Hi guys, Im planning on going East to West starting Yorktown on 20 April and taking approx 9 weeks to complete.
Does anyone know estimated temperature ranges? Im about to buy sleeping bag but not sure how cold ..... or warm it gets.
Let me know if I can expect to see you on the Transamerica cycle route (Central)
East Lothian, Scotland
I would "err" on the side of extra warmth in case things are like last year. This summer I rode the portion of the TransAm between Missoula, MT and the east slope of Big Hole Pass (west of Dillon). Got down to slightly below 40 in Darby and Wisdom. That was June 29 & 30. Just outside of Missoula we ran into a Scott who had started from Yorktown at the beginning of May. He had to deal with snow and cold. While this guy had some nice weather out west, he also had to deal with snow in WY and MT in late May/early June:
