I am based in the UK and have this aggravating thought that won't leave me alone: crossing the US on my bicycle! There was some hope that this thought would exit my noggin but after finding this site, reading the forum and following a long and winding trail of blogs, it was time to surrender, register and post.
At such an early stage of wondering, the more I read, the longer the list of questions grow. The most complicated bit so far is finding a practical way of getting from West to East across the UK to get to an airport that will fly to the US, a problem that I see a fellow Devonian has mentioned on the forum before.
My first question that I would be grateful for advice on is:
Have any of you started a crossing from Vancouver, Canada and do you have a suggestion for a route from there to join the Trans-Am please and thank you (ok, that was two questions)? Having looked at the ACA overview, there are obviously options but would appreciate further info and recommendations. I am finding it really hard to find a direct flight to anywhere else without changing aircraft one or more times (Seattle/Portland etc).
Another option would be to fly to San Francisco and start from there or via three seperate planes, start in Seattle!
I am thinking of starting on 15/16 June 2013.
There are a million more questions but above are the ones that are stopping further wondering at the moment, any help or general mocking will be greatly appreciated.
