Count on falling over twice, once within the first hour, and then once again once you get use to them but forget. It won't be long before clipping out will be second-nature; you won't even think about it.+1 To minimize the chances of this find a gym or Y that has a stationary bikes you can use. (They often have pedals with SPD on one side and platform on the other or put your own SPDs on.) Then you can practice getting in and out without the risk of falling. I always tell people to make their first attempt at using SPDs on grass. I didn't and wished I had.
A friend of mine got rear ended on 66. Ended his tour tooWhereabouts Nick? I'm thinking of going back and finishing it but some places e.g. OK City and Amarillo have me looking for a way round them

Although 11th in Tulsa can be an issue, Manchester in St. Louis is much, much worse. In spots along 11th, I either rode on the sidewalk or took the lane, depending on the situation.That's what I should have done John. I agree with you that Manchester was bad. The ACA route through Joplin MO was crummy too especially as there is the Frisco Greenway bike path that takes you to within a couple of blocks of the match line and avoids all the traffic, no need for insets or anything. I found that with my iPhone after following Historic 66 signs got me off route, no such luck in Tulsa.
I've decided to take the ferry from Seattle to Bremerton and follow the "Pacific Coast" route to a point just west of Anacortes. It looks like a nice ride (with the exception of down town Bremerton) with lots to see and some camp grounds along the way.Should be nice. On the ferry keep your eyes peeled in Rich Passage on the way to Bremerton. If you're lucky you'll see orcas + Bald Eagles (America's emblem) are to be seen thereabouts.
Your snap of the Washington Pass ascent reminds me of what I'm in for - Both fun and not so much fun.
OK, it seems that I have been EXTEMELY lucky during all my trips in the US.You certainly have. I took rain gear from Jasper to Portland last summer with blazing sun all the way and not a second of rain. The guidebooks did say you could get snow in June on the Icefields Parkway ( the name gives a hint). I didn't regret taking it, it's just the cost of safe touring IMO. I got hypothermia in the North Cascades when rain turned to sleet and my rain gear was defective (Gore Bike Wear actually replaced it) Never again
