss is the mileage chart on each panel.

Yes , I know we missed going there due to the rerouting.

My wife and I are currently in Portland and started our cross country ride in Delaware. We picked up the L&C in St. Louis. It has been a fantastic route! You can check out our blog on Crazyguyonabike. It is call"Undaunted Perseverance Acrees America "

The UG Spur will add a number of miles. My thought, and people around here(NE Ohio) do it. There go NW from Pittsburg toward Canton , Ohio and then you can pick up the Ohio to Erie Trail. This will take you right into Cleveland where you can pick up the Northern Tier.

How about the C&O & GAP from DC to Pittsburgh. Work your way up toward Cleveland then pick up the ACA Northern Tier.

we took our tandem, a Co-Motion with S&S couplings, to Europe last year. I was able to get the front and rear rack in the cases with the bike. I did make 2 cases, 10"x26"x26".

Routes / Re: Erie Canal Bike Trail - Stone Dust trails

My wife and I rode it last October from Albany back to NE Ohio. It was a shake down ride on the Long Haul Trucker's I had built up. The surface was mostly packed gravel, though in a few areas the gravel/stone dust was quite fresh and was not yet packed down. We have 26"x 2" tires and even they were abit squirrely at times. We have ridden the GAP & C&O with our hybrids with 32mm tires and that was fine. So I guess it depends on the condition of the trail in different areas. We did jump off and ride the road quite often just to mix it up and to see something different.

We put  Schwalbe Marathon Supremes on our Co-Motion this Summer and toured for the month of July in Denmark. We were on ALL kinds of surfaces and were very pleased.

I was wondering if the maps/route for this tour would be available for someone who would like to do it on their own?

Routes / Missoula to Glacier?
« on: November 28, 2013, 09:41:30 am »
Next year my wife and I will be riding cross country from east to west. we will be starting in Delaware and working our way to St. Louis where we will pick up the Lewis and Clark Route. As I am looking over the maps I see when we get to Missoula we could do a possible detour up to Glacier NP.
So is this something to consider? As it would only be for a few days does it make sense?

I am not a local but I have ridden the GAP & C&O a few times. In fact I am leaving via train tonight to arrive in Pittsburgh tomorrow AM to ride sole down to DC. Did it last year also. A great ride!
I might suggest getting a hold of the TrailBook. Here is the link

Lots of good info.
