There are race-specific 'bents and, in fact, recumbents hold every unassisted land speed record but those bikes do not do anything except make speed runs (seek human powered vehicles on google).
I currently use a Omnipod diabetes management system and was hoping if I told them I was talking their system cross-country, they might help with finances.

Wow, I had no idea a cycling team was dedicated to Type 1 that was completely comprised of people with type 1. Thanks for the link.
I am on a project down in Sarasota, Florida and there is a large Amish community and I see alot of people riding electric two and three wheel bicycles. The Amish won't ride in cars but I guess an electric bicycle is ok. Interesting
I am doing LA to NY with my wife's brother in the summer of 2010 and am working on about £3000 (currently about $4000). However, this is to include the cost of flying from the UK to one US destination and then back to the UK from a different airport. In addition, we have yet to look carefully at the pros and cons of bringing our bikes with us and paying the baggage charges, buying two sets of bike carriers etc., or buying a new bike in Santa Monica and arranging a buyer willing to snap up a bargain in Battery Park! Then there is a long list of other things to think about including cell phones, insurances, consummables, camel backs etc.
We will be taking 28-30 days to complete the trip, and are planning for $75-$100 dollars per day to cover food and cheap motels. Emergencies will go on the credit card.
We are wanting to ride from Portland,Or to Des moines, Iowa this upcoming June. Would love some insight to a great route.
I am planning on taking the TransAm route, starting out in Colorado in late March, does anybody know what the weather will be like in Kansas and Missouri?
For all you biker/campers out there, what low weight set up do you use, or would you recommend for a short multi-day tour?
This is where I'm at for now, when packing light. One downs bag good to 25 degrees Fahrenheit, and weights 2lb. An emergency tent (>1lb), which could be used only as a canapy/floor while it is low weight, but may be questionable under torrential rain. Thought of purchasing a bivy to better protect myelf from a rain storm. Note, there's no trailer or pannier, just a back pack carrying emergency kit, food, h20 etc. Riding technical back country trails vs. roads. Any thoughts are welcome. thanx.
