Routes / Southern tier

Would thevSouthern Tier be the least challenging cross country route across the Rocky Mtn?  Would Trans America or Nothern Tier be any easier?  When is best time of year to start in San Diego?

I plan to ride great allegheny passage/ C&O canal.  I understand the trail between Pittsburgh & McKeesport is incomplete.  Can someone suggest an alternate street route from Pittsburgh to McKeesport?

I have a lowrance H2OC gps.  I plan to spend a few months in California.  Lowrance discontinued it's Freedom Maps line.  I want to purchase the U.S. West coast map (SD card).  (F-104 EX-W)  If not to purchase, possibly to rent it out for 3 months!

Hi,

I live in New Rochelle, NY, and enjoy one day trips to NY/NJ/CT. 

Anyone with similar interests?  We could plan some trips together.

General Discussion / leg cramps
« on: September 15, 2007, 10:04:30 am »
Hi,

I was planning a 3 day bike trip from Portsmouth, NH to New Haven, CT.  I have done similar trips once a year.  On my first day out after 50 miles, i was getting cramps in both my legs.  This has happened in the past.  My usual response was to get off the bike and walk, until i worked the cramps out, then continue biking.  However, this time the cramps continued where i couldn't even walk.  I even felt cramp in my hand where i couldn't hold a fork (stopped in a diner to eat & rest).
After an hour the cramps stopped, bit decided to end my trip, and rent a car to get home.  Now two day later, calves of my feet are a little sore.

Has anyone had similar experience? Someone said i may have been dehydrate?  I am 57 years old.   Thanks.
