I would like to bike from Me. to Wis. I know nothing about cross country travel. Have never biked long distance.
Can you help me brainstorm a plan out. Just type out words that come to your head. Can be anything from type of bike to favorite bed and breakfast's to favorite towns to what shoes to wear.
I cant fly due to ear problems.
I can train, but, not near any major cities due to getting carbon monoxide poisoning easily. IE: Cannot handle Chicago.
Driving causes me to become very drowsy.
I am working on getting into shape. Hey, if I have to walk, I will walk. But, seems to me that going down a hill on two wheels beats walking any day. Its been way "over" 5 years since I have seen my family.
I get too sick to travel.(MCS=multiple chemical sensitivity) Biking has to be, or might be my best option. I never considered this until I met a friend who says that her son travels everywhere by bike. He went from Me. to Oregon no problem. This planted a seed in my mind and made me look back to when I was young...I use to bike everywhere. I never wanted to get my drivers license. Hated driving. Always did, always will. I do not want a vehicle.
I want to get back the life I use to have/live. Even though I am kind of old and rotting. :-) Sometimes it takes a life time to realize who we are and what we really want out of life. When first married, we bought bikes and biked a 100 miles in one day. Got sun burnt too. That was dumb. But, we were young.
Still have the fugi 10 speed minus the hard seat. But, about three years ago, I did buy a mountain bike. Was
hoping to start biking then but couldnt at that point in time. So, thats what I have right now to start with.
If I could, I would franchise "chemical free" bed and breakfast's Inns across the country just so people with MCS could travel more comfortably.
Thank you in advance for your input.
