Six.If I go on an inn-to-inn tour with ACA,...
Does ACA have any/many of these?
I tend to think most people exaggerate how dangerous a place can beMe too. You'll be fine. I don't think there's anywhere you need to avoid, except possibly some pockets of a few of our very largest cities at night. None of those cities are in the states you mention.
And John N, how about sharing some of that arduously collected data? What's your chain life average and the range?
I think the best way is to ride your route and let us know the actual mileage!!!I know your comment was tongue-in-cheek, but there are many reasons for differences in actual mileage ridden and official map mileage. I rode the TransAm, which has an official mileage of 4241.5, and I adhered religiously to the route, but my mileage came out 4488. The difference is all those little accumulated trips to the grocery store, the swimming pool, the restaurant, the campground, etc. It only amounted to an average of 3 miles a day, but it adds up.
Has it been a winter with a reduced amount of snow with chances of early mountain passIt's too early to ask. March is our snowiest month. We're below average now, but we could easily be above average in a month. If I remember correctly, however, I believe you are starting in the East and doing the TransAm westbound with high-mileage days. So you'll have roughly 2400 miles under your belt by the time you get to the Rockies. Even at 100 miles a day, that'll take you 24 days. Your early option of flying on May 26 would then put you at the foot of the Rockies on June 18 at the earliest. There is almost zero chance of Hoosier Pass being snowpacked on June 18, no matter what kind of winter we have.
