Gear Talk / Re: Recommendations for Long Sleeved Jerseys & Tights for Sun Protection

I think you just need a set of sun sleeves. These are just arm and leg warmer like things but designed to protect you from the sun rather than to keep you warm. All the clothing companies have them and most bike shops will carry them in sun intense areas. They can be ordered online as well. I imagine there is not much need for these in a place like Scotland so that probably isn't the place to shop for them.

Here is a link to the ones Pearl Izumi makes:

Gear Talk / Recommendations for Long Sleeved Jerseys & Tights for Sun Protection

Ginger Scotsman with freckles planning to cycle across the USA in summer.  Would appreciate your recommendations for long-sleeved jerseys and tights that cover as much skin as possible, but that are comfortable cycling in hot weather.  Everything I've found so far seems intended for cool weather cycling.

General Discussion / Re: Natchez Trace Parkway - Cell Phone Signals

The Natchez Trace is hardly a wilderness trail. It does, at times, pass through rural areas. It also passes through cities. I imagine cell phone coverage to be on par with any other non-interstate highway bike route east of the Mississippi.
There will be other traffic on the Trace and Park Rangers as well.
Does anyone really need 100% phone access 100% of the time ?
Have a great trip.

Anyone have any recent experience on the NTP with cell phone signals?  I'm getting inconsistent information from the internet and was considering renting a satellite phone in case of emergency.  I really don't care to do that though if there is reasonable coverage on the parkway.  My carrier is Verizon.

It's always nice when I ride into town if there is some type of sign directing me to approved camping spots.  The symbols used on the ACA maps for signs would be helpful.  Often times I have to consult google maps to find the available services.  A big plus for me is the availability of a warm shower.

+1 I would like to see ACA develop a sign format that a town could promote it's services to the touring cyclist;
  • Free water
    Camping free/public/commercial
    Places to eat
    B&B's, hotels, motels accommodating touring cyclist.
    Stores where bicycle and camping supplies can be bought.
Sort like the Interstate exit signs for services and lodging.
A "newspaper" box about events and local maps.

Good condition, no tears. I can take pics upon request.

ACA does not update maps on a yearly basis so I don't know if these are their most current. Publish date listed is 2010

9-10   are 2011
