East West Route starting in May
« on: March 14, 2010, 10:37:41 am »
Up until a month ago I was leaving the UK to cycle east through Europe and Asia. I've now had a change of plan and have decided to take on the world in the other direction!!!

Partly because I've toured in Europe before and have never travelled in the US and I also want to catch up with a friend in Vancouver.

I now find myself scouring the net for advice on the best routes from east to west, starting in early May.

I'd probably fly in to Boston or Washington DC.

The Northern Tier via the Erie Connector and North Lakes looks nice, as does heading down to join the Lewis and Clark and linking in to the last section of the Northern Tier.

I will go and have a good trawl through this forum, but if anyone has got any top tips and definate no no's to help me get my plans together quickly I'd be grateful.

Cheers

Stu; We did west to east in 10 weeks in 2008 and used about 6+ weeks of N Tier as well as Erie Connector and Great Lakes in Mich.
We did NT route from Anacortes WA to Glacier Park; then left NT to go to south to Yellowstone/Black Hills/Badlands; SD; southern MN; central WI; ferry across Lake Michigan and then picked up the Great Lakes, Erie Connector, Erie Canal +NT thru most of NY; VT, NH Southern ME. (3700 miles) Details at:http://www.fllt.org/blog/  It was a relaxed pace with stops at all Parks etc.
No matter what route you decide upon..you will see rural USA.
