Hi all,

I've read through a bunch of the posts on the Atlantic Coast route but I'm still left with questions. 

I live in Charlottesville and we're spending a week on the beach at Pawley's Island, SC June 21-28.  I'd like to ride.  The most straightforward thing to do seems to be to head from here to Richmond and pick up the Atlantic Coast route and perhaps do the Outer Banks Connecter (is there a map for that?). 

I wonder about several things:

--Are there plentiful/sufficient camping options along the way?  I might go lightweight and credit card it, however.     
--Does anyone have experience riding from Wilmington, along the coast, into SC?  I note that the ACA route goes inland here.  While I am sure it's a fine route it's the wrong direction considering where I am going.     
--Would you recommend heading into the Outer Banks or sticking with the main Atlantic Coast route?  Considering the time of year I wonder about traffic.   

Thanks a lot,

Christian

Many thanks!  I for sure need to simply get the map; just want some basic info for now.  If the longest distance appears to be 105 then that's OK--especially as I'd be more or less unloaded if I'm planning a credit card version.  If I go loaded seems like there's plenty of camping options.  Thanks again,

Hi everyone,

I am thinking of doing the Allegheny Mountains loop this summer and wonder about non-camping accommodations along the route.  I love camping but might want to do the route as light as possible.  I wonder if there are enough motels, etc. that one could do this route as a credit card tour?  I am willing/able to ride long days. 

Thanks,

Christian

Thanks a lot for the info!   I need to decide--I've got time--what to do: ride or take the shuttle and just get started on the Great Divide.  How to get my bike to the beginning will be a bigger dilemma than how to get to Banff.

Thanks again

Routes / Calgary to Banff

Hi everyone,

I am hoping to ride from Banff to Missoula next summer on the Great Divide (I do know the route does not take in Missoula; I will get off the route).  I will likely fly to Calgary.  I wonder if anyone's ridden from Calgary to Banff and/or if anyone knows a source of info for bike touring in Canada that might help me map out a route.  It's not very far but I'd sure like to avoid riding on the Trans-Canada and from Google maps it looks like there are alternatives.  I fits rode the MT section of the Great Divide in 1998 and am really looking forward to doing the Canadian section. 

Thanks a lot,

Christian
