I did eat at Subways a few times on my Santa Fe trail tour and I suspect they will be available fairly often on my upcoming pacific coast tour. Definitely not something you can rely on in remote rural areas though.
Of course, you could spend a bundle and purchase a recumbent.
Gearing up for a cycling tour, and in need of a uber comfortable bicycle seat. Something that would make my derriere feel like riding on a cloud...There is really only one kind of bicyle seat that will give your butt a cloud like feeling, and that is the kind that is found on a recumbent bicycle. My wife rode across the U.S. twice on a Cannondale touring bike before she met me and swore she'd never ride again because of the butt/wrist pain. She agreed to ride coast to coast with me and our son only because I bought her a recumbent. The fact that she would sit on her 'bent to eat lunch sometimes instead of getting off her bike demonstrates how comfortable they are.
