We plan to ride from Key West, Florida to Maine by tandem starting in April. Looking at the ACA maps, it appears that we'll have to bring camping equipment although we plan to avoid camping whenever possible.. Will we have to include cooking equipment, or can we plan on finding restaurants and convenience stores?
I can get you some of the way. From Lancaster County, PA up to Lambertville, NJ you won't have much/any trouble finding places to eat and get snacks and drinks. Indoor lodging should be pretty easy if you plan your days right, although you may have to go off route a bit. There is a Best Western in New Hope, PA and the Lambertville Station Inn in Lambertville, PA. Heading north from L'Ville, there is an inn in Stockton, NJ. These places are not cheap. Expect a minimum of $100/night during the week and possibly over $200 on weekends There are also some B&Bs/inns north of New Hope, PA, but I think they are mostly on the PA side of the river. These places are VERY expensive. For example, the Black Bass Hotel, across the river from Bull's Island Recreation Area will cost you about $200/night during the week. More on the weekends. Advance reservations might also be needed as sometimes these places are used for weddings. Personally, I would avoid the PA side of the river as PA 32 is twisty, narrow and can have heavy traffic at times. There is food in Frenchtown and Mildord, NJ. There are motels and places to eat in the Philipsburg, NJ/Easton, PA area. These should be cheaper. Just off route in Delaware Water Gap, PA there is the Pocono Inn. Don’t think there is much between there and Pt. Jervis, NY area. The Cornucopia Inn and Restaurant in Godeffroy, outside of Pt. Jervis, should be relatively inexpensive, and I am sure there are places in Middletown, NY.
