Title: Atlantic Coast ride
Post by: neil on May 20, 2015, 10:28:10 am
19 years ago we spent 3 months cycling the whole Atlantic Coast following the Mountainers guide. We went south to North, logic being, setting of in spring meant we were following the good weather and the prevailing winds are Southerly.

Looking to take a group back next year, Wilmington to Washington, however ACA route runs North to South, why is that, or am I mistaken

You are mistaken. Almost all ACA routes are bidirectional.

Details, including an explanation of how the maps go both ways:

In the example used, you can see the bi-directional narratives, eastbound and westbound in that particular example.
